The Simpsons took a refreshingly sensible approach, mocking feminism in season 30 episode 18 titled, “Bart vs. Itchy & Scratchy” which aired on Sunday night.
The Simpsons took aim at President Donald Trump in a subtle manner in season 30 episode 11, titled “Mad About the Toy” which aired on Sunday night.
The Simpsons repeated the popular left-wing narrative of rampant racism in the United States in season 30, episode nine, titled “Daddicus Finch,” which aired on Sunday night.
Adult cartoons may be known for poking fun at just about anyone and anything, and it may be good to keep a sense of humor and not take them too seriously, but still, there are times when their lampooning can be a bit much. Case in point, Sunday’s episode of Fox’s The Simpsons, “Flanders’ Ladder,” which labeled Christianity a “dopey religion” and fetishized the crucifix.
Being offended can only get one so far. Just look at the liberal media.
After many news outlets criticized The Simpsons for the character of Apu, for being an “Indian stereotype,” the show’s creator, Matt Groening, finally addressed the controversy. But not quite the way the left wanted him to.
In the April 29 episode of Fox’s The Simpsons, “Forgive and Regret,” the Legends of Demolition Derby comes to Springfield and Homer’s old car is entered. His car makes it to the final round and the challenging car is called "Car-rak Obama’s Affordable Healthcare Mobile," which, the announcer adds, “You can’t kill no matter how hard you try.” That would be funnier if it weren’t so true about the struggles against Obamacare.
“Thank you, don’t come again.” Hank Azaria, the voice behind many classic Simpsons characters, has decided that now may be the time to move on from his time playing everyone’s favorite Kwik-E-Mart owner, Apu.
ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday slammed The Simpsons, fretting about the “racist,” “stereotypical” portrayal of the character Apu. The show joined the chorus of liberal outlets unhappy with how the veteran comedy dealt with complaints about the Indian American Apu.
The New York Times takes cartoons very seriously, criticizing the long-running Fox comedy The Simpsons for its humorous stereotyping of Indian convenience-store owner Apu. Sopan Deb has the latest on the gripping saga of a humorless comedian who made a documentary, “The Problem With Apu,” attacking The Simpsons for its purportedly racist stereotyping. Never mind that the Simpsons is full of stereotypes of all kinds -- and is a cartoon.
I have to give it to The Simpsons on this one. They know when something is clearly past its time. This week’s episode of the Fox sitcom tackles two things that just didn’t die fast enough: the Pokémon Go fad and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
In a move uncommon for FOX, Sunday night’s episode of The Simpsons, “Caper Chase,” ridiculed the “highly-entitled wusses” that attend America’s universities. When Mr. Burns tries to endow a Department of Nuclear Plant Management at his alma mater, Yale University, he comes face to face with the horror that is today’s college campus: easily offended, politically correct students overdosed with a hatred for micro-aggressions and cultural appropriation with a need for safe spaces.
It’s no secret that the Millennial "snowflake" generation is known for always needing support and praise, even if it's not deserved. This mentality of celebrating mediocrity is hilariously spoofed by FOX’s The Simpsons.
