He should have just identified as black and they couldn’t touch him.

I’ve never understood this. You never see their face so they are easy to replace. And when they do have to replace a supposedly well-known voice actor, no one even knows unless they release it.

This person in the OP, they replaced him immediately.

How are they able to command such high salaries?

No one will read lines in a funny voice for $50,000 an episode?

They don’t even have to memorize it.

What race is Homer?

It’s a fricking cartoon. He’s not portraying MLK.

I have never to this day seen a combined two minutes of the program over all the years it has been on. Never interested me, and it certainly never showed any intellectual prowess.

690+ episodes at 21 mins each is nearly 15,000 minutes. You've watched less than 2 of those minutes (less than 0.01%) and you feel confident making that last statement?

I watched one episode early on, then made a vow I would watch it in reruns when it was cancelled

As God is my witness, I'm gonna outlast it

Yeah, I do. There are a lot of dog turds in this world. I have stepped in less than 0.01% of them, but I'm still pretty confident that I don't like dog turds on my shoes. I don't need to step in a bunch more of them to make a definitive statement.

As a male, I'm offended that the role of Bart Simpson has been voices by a woman for 34 or 5 years. Whenever the Tracy Ullman show came out.

So now ACTORS, who are paid to portray people they are not, are not allowed to portray characters unless they already closely resemble them?


He stepped down, he wasn’t fired.

ETA: looks like a thread full of people who don’t watch The Simpsons anymore, who don’t think it has been funny in years being upset about a change in voice actors. Why do y’all care?

re: The Simpsons go woke
This woke stuff is so stupid, but especially trying to apply it to a voice artist.
