For goodness sake!! There’s nothing wrong with Apu. Stop making everything ‘racist’ when its not. I’m of Indian origin & I liked Apu. Good to have Indians represented on Simpsons. @HankAzaria please retract your apology. You did a great job. Many Indians have Apu’s accent – fact.

Why the need to apologise @HankAzaria ? You  did a better #Apu than I can do as born Indian. It’s humour, comedy. There’s no malice or ill-intent. We miss you.

Replying to @harikondabolu and @HankAzaria. I hope you and the 10 Indians bothered by this are happy. Next time use your time for something that actually helps society.
