The Simpsons Finally Addresses Apu Controversy — Leaving Some Even MORE Offended! What Do YOU Think??

The Simpsons is in a tough spot.

When they first started 29 years ago, no one in the media batted an eye about the character of Apu Nahasapeemapetilon — an Indian immigrant who ran the local Kwik-E-Mart — except to applaud Hank Azaria for doing like 50 distinct voices (he's won three Emmys for his work).

But over the years, the criticism that he was a hurtful stereotype has gotten louder — something the show combatted by developing the character into one of the most well-rounded residents of Springfield.

Over the past few years the argument has gained more traction, culminating in a documentary by comedian Hari Kondabolu, who interviewed fellow South Asian performers about the impact of Apu on public and industry perception of them.

Well, The Simpsons finally addressed the argument in their season premiere — in a way that was NOT satisfactory to Kondabolu and many others!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayGIFsLGBT

Back in September, we learned that The Simpsons would finally be letting Waylon Smithers (voiced by Harry Shearer), Mr. Burns trusty right-hand man, out of the closet sometime this season.

Well Sunday night, we FINALLY got the episode that addressed Smithers' love life!

In The Burns Cage, Homer, Lenny, & Carl hear their Springfield Power Plant boss's assistant singing to himself about his love of Mr. Burns — so they decide to try to get him laid, mostly to make him a more tolerable coworker!

It's a classic sitcom premise — the fact Smithers is gay isn't made shocking at all! We guess The Simpsons know what year it is! Ha!

After some failed attempts, Homer takes to Grindr to invite all of Springfield's gay citizens to a big party at the Simpsons' home, just for Smithers. Of course this was a great opportunity for a George Takei cameo as he asked suitors if:
