There’s been a lot of Nazi news this week—in fact, the only reason I hesitate to say there’s been too much is that if there are Nazis, ignoring them is not the way to make them go away. There’s also been a lot of talk lately over the relative morality of punching them, and it looks like Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch is coming down firmly on the pro-punching side.
As Cartoon Brew reported, Hirsch isn’t the first person involved with a Disney property to use it to weigh in on current events, but Hirsch’s method is a bit more indirect, probably to avoid the kind of trouble it seems like We Bare Bears artist Louie Zong got into. On Tuesday, Hirsch tweeted a non-request request: “If anyone felt so inclined to do a drawing of Grunkle Stan punching a Nazi I’d be very cool with that.”
Unsurprisingly, the talented Gravity Falls fans/Nazi opponents on the internet were more than happy to comply:

Hirsch liked and replied accordingly in approval, and … well, we can only imagine Stan himself would approve.
