Woah! The voice of Apu reveals he’s willing to retire from the character
Hank Azaria is known for his extremely wide variety of voices that he offers on the Simpsons- including Moe, Chief Wiggum, Professor Frink, as well as the character that has been facing a lot of controversies recently – Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.
Apu’s characterization has been criticised because he appears to be a walking stereotype of those of South Asian descent.
Whilst the Simpsons’ show creators appear to be a little more apathetic to complaints of Apu’s character, Hank is more understanding of the situation at hand and acknowledges there are multiple issues that are inherent within that representation.
