‘The Simpsons’ Officially Ends Having White Actors To Voice Characters Of Color

According to what officially announced, the legendary series, ‘The Simpsons,’ which is the longest-running scripted show on the United States TV, no longer have white actors to voice non-white characters.

On last Friday, the producers made the following short statement to inform the public:

“Moving forward, ‘The Simpsons’ will no longer have white actors voice nonwhite characters.”

Before this announcement, actor Hank Azaria, who has voiced Indian convenience store character ‘Apu‘, had declared earlier that he would no longer continue to play because he thinks that the character doesn’t reflect a proper portrayal of an Indian American.

As known, Azaria has also voiced black police officer ‘Lou‘ and the Mexican American ‘Bumblebee Man‘ in the series before.

The other white actors, who voiced characters of color in other animated series such as, Mike Henry and Kristen Bell, also stated that they would not continue to play.

However, this move, which triggered with ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, was perceived as a delayed action.
