i guess i never really thought about apu as being problematic because my family has an indian friend who loves apu and thinks azaria does a legitimately great acccent and when he comes over weíll often put on an apu episode. in retrospect i can see how it could be a bit problematic, but idk iím not really an authority on the subject

I don't have huge problems w/ Apu other than the voice, yeah. But there's some people out there who are pretty much ready to boycott this thing because they dare to say ANYTHING bad about Apu. I think it's silly to have such a strong reaction. Either that or I'm just really not a fan of people trying to shut this down so hard for existing.

I'm gonna let the guy say what he wants and decide for myself how I feel in the end, but I think people (obviously not you, jafar, I'm mostly talking about whiny babies on NHC) should at least be open to the suggestion that there might be something slightly problematic about Apu, which again I agree is mainly the voice. Apu has always been one of my favorites almost entirely because he was "the brown one" growing up that seemed most competent at what he was doing in the show compared to other characters of color.
