We need more people like Stan Lee Unfortunately we're past the era of people doing things out of passion. Now, everyone either just wants to make easy money or have some stupid political agenda to push. Stan? Stan just wanted to make characters that people could relate to and tell interesting stories.

Ehhhhhh I think that would be going too far, personally. I think just keeping it minimal for now would be the respectful way to go.

Tom Holland's Peter Parker does it too. Holland is British, yet Peter Parker is an American character, so he has to put on an American accent to make it believable that he's actually from Queens. Apu has the accent so that it's believable that he's an immigrant. Hell, there was an entire episode dedicated to him acquiring citizenship, plus many more episodes devoted to him. In terms of Simpsons characters that aren't the core Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa and even Maggie, he's one of the more fleshed out characters in the entire show. He's deeper than a simple token stereotype. Anyone who's actually watched the show knows that.

Now the person who made that documentary is complaining about the possibility of Apu being written out of the show, whether the info was even accurate or not. There's literally no way to please these people. 1. Write Apu out = muh representation! 2. Keep Apu in = muh stereotypes! 3. Change Apu and get rid of the accent = muh whitewashing! 4. Never have written Apu in the first place = MUH REPRESENTATION! (again) Never cave in to these clowns.

Should I be offended by any of these scenes? https://youtu.be/6khA6IFifac There's literally an arcade cabinet in the background of one scene that says "NUKE CANADA" and I find it hilarious.

: > How is it blackface? Are you saying people cannot ever use another culture in comedy? Is a cartoony Italian suddenly italianface? What the fuck. Doesnt work that way... Italians have a long history in american/western media and are considered white. They have an established identity and **always** had a huge presence in western media with thousands of icons/actors... making fun of an italian (or irish/german/white american) stereotype in a cartoon is not gonna impact peoples perception of them. Its already established, both positively and negatively. At the time Simpsons was released Apu was probably one of the only Indians portrayed in western media. It wasn't a social commentary or parody of indians... it was them defining what was "indian" for the western audience. How cultures are portrayed in media, has a huge impact on how they are they are percieved by others. Apu can be seen as a direct analog to blackface, as black people didnt have any media presence in the 19th century, so white people put on black paint and defined what the western world thought of black people. It took many years for this negative blackface stereotype to get completely rooted out of western culture. All I can say is, Apu has only had a negative influence on the perception of indians and removing him is a step in the right direction.

You're making a claim without providing anything to back it up. Now leave my thread, troll. I said good day.

And that is not my concern if you want to use the good o&#x27; tactic of playing dumb indefinitely. Ok so you don't understand the question. The question is "how is Apu offensive" and you're answering with "because he is". You're not answering the question, so I will not continue to interact with you.

Being a collection of just about all Indian stereotype there are in the western world and have them play as the punchline is not disrespectful enough for you? Next you'd be telling me tokenism is such a good practice of representation and diversity in media. I have no idea why you'd greyed your hair over PAX but actively welcomes to Abu shenanigan. But I guess it's not different to the other irl issues like how the gay people are often racist towards Asians and Blacks for some reason, in spite of the fact they should be the anti-discrimination champions given the nonsense they have to go through. Probably because PAX offends you on a personal level while the other doesn't, so you just say one is bad and the other is okay, even though they are both insulting and wrong.

A racially stereotyped caricature whose existence begins and ends with the said stereotypes, who is also there to just fill an arbitrary sense of diversity as a token character, is not disrespectful? Okay.

You did not say *how* Apu is disrespectful. Give me examples. He's shown practicing his religion the way he wants to.
