In addition to significant changes to the streaming service, a number of unscripted and animated content has been removed from HBO Max, including over 200 episodes of Sesame Street (via Diversity). While the losses of many of the affected shows have sparked outrage online, Sesame Street in particular has gone viral on Twitter due to how widely angry posts have spread since the news spread.

Popular movie account @Srirachachau, for example, retweeted the news and added, “Every child should have the opportunity to grow up on Sesame Street, it’s terrible to lose that.” User @RiseFallNickBck went so far as to question HBO Max’s goal in light of the loss of Sesame Street episodes.

Meanwhile the user @benimede, who included #FireDavidZaslav in their username, retweeted the Sesame Street news item and wrote, “Sesame Street has been introduced to you by the letters W, T and F.” His post got over 600 likes.

In an official statement, a spokesperson for HBO Max explained the removal of programming from the streaming service, including more than 200 episodes of Sesame Street, as part of HBO Max’s merger with Discovery+ (via Entertainment Weekly). So, as the official merger of the two streaming services approaches, it’s possible that more episodes or shows could be removed in the future.
