Internet: 1 Officer Bubbles: 0
Const. Adam Josephs launched a defamation suit with the "primary objective" of removing the "Officer Bubbles" cartoons from the Internet, but they are back online with dozens of new comments from YouTube users that challenge him to add their names to the list of people being sued.
It's an online community that refuses to be bullied into silence.
"Officer Bubbles and his lawyer think they can intimidate us?" one Toronto poster writes and signs it Oliver Davies.
Josephs' lawyer James Zibarras suggested the Toronto police officer might drop the defamation suit against YouTube, the creator of the cartoons and the 24 commenters after the cartoons were pulled off the popular site.
But now Officer Bubbles is back – arresting Santa Claus, beating up a news photographer and subjecting President Obama to the secret five-metre law.
The eight cartoons were uploaded on Oct. 17 by a new user – MisterOfficerBubbles – and have already been viewed more than 44,600 times and garnered 77 new comments.
