That's something that hasn't applied to this show in almost 20 years.
No thank you, don't come again: THE SIMPSONS are dumping Apu, nailing the penultimate nail into this show's coffinin tv

"Penultimate" means "second to last." Look it up, smarty.
Simpsons stopped trying about 20 years ago.
Who cares? its a dead show walking like all other networks programs

Social justice warriors have gone crazy and attacking every show and nitpicking. APU is not voiced by an Indian (from India) but a what man so he has to go.

Tank you berry mush. Come agin.
The "cancer farts" scene on FAMILY GUY's season premiere was funnier than every single solitary piece of new SIMPSONS media this century put together, and I include the movie in that statement.
Yes, that's why I said it. This stunt is going to cost the show a bunch of viewers in addition to the ones it's already shed over the years, and that drop in ratings will be the last nail in the common.
Remember, they said "now to the time the show becomes unprofitable." Make that time now. #NoApuNoSimpsons
Common = coffin.

Because every writer who understood STEM-type material followed Matt Groening to FUTURAMA, every writer who understood human nature went to KING OF THE HILL along with Greg Daniels, and newer, younger writers who could actually write funny jokes got hired by FAMILY GUY instead. That left THE SIMPSONS with nothing but mighty big shoes to fill and third-rate hacks to try and fill them, and it has constantly and consistently failed miserably at doing so for twice as long as they were any good to begin with. Even funny lines and songs from the show's first few seasons are just painful reminders of just how bad the show has gotten and how it's never going to get any better. It's like expecting your arthritic 90-year-old grandmother to ever turn back into the buxom 25-year-old young woman she used to be.
If they had ended no later than the year 2000 and made "Behind the Laughter" the last episode, they would rightly be remembered as both the greatest TV show ever, the show that saved TV animation from the Saturday morning ghetto, and the show that proved that Fox was not going to be the next DuMont Network. Now, they're remembered as a show that started great until it degenerated into the exact same hacky schlock it used to make fun of.
And what's funny about this to those of us who are familiar with LIFE IN HELL, the comic he did first, is that Matt Groening has always been a hardcore liberal Democrat, never had a kind word to say about Ronald Reagan throughout the 1980s. And now he's the target of something he helped enable.
And it's even more ironic when they depicted Apu as being someone who overcame anti-immigrant prejudice and became a citizen.
Meanwhile, stuff that genuinely is offensive is put on a pedestal.
What about Dr. Hibbert? He is a parody of a man who has been convicted of raping a lesbian.
And BTW, the voice of Apu also played Agadore Spartacus in THE BIRDCAGE.

Why, so America can watch the Fonz, the rest of the Cunninghams, and Chachi bury Joanie?
Too late for a LAVERNE & SHIRLEY reunion now, unless you'll settle for Laverne, Lenny, and Squiggy.

Stop being racist.
I don't remember that show. What network was it on and who was in it?
