They should write him out where he doesnt feel welcome in Springfield anymore because he sees himself as above everyone else for having more minority points. The town is sad to see him leave but he storms off in moral superiority, never to step foot in Springfield again

Perfect Catch 22:

You can't have a "minority" character be the butt of a joke or suffer anything bad without being called a bigot.
If you only have white male characters, you'll be called a bigot for lack of diversity.
All shows need to be minorities talking about how bad their oppression is.

Old edgy Simpson's would have made him a Trump supporter.


Just kidding, they would have went full on anti-Trump.

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

Yup. "I love this show" claims man who says the show has been racist and offensive for 30 years. This is because he is a heavily americanized "Indian" man, trying to blend in and emulate that breathtaking mix of condescension and arrogance that think plays well with most (leftist) Americans, especially when it comes to race. Pretending that Indian people, and Apu, was tokenized like a black man all these years, when most Indian people (born and raised) have never had an issue with the character (and had found him endearing), makes him look like a retard who clearly is out of touch with the culture he uses as the only remarkable characteristic about him.

Can't speak for any Indian people, but last I've heard they had no real issues with Apu in general, quite the contrary, but it's become "problematic" for Americans now. I hope this fucker gets socially ostracized from true Indians.

Isn't this basically the same thing that happened with Speedy Gonzales? 'Murrcans said he was racist but Mexicans loved him?

You could argue that most of Latin America identifies with Speedy Gonzales in one way or another. But even then, Speedy was amazing.

But apparently it doesn't matter anymore, a bunch of brocialists got offended on behalf of all of Mexico, just like this "Indian" dude did for Apu.

I worked at a motel that was owned by an Indian family. They thought Apu was hilarious and that they clearly did their research on Indian culture. The line "You can't sell that! Karma can only be portioned out byt the cosmos!" had them roaring with laughter.

This guy is just a pussy who needs to seriously stop fucking whining.

Comedy embraces stereotypes. Why the left feels they need to kill humor is beyond me.
They're authoritarians. What political wing they sit in is irrelevant. Who can't be criticised? That person is in charge.

There was a day and age where only the court jester could mock the king. The guy that sparked all this is just an asshole. The people who made his message viral are either useful idiots or... attempting to control who can be mocked and who can't. Today you can't mock this or that ethnic group. Tomorrow that might stay the same. But rest assured, those who are seeking such controls will be fully beyond mocking... provided they're smart enough to get their hands on them, rather then building a control console other forces wield. Either way, beware the people who would set themselves above ridicule.

Authoritarians don't like humour, it's quite a sword that some are naturally incline to and fewer still have solid defences against. So no, nothings a joking matter. No fun allowed. Get back in the salt mine.

In general, I've noticed that actual immigrants are near impossible to offend while their Americanized children are the ones who turn SJW. The only exceptions I've found to this rule are a small number of absolutely insane Indian women and anyone who is super into Islam.

Actual immigrants love it and they tend to give it as well as they get it.

For shits and grins, they should replace him with a black transexual midget whose sole shtick is to make the people of Springfield wish Apu would come back.

Fuck modern media and the political/diversity/sjw/whatever movement up their collective asshole. Simpsons may have been shit for years and deserved to end ages ago but this is not the way I was hoping it would start to die. RIP Apu. You deserved better.
