Did Disney weigh in on the headlines swirling around law enforcement on Fridayâ€™s episode of â€œGirl Meets Worldâ€?
Bloggers and social media users sure think so.
In the episode, Danielle Fishel, who plays Topanga, repeatedly thanked a stern-but-friendly cop characterÂ and pointed out what a hard job police have.Â
The episode,Â â€œGirl Meets True Maya,â€ featured a guest appearance by Reginald VelJohnson, of â€œFamily Mattersâ€ fame, who played a local police officer trying to protect the local park. The officerÂ took notice of Sabrina Carpenterâ€™s character, Maya, as sheÂ painted a mural in the park with the word â€œhope.â€Â Though it was an act of vandalism, he let her off with a warning.
Earlier in the episode, the same officer showed leniency with a child who accidentally stole candy from a store, not realizing he was supposed to pay.
One fan blog noted, "To us, whether intentional or unintentional, there was also a really important message about the police in this episode, as well: Theyâ€™re not all bad... You can argue against the realism of this said cop character, but reading between the lines, it felt as though the show was trying to enforce that there are still good police officers out there, ones who exercise empathy and know that certain punishments do not always fit certain crimes."
Some viewers took note of the epsiode's message as well.
Disney did not immediately respond to FOX411's inquiries into when the episode was filmed. The show's stars, including outspoken teen Rowan Blanchard, have not made mention of the police presence in the show on social media. Blanchard did not return FOX411's request for comment.Â
