Ah yes the BRITISHER is now an expert on all things Indian happy to explain things to his white brethren all based on his childhood trips to the motherland and some BBC articles.

Dudes a walking talking stereotype of an NRI. Thats a stereotype I would pay to see get ripped apart lol


First of all, you have no idea how ĎIndianí I am or am not, and guess what... you donít fucking get to decide it. And iíd take anyone, white or any other colour as my brethren over the likes of the RSS, BJP, VHP or any other right wing Indian nationalists.

Aren't you British? So not sure why you're getting wound up over an American who took issue to this character or speaking for 1.2 billion Indians I do not know.

The interpretation of this character is also hilarious. Most of the other accents are on point but his is ridiculously over exaggerated. Which Indian speaks like that - a Malyali maybe but even that is pushing it and there aren't many Malyalis in Los Angeles.

I once had a White British girl tell me my accent was 'attractive' for an Indian. She didn't understand why I just walked off. Had another Canadian tell me they learnt so much about Hindu culture from Apu.
Lol, baffling people.

It is clear as day now that the only people who can write stories about us will be us, not even Indian Americans or British Indians and we will slowly exert our influence all over the world just as the RSS has made in roads into American universities. There can be no negotiation on this

When hank auditioned the producers asked him to make the accent as offensive as possible and this is on record.

Hank deserves the same treatment as wendy donniger and its only a matter of time before he gets it

Those comparing him to Willie and Fat Tony somehow missing the fact the issue is about race, which Americans are rightly very sensitive over given their history and present, although we should be just as sensitive given our history and present also (I know from experience on RAWK this is not the case the amount of stupid shite I've read).

The Simpsons being boss meant Apu has stood for plenty of positive things. But yeah, whole white guy doing a heavily exaggerated Indian accent while playing a character formed from a stereotype Asian immigrant is most definitely out of date. Suddenly writing him out would prob be the worst way to deal with it, but people who are uncomfortable with it are most definitely allowed to say they are uncomfortable with it.

White people voicing other ethnicity generally out of date I think in 2018. Even South Park had black guys voicing the black characters!

I'm pretty glad I saved myself some time by not responding to Straw Pirate Hat and kept reading the thread.

Can someone explain to me though, why it is that Apu is getting removed now, when the Simpson is less relevant than it's ever been? I realise that times and the culture has changed by only until reading this thread I realised that some guy started the movement.

Also, I think I've decided why I like comedians such as Bill Burr and the like. The type who aren't afraid to say offensive stuff within a certain context and not apologise for it. Things are pretty ridiculous now.

Agree entirely. Itís a difficult issue. The issue in this thread has been the way certain posters have expressed their views, not the views themselves.

Genuine question, but why is it about race? He's an Indian character, Hank does an Indian accent. Its not a Pakistani accent, which is different or other "brown" accent, it's particularly from one nation, just as Willie and Tony are white characters from different nations with different accents.

I never understood the whole "you can only do your own colours accents" thing. Is a black guy allowed to do a  carribean accent? Am I allowed to do a French accent? But not Chinese?
