Hank Azaria says he will no longer voice Simpson’s Apu

Hank Azaria has announced that he will no longer be voicing the Indian character Apu in the Simpsons. The announcement comes following years of controversy and accusations of racism. Some have argued that the character, an Indian immigrant who runs a convenience store, was a problematic stereotype of South Asians.

Yes a self employed business/ family man, who integrated into his new country... what a horrible stereotype for South Asians to look up too.

Can't blame him. People kept calling him a racist and that can get you blacklisted from even getting a loan nowadays. Safer to just wash your hands of the whole thing if Fox isn't going to back you.

Again, a character that owns their own business and has a happy and loving family. We can’t allow that blatant racism.

I thought Apu died on the 'Alter of Woke' a couple years ago.

This is just a pathetic time of whining cowards. If an Indian man or women is offended by this character then they ... should fuck off from watching it. It insults everyone and Apu is hardly as mocked as some others

If Apu was a correct depiction of a South Asian stereotype, he would have a few underaged prostitutes in his basement and the Maire would know about it...

Reminds me of back in the 90's when the libtards tried to cancel Speedy Gonzales "for being offensive" but the Mexican American community squashed that shit.

Coward! I mean it's not as if the Simpsons is still going because it's a financial juggernaut. At this point the show is all about legacy and now part of that legacy is that they bent the knee to a leftist cult.
