Is The Simpsons racist? No question about it. But just how racist is the long-running animated show?
In his earth-shaking documentary, “The Problem with Apu,” activist Hari Kondabolu exposed the racism of The Simpsons, by shining a light on fictional Springfield’s adored East Asian owner of the Kwik-E-Mart, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.
Now, inspired by the unmatched bravery of Kondabolu—a man in his 30’s who is angry at a cartoon—We the Internet TV’s Lou Perez is risking everything to take on his animated nemesis, perhaps the most beloved and racially grotesque Simpsons character of all: Bumblebee Man.
In Lou’s own words: “While most people see a hilarious wacky character, I see a grotesque caricature. Bumblebee Man is a direct insult to my people: Hispanics who dress like bumblebees.”
On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hank Azaria apologized for the pain he caused by voicing Apu. Isn’t it time for him to apologize for the stings he’s caused the proud Hispanics-who-dress-like-bumblebees community?
Here is a sneak-peak of the forthcoming documentary that will set the world on fire with justice, “The Problem with Bumblebee Man.”
