The Problem with Apu
makes fun of everybody and has made fun of everybody over the past 28 years. The irritated Indians even said as much in the trailer. Hank Azaria does so many different voices for the show, I can't even find a definitive list. I counted 16 regular characters off the top of my head, let alone one shot characters.
Why single out Apu, then? Are they saying it's okay to make fun of people as long as you leave their group alone? Yeah, that's not how comedy works.

. Hank Azaria will be shamed by the left until he begs for forgiveness, or cuts someone a check. Apu will head back to Calcutta and Kwik-E-Mart will get a new manager. A cis-hetero Christian male, of course. Because they're the only group that's fair game for mockery.
Then, fast-forward a few months and Indians will be complaining about lack of representation in media. There is no satisfying a leftist. Which is the way they want it.
Here's an idea, guys: turn off shows you find offensive. If enough people do it, then change happens. Let the market decide, yeah?
