New Documentary Calls ‘The Simpsons’ Racist!

Looks like change might be coming to Springfield!

 

If you’re a fan of ‘The Simpsons,’ you know who Apu is… The owner of the Kwik-E-Mart.

Well now there’s a new documentary calling the character, and the show, racist!

It’s called ‘The Problem With Apu,’ and it alleges that an Indian character should not be voiced by a white actor, and only encourages harmful stereotypes.

The Actor who voices Apu, has responded to the documentary saying it makes some good points, and has given the people at ‘The Simpsons’ a lot to think about.
