I found this on TMZ:
The Hindu American Foundation is urging Simpsons creator Matt Groening to do something about the character Apu which they find offensive and potentially dangerous to the Hindu-American community.
Hindu leaders are reacting to a recent interview Groening gave to USA Today in which he said he’s proud of the Apu character. A spokesperson for the HAF, says the stereotypes applied to Apu make the Hindu-American community feel marginalized and has led to Hindu kids being bullied. They’re calling on the show to make some changes to the character, and Groening says, “We’re working on something kind of ambitious.” (TMZ)
Apu is no longer voiced by Hank Azaria after the show was criticized for using a white actor.
Simpsons creator Matt Groening has made it clear that Apu will not be going away, but there will be some changes.
What do you think? Are we too sensitive?
