For nearly 30 years, The Simpsons has remained an American favorite, mainly because the show pokes fun at normal, everyday life. They have the lazy white guy, the neurotic white woman, the crazy Scot, the fat and stupid cop, the drunk teachers, the obnoxious religious types … The Simpsons has been making fun of America for decades.

And sorry, not sorry, there is no such thing as a protected ‘class’ of people in Springfield.

Hari Kondabolu (who we guess is a comedian) took issue with the show’s portrayal of Apu going so far as to make a documentary about it, and last night The Simpsons finally addressed Hari’s concerns as only they could.

Awww, Hari is upset he couldn’t bully The Simpsons into changing a character who’s been on their show for nearly 30 years and has suddenly been deemed politically incorrect.


Watch how they responded:

From The Hollywood Reporter:

In the episode “No Good Read Goes Unpunished,” Marge and Lisa indirectly discuss the portrayal of Apu. In the scene in question, Marge has edited a new version of The Princess in the Garden, tailoring it to what would be acceptable and inoffensive in 2018. Marge reads the story to Lisa, but the new version is much shorter and lacking in an “emotional journey” for the central character. Both Marge and Lisa then make reference to Apu, with Lisa looking at a picture of the character and saying “something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive, is now politically incorrect. What can you do?”

Yup, what can you do?

Other than making fun of how absolutely ridiculous this plight has been from the beginning.

Who is this guy again?

Including their most ‘Liberal’ character, Lisa Simpson.

As Nelson would say, ‘HA HA.’
