While reporting on the arrival of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Argentinian TV network, Cronica TV, announced the arrival with a picture of “Apu”. For some reason or another, this has caused claims of racism by viewers while others deem it as a joke. All this in the same year as the debut of The Problem with Apu documentary that had launched similar claims of “Apu” being a character with racist intent while most fans of The Simpsons seem to disagree.
The ironic thing about this bit. A week ago, Cronica had broadcast a guy killing himself on live television, but somehow Apu is equated to being racist and THAT’S what gets all the coverage?
