DM

Hank Azaria has apologised for voicing the Indian character Apu on The Simpsons. Hank – who’s white – had played the convenience store owner since 1990. He first announced he was stepping down from voicing Apu in January 2020. Speaking on Dax Shepherd’s Armchair Expert podcast, the actor said: “Part of me feels like I need to go around to every single Indian person in this country and personally apologise.” The character has been criticised for years for reinforcing racial stereotypes.
