After 29 seasons, the Simpsons creators are rumoured to be killing off beloved character Apu Nahasampeemapetilon, as a documentary claimed the character is racist.

Comedian Hari Kondabolu's documentary The Problem With Apu has had mixed responses with audiences, with claims the depiction of Apu has racial implications. 

Hank Azaria, who depicts Apu in the series, spoke to TMZ about the claims.

 

I think the documentary made some really interesting points and gave us a lot to think about and we really are thinking about it.

Definitely anybody that was hurt or offended by it, or by any character or vocal performance, it’s really upsetting that it was offensive or hurtful to anybody.

He also said they were considering making changes to the character. 

I think it’s an important conversation worth having. We’re still thinking about it. It’s a lot to digest.

What do you think?
