Not too long ago, South-Asian American comedian Hari Kondabolu made a documentary called "The Problem with Apu", covering the impact of the show and how he feels certain people were affected by it, one of which being actor, Kal Penn, who openly admits to hating The Simpsons because of it.
He even recently did an interview with Trevor Noah talking about it.
The Simpsons then made a response to the documentary, as well as anyone with similar views on the character in it's most recent episode, the video I can only find on Twitter (which thankfully is in the link). Some called it a toothless response, others such as right wing figures (like Dave Rubin) defended it, despite the show's generally left leaning themes.
Me personally? Whole controversy is stupid. I see what Hari is going for, but this might be a bit late to the party. As for Matt Groening and co, it was a terrible response and may as well further justify the calls for the death of the show (which even the shows own fanbase can't decide whether they want it or not). It also feels like it's The Simpsons trying to be like it's edgier rivals, Family Guy and South Park (though it's not the first time, see "Mypods and Boomsticks").
What say you?
