'SpongeBob SquarePants' episode pulled due to concern about virus storyline

Nickelodeon has pulled the virus-themed episode "Kwarantined Krab" from the currently airing 12th season of "SpongeBob SquarePants" after deciding it was uncomfortably similar to real-life events. “The ‘Kwarantined Krab’ centers on a virus storyline, so we have decided to not air it due to sensitivities surrounding the global, real-world pandemic,” the network explained in a statement.
