The show was undeniably funny, and its fans were absolutely devastated, causing “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and the hashtag #Brooklyn99 to trend on Twitter as soon as news broke.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine dealt with homophobia in the police force and in general, bisexuality, biphobia, racial profiling, has a diverse cast of people who don’t play into stereotypes, and so much more.

If nothing else, I hope every producer, writer, actor, crew member, etc who worked on Brooklyn Nine-Nine looks at Twitter today and sees how DEEPLY loved their show is, and that the work they’ve been doing had an impact. It means a lot to a lot of people. It’s taken over my TL.
