Not much to say about this. Simpsons have been dead for a very long time, so ultimately I do not care, but this does set a horrible example for content makers to follow. Here is a great video refuting "The Problem With Apu" which says it better than I ever will.
Everyone should watch this! This makes all the sense in the world.

>Makes documentary where he spends 45 minutes sperging about Apu which basically ends with him punching Apu because he hates the character so much

"WTF I'm so sad he's gone. I swear I didn't want this to happen you guys"
Hopefully that ends his career.

His entire career hinged on being able to cry about Apu. Now Apu is gone and soon so will his career. Time to go back to whining about Trump like every blue checkmark.

Marge Simpson was shocked to discover the number of stereotypes in a book that she was reading, so set out to re-write it for 2018.

However, in rewriting it she discovered that she saps most of what was good about the book from it.

She then said, "What am I supposed to do?" before Lisa Simpson broke the fourth wall and said: "Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive, is now politically incorrect. What can you do?"

A photo of Apu then appeared in the shot with the caption: "Don't have a cow" before Marge said: "Some things will be dealt with at a later date" and Lisa added: "If at all".

This is a weaksauce way of addressing this nontroversy, the real way of answering to it would be to make an episode focused solely on India where they supercharge the worst stereotypes to 11, right down to Homer squatting next to an Indian to take a shit on the street while groaning in pleasure "Ahhh, no wonder they keep saying India's gonna become a global superpower!" followed by Bart rolling in cow shit for good luck.

Best part is it doesn't even happen in India proper, they're just Apu's family visiting Springfield to enrich the local culture.

The Simpsons writers are ten steps ahead of everyone else. The people complaining about Apu are all Westerners, who happen to not be white. They're not Indian by nationality. People who live in India are likely more offended by the "don't have a cow" remarks than the portrayal of a character, because it's a sacred animal. This slipped right on by those agnostic western liberal Dikshits.

Also, DIKSHIT!

Apu is a business owner, I suppose, but if you did artificially rewrite the character to put him on a level with Burns then you’d have a different problem - wealthy people in The Simpsons are typically played as uncaring, out of touch, cruel or even evil. Apu would either have to take those qualities on or he’d quickly fade into the background.

In fact, there's a comic in which he partners with Burns and, yes, becomes somewhat evil. Then, he realizes that it's a lot better not to be that wealthy, but a good person instead.

Hari’s actually making a movie with Cunty West and her black husband (it’s technically his movie). They ‘ve been begging for money to produce it.

Comedy embraces stereotypes. Why the left feels they need to kill humor is beyond me.
And comedy also does well in making fun of said stereotypes and the culture they can come from. The Boondocks can come to mind with stuff like this:

It can also be noted that Apu isn't exactly just "store owner of Indian descent" when he has moments like this:
