Racism controversy: has to leave the Apu on the Simpsons?

"some things you have to deal with at a later date," said Marge to her daughter, and Lisa adds: "If anything." The scene comes from the "Simpsons"-Episode "No Good Read Goes Unpunished", the successful US animation series responded to allegations that an Indian character was racist. Perhaps she was a hidden note, such as the channel Fox and the Team of "Simpsons"Creator Matt Groening with the "Apu-Problem" would deal with it. Namely, not at all.

This, at least, the Indian-born TV and movie producer Adi Shankar now claims in an Interview with US online magazine "IndieWire". "You will leave the Apu character in the complete case", the 33-Year-old from a plurality of sources from the "Simpsons" - environment is confirmed. "You will not make a big thing out of it or something like that, but you will leave him to go to the controversy out of the way," Shankar, produced, among other things, the Netflix Cartoon series "Castlevania" and on YouTube a satirical short film Portal "Bootleg Universe" operates.

The controversy, says Shankar, revolves around the Indian origin of the "Simpsons"character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, who runs the fictional Cartoon, the Springfield grocery store the Kwik-E Mart. Not only was it outrageous, that Apu from the white American actor, Hank Azaria is speaking, the stereotype depicted Indians reflecting, moreover, that "looks like America us: servile, cunning, and silly," lamented the Indian origin Comedian Hari Kondabolu, 2017, in its documentation, "The Problem With Apu," which attracted much attention. Apus representation felt for the past decades, hurtful and offensive to the Indian community in the USA, so Kondabolu. Since 1989, the current Show should strive to make Apus's character more complex, or let him die, he called for in his Film.

the Latter is going to happen now, apparently, wants to know Adi Shankar from two sources, the "work for the 'Simpsons'", and another Person, who work directly with series Mastermind Groening. On demand of "IndieWire" gave the producing US channel Fox only announced that Apu is occurring in a current Episode.

Why Shankar asked at all? Inspired by Kondabolus Film, the producer had launched a script contest to find the best "Simpsons"script to solve the "Apu-Problem". I won a TV layman, the doctor Vishaal book from Maryland. In his Story, which led to Shankar by Crowdsourcing to the appropriate script, develop, develop Apu from the kiosk owner to a successful business man in Springfield. This, in his eyes, "perfect script," wanted to tender Shankar Fox for use in the series, sees his efforts now, however, nipped in the Bud. Apu is not a step to be clear "forward or backward, it is just a massive step to the side", so most unsatisfactory.

According to "IndieWire" tarpaulin Shankar to produce paper, Apu-story as a short film in the "Simpsons"appearance just for his "Bootleg Universe"series. There Shankar has been more successful series and a film series to be re-interpreted, including James Bond, Marvel's warhorse "The Punisher" as well as, extremely successfully, a 14 minutes long Live-Action Film about the "Power Rangers" actors as Katee Sackhoff and James Van der Beek. For his guerrilla-Episode he hope to be able to Apus original speaker Hank Azaria win.
