"packages looking for funding" when attempting to create new react app

I am attempting to create-react-app but any time I try it looks like it is creating, then gets to a point where it just tells me “177 packages are looking for funding run ‘npm fund’ for details” then stops right there.

This same thing happens no matter what terminal I use. I have reinstalled node and that didn’t fix it. When it tells this message the terminal basically freezes and I am unable to type anything further. I am basically stuck and unable to proceed with any npm commands.

To be clear I am running npx create-react-app appname and it tells me installing packages for a short while then gives the message “177 packages are looking for funding run ‘npm fund’ for details” and just stops there and I am unable to move forward with any commands.

Are there any fixes or this or am I doing anything wrong?
