‘The Simpsons’ Will ‘No Longer Have White Actors Voice Non-White Characters
Variety ^ | June 26th, 2020 | David Buchan

Posted on 06/26/2020 5:29:37 PM PDT by LouieFisk

“The Simpsons” won’t have any repeats of Hank Azaria voicing Apu.

The producers behind the show issued a statement Friday saying that from now on, its characters of color will be voiced by actors of color only.

“Moving forward, ‘The Simpsons’ will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters,” the statement read.

News of the decision comes less than an hour after Mike Henry announced he will no longer voice the character of Cleveland Brown on fellow Fox animated comedy “Family Guy.”

I might care if the show hadn't already jumped the shark by the mid-1990s. Have only very rarely seen it since then.

Does this mean there will no longer be productions of “Hamilton!”?

Then homos shouldn’t be allowed to play straight characters.

Cartoons are for children.

Yeah, the first 7-8 seasons are the only ones that were really any good. Just cancel the show already.

The times are a-changin...

because nothing makes comedy funnier than enforcing retarded pc mandates

i predict this will not be enough at all

i predict that they will stop selling all prior versions of the shows

i predict they will re-release them only when non-white voice actors are brought in to replace the existing thirty+ years of voices to the minority characters

mark it, it will occur

so these original copies will be worth a lot, down the road

Yeah, I think most watchers figure it went to hell in a handbag around season 6.

Heimdall, the Nordic God, is played by a Brit Negro in Thor.

Once they did The Simpsons Movie (which was great) it pretty much tanked.

I grew up on Looney Tunes, Merry Melodies, and Tex Avery cartoons, and they actually made me into a better person because they would showcase a forgotten novel or piece of Americana.

And I still enjoy cartoons as a 47-year old male.

Does this mean they will recast Bart Simpson, who is voiced by Nancy Cartwright?

What an amazing advance for racial equality! The voices of people whom you do not see will be those of black people only! The Simpsons is now leading us to racial utopia!

According to the census, the majority of children are “non-white”.

Well, this, combined with Oregon and Oregon State no longer calling their sportsball rivalry a “civil war” will probably solve “racisms” for all eternity. Thank God we have these people looking out for us.

I’ve never watched it, so I don’t care what PC crap they do.
