The answer is no. SpongeBob SquarePants has not been cancelled despite the online rumors and #SaveSpongeBob Twitter hashtag.
The hashtag and cancellation rumors have risen after a breaking story from Kazakh and rumors in Indonesia stating that the show has been cancelled. Kazakh officials have deemed lovable SpongeBob a hooligan and bad influence. The tribe is currently trying to censor the cartoon television show.
Furthermore, a Local Indonesian media website Republika said that the government claims that parents should “keep your child away” from SpongeBob, Sinchan, Little Krishna, and others because of violence and ‘possible homosexuality.’ Yes, there are still ignorant people and countries that are afraid of homosexuality.
