The Simpsons May Bow To SJW/NPC Pressure And Remove Apu From The Show

    The beloved Indian-American Kwik-E-Mart owner, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, may be written out of the long-running Fox company The Simpsons. After backlash from ‘progressives’ claiming that the character pushed negative stereotypes of Indian-Americans, producer Adi Shankar launched a spec script contest in what he hoped would be a solution for the character. He said he found the ‘perfect script’ and hoped that The Simpsons would develop it into an episode but learned that the showrunners plans were to completely write out the character.

    “I got some disheartening news back, that I’ve verified from multiple sources now: They’re going to drop the Apu character altogether. They aren’t going to make a big deal out of it, or anything like that, but they’ll drop him altogether just to avoid the controversy.” — Adi Shankar

    Al Jean, executive producer of the show denied these claims citing that Shankar was not a producer on the show and did not speak for it. It has been over a year since the character, voiced by Hank Azaria, has had a spoken line in the show.

    Toruk's Take

    Anyone who has visited a 7-Eleven with any frequency in their youth has probably run across someone with characteristics like Apu. And if you aren’t an SJW/NPC you appreciate the humor because of these familiarities. The best humor revolves around the truth, if you spend your life running from the truth, you tend to be a humorless sack of bile. You could easily put together a Korean shop owner character as well, with characteristics that would be recognized by people all over the United States. This isn’t ‘racism’ or ‘reinforcing negative stereotypes’, it’s truth. Though, I would love to see how someone proves that running your own shop is negative in any shape, fashion or form.

    Yes, we have all met an Apu, but for most of us this interaction does not extend past the store counter. The great thing about shows like The Simpsons is that we get to learn more about the individual, their family, their home life. In doing so, Apu becomes more than just a guy with a funny accent, he becomes a friend. Someone we are pleased to see when they come walking up the street. Someone whose day you ask about when you stop in to pick up some items. Apu is an example of Diversity Done Right. He reminds us, in  a good way, that shop owners aren’t just robots facilitating a task, they are people with ambitions and desires just like the rest of us.  This understanding improves our interactions in the real world. It opens the door for other Indian-American characters, with different personalities and different backgrounds. It accomplishes more than any regressive-left sanctioned character ever could or ever will.

    Apu is our friend. The SJW/NPC scum are trying to kill him.

    I say we respond accordingly.
