Morrissey or his people not happy about The Simpsons portrayal of himThis week’s episode of The Simpsons saw an episode that delivered a parody of the Smiths whose former frontman or his people were none too pleased and issued this statement on his Facebook page.

 

 

‘…Surprising what a “turn for the worst” the writing for The Simpson’s tv show has taken in recent years. Sadly, The Simpson’s show started out creating great insight into the modern cultural experience, but has since degenerated to trying to capitalize on cheap controversy and expounding on vicious rumors.

Poking fun at subjects is one thing. Other shows like SNL still do a great job at finding ways to inspire great satire. But when a show stoops so low to use harshly hateful tactics like showing the Morrissey character with his belly hanging out of his shirt (when he has never looked like that at any point in his career) makes you wonder who the real hurtful, racist group is here.

 

Even worse – calling the Morrissey character out for being a racist, without pointing out any specific instances, offers nothing. It only serves to insult the artist. They should take that mirror and hold it up to themselves.Simpson’s actor Hank Azaria’s recent apology to the whole country of India for his role in upholding “structural racism” says it all. Unlike the character in the Simpson’s “Panic” episode…….Morrissey has never made a “cash grab”, hasn’t sued any people for their attacks, has never stopped performing great shows, and is still a serious vegan and strong supporter for animal rights.

By suggesting all of the above in this episode…the Simpson’s hypocritical approach to their storyline says it all. Truly they are the only ones who have stopped creating, and have instead turned unapologetically hurtful and racist. Not surprising…… that The Simpsons viewership ratings have gone down so badly over recent years…”

  1. why and how is this even a story, guys? Come on, stick to doing what you do best and not cheap tabloidal non storys like this.

  3. “calling the Morrissey character out for being a racist, without pointing out any specific instances”

    OK then, how about when this “Morrissey character” suggested that Chinese people might be a “subspecies”. The response is so humourless and thin skinned that I wonder if the “manager” is actually Morrissey himself.

  4. I cannot believe The Simpsons have accused Mozzer of being a meat-eater and a racist.

    I’m quite sure he doesn’t eat meat….

  5. Where do the Simpsons get off saying any of this though? It’s been diabolically bad for well over 10 years now and yeah.. the Apu thing wasn’t that long ago really.. so what they’re just aligning themselves with woke culture because they got in trouble and how they’re pointing the finger? I think The Simpsons did a good just of making a fool out of themselves as much as Morrissey. I wish they’d just let it die it’s so shit now.
