'The Simpsons' Voice Actor Hank Azaria Responds to Hari Kondabolu's 'The Problem with Apu'
Published Dec 04, 2017Last month, Hari Kondabolu acknowledged The Problem with Apu in a new Simpsons documentary that accuses the show of racial insensitivity. A big part of the documentary involved Kondabolu trying (and failing) to get voice actor Hank Azaria to sit down for an interview. Now, Azaria has responded to the doc.
Speaking with TMZ, Azaria said he watched The Problem with Apu and was left with lots to think about.
"It's really upsetting that [Apu] was offensive or hurtful to anybody," Azaria said.
He added that the documentary raised "some really interesting points" and offered "a lot for The Simpsons to think about" and "a lot to digest."
