    The Fall Guy he's being cut from the the programme.

    The world is going bonkers! Is everyone losing their sense of humour? If so, absolutely nobody should ever be allowed to voice Scottish, Irish or English accents in a comedic fashion - it should be socially condemned.

    A real life APU (NAVID in "Still Game") will be next to get the chop.

    I fear for the sanity of the world we live in.

    Pretending to take offense on behalf of others is how boring people amuse themselves now. It's all about virtue signalling and earning social capital.

    People who cave in to these bullies need to know that it will cost them more to capitulate than to stand firm. 'Go woke go broke' Gillette is a classic example.

    Apu is represented as a family man who works all the time to maintain a valuable community service. Oh, and he loves america! What's wrong with that picture???

    ^^^ sigh ...

    Ok, a couple of things: first, it could be argued that Hank Azaria isn't white because he's a dark-complexioned Jew.

    Second, Apu isn't making mockery of Indian people, he's just a joke. As are all Simpsons characters - Fat Tony is a joke but that character isn't mocking all Italians or Italian-Americans, etc.

    Third, Hank doesn't do brown face at all. He just voices a character ... a fictional character.

    Talking about being politically, socially and morally incorrect-insensitive, forget Simpsons, try Family Guy. I can't stomach for than 5 seconds of his nonsense.

    Don Rickles would have had no job in today's world. People take themselves too seriously!

    Here's YouTube vid about Apu and an Indian-American comic who wanted him cancelled.

    It's a commentary by a youtuber called 'jlongbone'.

    Enjoy ...
