Actor Hank Azaria To Stop Voicing Apu On ‘The Simpsons’

Hank Azaria, who has played dozens of Simpsons’ characters over the show’s 30-year history, announced that he will no longer voice Kwik-E-Mart owner Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, saying outcry from critics who feel the Indian immigrant is a bigoted stereotype opened his eyes to the issue. What do you think?

“Of course he’d wait to say that 15 years after the show went off the air.”

“I’m proud that my years of impersonating Apu to harass my Indian classmates finally helped Hank see the light.”

Norris Mercer • Corn Shucker

“I’m all for political correctness, but it’s going too far when you can’t even mock cultures you know nothing about.”
