The Problem with Apu (Tom and Jerry style)

I'm sure you've all heard of the Apu contraversy, but in case you haven't... basically this one 'comedian' Hari Kondabolu produced a documentary stating how he believes the character of Apu to be racist and offensive, and called for his removal from the show. Initially it looked like The Simpson's were going to comply, but it seems that common sense prevailed, and they have decided to keep Apu within the show (for now)
I was going to do a full video commenting on the matter, but I've already seen other IRmysrs make much better videos than I could produce (check out Brain Dump) . So decided to make this silly little video instead. Enjoy!

    That ”comedian” was such a turd. Then later pretending like he did it for a cheap gag. ”Yay, let's create racial controversy over something that’s genuinely never been an issue...for anyone” (and if it was...grow up).

    I know I'm late for that discussion, but I never understood why Apu was seen as racist. Apu is a hardworking guy, who used to be a true ladies man before his marriage. He is proud of his culture and treats his family and friends with respect. And out of all the stereotypes why him? Willie, Fat Tony and so many others are stereotypes but it seems like people only complain about Apu. A character taht has is flaws, but is still very likable.

    I'm not someone who obsesses about liberalism or the representation of ethnic minorities, neither have I watched much of The Simpsons or have much emotional investment in that show and its characters, but even I have to admit that this is a pretty damn petulant and tasteless knee-jerk reaction of a response that grossly oversimplifies and outright misinterprets the intention of the person you're trying to call out. What do you think people, did this guy actually watch "The Problem about Apu" or did he just read a bunch of comments on social media that said "This Indian douche got butthurt over Apu!"? I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume the latter.

    It's not even really political correctness that did this. It was misunderstanding Apu and the point of the Simpsons. Apu is genuinely a great member of Springfield's community and just appears to be a stereotype of something. Like a lot of Simpsons characters.

    "Hari Kondabolu produced a documentary stating how he believes the character of Apu to be racist and offensive, and called for his removal from the show" - You haven't actually watched the documentary. That's not what it's about at all. And clearly none of your fanbase have actually watched it either. Maybe you should stop making videos about shitty meaningless youtube drama and join the real world and get a little sense of perspective.

      The problem is that people like the comedian and others like him, don't see that, they see only what's in front of them so instead they only see color and voice nothing more and believe the only reason for their existence is because people are racist and want to laugh at minorities but it's only fine if it's in the reverse, hypocrisy at its finest.

    Dude, why are you misrepresenting BOTH Hari Kondabolu's point and the Simpson's response SO FUCKIG BADLY? This is an outright lie. Kondabolu never asked for *removal* of Apu from the show, he - as a person that Apu represents on the show - exercised his right to critique what a racist stereotype the character is and how it's a problem that he's being voiced by a white actor. Lo and behold, even Hank Azaria, said actor, agreed with his points. Minority voices should be heard and at least considered when they express that a popular cartoon keeps mocking their identity and culture. The Simpsons, somehow still being a big mainstream show, had the choice to just ignore Kondabolu's documentary and still do their thing. They decided to address it anyway, SUPER BADLY, with an episode that literally concluded with "some things will be dealt with at a later date, if at all" and "what can you do?", because being openly dismissive towards valid criticism is totally a Good Idea™ . Then, to double down, later they announced they plan to retire the character, because again there's no better way to solve a problem than never actually addressing it - easier to scrap thing altogether than to fix its flaws. 'Common sense' here clearly is not aimed against an Indian comedian who dared to call out a white show on misrepresenting him. Common sense would be The Simpsons writers and producers doing ANYTHING to make Apu's portrayal less insulting, and to maybe own up to it with some self-deprecating humor instead of shitting on critics. Your dark cartoon reviews are good, but accusing Hari Kondabolu of harming The Simpsons with "political correctness" (because yeah, of course you're using it like an insult) IS WAY OUT OF LINE.

      @AyBayCayDayEayFayGay believe me when I say that most Indians don't give a shit. Why? Because they're not pussies. This is all being blown out of proportion by soft bigots (like yourself) who think minorities are so mentally fragile that they can't handle jokes. Apu was a hardworking immigrant, business owner, a college graduate, and Springfield's most eligible bachelor according to many of the ladies in town. You focused on the accent and chose to be a bitch about it. The only thing you guys succeeded in was removing one of the few characters to represent Indians on tv. Aside from the accent, what is offensive about Apu? What part of his character offends Indian culture? Because if the accent is all you got, then we should talk about the Bumblebee man or Raj from Big Bang Theory. If your problem is the white voice actor, let's talk about Samurai Jack (Japanese man voiced by a black man), Izma (Peruvian character voiced by a black woman), or Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life (Australian character voiced by a Hispanic man). You're offended by a character that portrays Indians in a pretty damn positive way if you actually watch the show, and managed to whine until he was removed. Congratulations.

    Wow, way to kinda completely misrepresent Hari and his views. First of all, he *is* a comedian, he's been doing stand-up since 2006. He's been on HBO, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan, David Letterman and written for FX, so I'm not sure why you put 'comedian' in quotation marks? Secondly, he isn't just relaying his personal opinion. On "The Problem With Apu" he features multiple Indian comedians and actors who have all expressed similar concerns with the character and his portrayal. Particularly the fact that he's voiced by a white actor doing a stereotypical accent which - ya, that's hard to argue with. I don't think Matt Groening or Hank Azaria were being deliberately malicious, but that's kind of the insidious thing about racial biases; they can slip under the radar of even the most good-natured people. I think that's the big take away here. If you watch what he has to say, he actually makes some very good points, and regardless of how much you personally enjoy the character, it's worth at least hearing him out before jumping in defensively . Also, if the best rebuttal you can come up with is "common sense" then maybe your position really isn't that strong (or sensible) to begin with. Food for thought. Love your channel, but seeing you act condescendingly and over-simplifying the matter makes me loose some respect for you. Hope you'll come to a more reasoned conclusion and response in the future.

      @Jacy sorry I'm a little late to this comment, but I actually want to congratulate you on the fact of how true your comment was, and I'm not even being sarcastic! However, when I said leftists I was using it in ways the leftists use conservative and right wingers as if it's a bad thing. We all disagree and such, but I think we can all tell I was only using it as a way to jumble a large group of people in one, and no I couldn't have used democrats, because I think it would be rude of me to through them in with far left communists (that right there was a joke [you can laugh]) 😂 (used emoji in an irritating way). But in all seriousness I was acting immature, but so was whatshisface that I was originally debating with, but I'll just accept that you'll probably never acknowledge his "maturity" Happy smiles, Mister Gildory Ps if you couldn't tell with the last few comments I was acting overly stupid on purpose. Happy days, Mister Twinkle-Sparks, formerly known as Mister Meatloaf. Pps I truly hope you have a good day! :) Idk why I'm just in a good mood. Happy smiles, Mister Gildory Twinkle-Sparks. Edit: triggered? Hahaha, that's what that Indian is and Kruse. I'm wheezing, thank you for brightening up my day.

      If I was to bitch about every show that portrayed white characters in a stereotypical fashion, we would have no TV left! Tell me, @Ryan Kruse, what harm does it really do to portray a minority character as a stereotype on a show THAT IS COMPRISED SOLELY OF FUCKING STEREOTYPES?! I mean really, it would be biased NOT to portray Apu in the same manner as all the other characters! Political correctness is ruthlessly murdering comedy every day! Besides, Apu isn't portrayed moronically, or at least no more so than all the other moronic characters that populate a moronic show. Aziz Ansari is Indian, and he utilizes stereotypes to his advantage, incorporating them into his act. It's a sad day indeed when one butthurt twat can force an entire creative team to alter something that has benignly been in existence for decades!

      @Ryan Kruse idk. I thought he made a lot of good points. The videos 40 mins long. He doesn't just go over the same points the whole time. Apu is probably one of the most well adjusted characters in the whole show.

    He said himself he wasn't calling for the erasure of the character. He was trying to shine a spotlight on it to discuss a bigger issue in the lack of Asian voices (For performance and writing) in media. Like, it could've been fine is they just got Southeast Asian writers to write for the character.

      @Violent Rainbow They won't because The Simpsons writers are cowards who long stopped caring about quality, if it means taking the safe road. In fact, when the Simpsons was first made, no-one cared about the safe route, because the show was made to challenge ideals and show not all cartoons are for kids.

      They didn't write him off they just cut him out completely, he doesn't exist in the show anymore and they gave no explanation why he's just gone, no one will ever talk about him again, his entire family and the Kwik-E-Mart gone that's the saddest part they could have at least given him a story to explain why he's gone but nope not even that.
