Simpsons Responds to Apu Controversy - Update: Sped gets Apu Banned from Simpson’s

  • There is a bug with the post editor. Images pasted from other websites from your clipboard will automatically use the [img] tag instead of uploading a copy as an attachment. Please manually save the image, upload it to the site, and then insert it as a thumbnail instead if you experience this.

    The [img] should essentially never be used outside of chat. It does not save disk space on the server because we use an image proxy to protect your IP address and to ensure people do not rely on bad third party services like Imgur for image hosting. I hope to have a fix from XF soon.

Which character will be axed next for being problematic?

That Dumb Derp

To be fair, the Netflix series that Adi Shankar is producing is the actually decent Castlevania animated series, so that's something pleasant.

However, judging by some of the things he's retweeted, stirring the pot was definitely his intention. Not helping is the fact that he created this buzz through a false rumor.

In the same way one respects the works of a good or great creator who happens to be a loathsome person without dismissing the awfulness (see: the actually talented cows), that's the treatment one would have to give to Adi.

Unless you don't like the Castlevania show.
 
You know what would be fucking awesome? Have Lisa start a campaign in the show to have Apu deported because he reinforces negative indian stereotypes. At the end, a bunch of townfolk (all white) put on black masks and drag Apu, kicking and screaming, out of Springfield.

Then lisa can take her mask off and say "Yeah! We scored one for diversity!" Then everyone else takes off their mask and Lisa notices she's in a sea of all white. She looks at the screen with a troubled expression, credits.
