    Hank Azaria told a Hollywood blog he has no plans to continue voicing the character of Apu on “The Simpsons.” The character has drawn criticism for reinforcing racial stereotypes claims ‘comedian’ Hari Kondabolu.

    So can anybody just call themselves a "comedian" these days? Giving comedy a bad name imo.

    Really though the Simpsons as a whole has always been massively dependant on stereotypes, so was stuff like Seinfeld.

    As the trailer mentioned I think the difference between Apu and say Fat Tony is that Italian Americans have a much greater presense in US pop culture. I don't really think that the Simpsons pulling this character does all that much to change that, especially as the show now exists mostly as reruns and clips on the net.

    In the UK the Simpsons was just as popular as in the US in the 90's and early 00's and South Asian shopkeepers are even more common but its never really taken off as a negative sterotype as much.

    They should get rid of Homer and Bart and just let the show be about Lisa.

    So what? He's rich AF and still does voices of other characters.

    He's still happy as a hippo.

    So this fat fuck did a whole documentary on a secondary character of an animated sitcom ? Wtf ?
    Who gives a shit if the voice actor isn't indian ? It's called ACTING for a reason dumbass ...
    Women are voicing male children all the time, and no superman actor could really fly or spam laserbeams from it's eyes ...
    Modern left has become insane. And retarded. I think we need to create a new word ... Insanetard ?

    I am not Indian. If Indians are offended, they are offended. Though not everything should be judged in a SJW context. Could be just changing with the times.

    The accent was pretty good, so I don't really care. I bet a lot of people saying that him doing the voice is OK, also moan about minorities cast white roles though.
