The Simpsons Will No Longer Have White Actors Playing Non-White Characters

Published: Saturday 27th Jun 2020 by David

The Simpsons is making changes.

Learn how below…

Producers behind the show have been accused of hiring Caucasian actors to portray stereotypical characters of colour and are now committed to rectifying the mistake.

Moving forward, The Simpsons will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters.

The statement released on Friday came after the actor Hank Azria stepped away from the role of Apu after realising how his portrayal of the South Asian character may have been used to uphold stereotypes which may have spilled out into the real world.

I started thinking, if that character were the only representation of Jewish people in American culture for 20 years, which was the case with Apu, I might not love that.

    Wow! This is the most stupidest thing I ever heard. Voice acting isn’t about race and it’s about voice Uniqueness. How about Hispanic and asian characters? Are they going to be replacing white voice actors for those roles too? This is even way beyond Sensitive….
