I don't think the "Uproar" would be that severe. You have to remember, PPGD isn't 'that' well known, and most of its fans are pretty intelligence and mild when it comes to the more touchy things. We can put things into perspective, we know this character and the people who made it.
My only fear of such a thing should it actually happen would be it feeling forced, a forced thing that loses its shock value.
