Hank Azaria deeply regrets enjoying racist Indian character on ‘The Simpsons’

Hollywood star Hank Azaria was ensnared in controversy for his racist position on The Simpsons of an Indian American character known as Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.

The actor now claims that he needs to apologize to each Indian in America for wronging them as a white actor together with his position of a personality of color.

Throughout a chat on Monday’s episode of Dax Shephard’s Armchair Skilled podcast, Azaria mentioned: “There were very good intentions on all of our parts. We tried to do a funny, thoughtful character.”

“And just because there were good intentions, it doesn’t mean there weren’t real negative consequences that I am accountable for,” he added.

Regarding Apu’s portrayal, he said he understood the negative consequences of his role when he visited his son’s school and met a 17-year-old Indian American kid who hadn’t watched the show but knew about the character.

“It is virtually a slur at this level. All he is aware of is that is how his individuals are considered and represented to many individuals on this nation nonetheless.”

“With tears in his eyes, he mentioned to me, and it was so candy the best way he put it. ‘Will you please inform the writers in Hollywood that what they do and what they give you issues in folks’s lives? Like, it has penalties?'”

“I apologize in my opinion in creating that and taking part in that. A part of me appears like I must go on to each single Indian particular person on this nation and personally apologize. And typically, I do.”
