        well to finish that Matt quote he said

        "However, I will just say that the actors were not hired to play specific characters. They were hired to do whatever characters we thought of. To me, the amazing thing is seeing all our brilliant actors who can do multiple voices, do multiple voices"

        Ergo he's fine with diversity but he highlights that versatility is the most important thing. it wasn't about race, he just doesn't see the prioritization of it as a necessarily bad thing.

        As far as the detriment to Dr. Hubert's character, he can frame it that way but at the end of the day he's just doing a Dr.Hubert impression. The voice having three degrees of separation from what race they're imitating doesn't matter. If you can mimic the voice being performed then the fact he was imitating a black man as a white man is a moot point.

            He's not doing a good impression though. It's just Kevin Michael Richardson doing his normal voice which is more of a Barry White Soul type. I find it more patronizing and racist that just because they got a black guy to do it, that makes it alright.

            I agree, the voice isn't fitting. I also don't necessarily agree with the practice of hiring because of some arbitrary principle. I don't necessarily condemn them for doing it though It's just something I wouldn't do.

          It's funny too because you also have famous black VAs like Keith David or Cree Summer who voice characters of every color and nobody gives a shit. Keith David doesn't even really do voices either he just has a damn good distinct natural speaking voice. Voice over work is where you're either blessed with a unique voice or you're truly skilled and able to do many different voices. Your race doesn't matter at all so long as you can do the voice.

          It does not affect him because he can still voice everything but Asians and Hispanics, he is safe for everything else so I understand the hypocrisy.

          That said why the frick does he have to be on twitter, it is not possible for actors to just be silent. It is apparent this is wrong.

          How is it "fair" to give someone prefered treatment just because his ethnicity is less present in a field? Leftism is just so fricking illogical.

    Nobody really complained about the black characters on The Simpsons because they weren't racialized stereotypes (all the side characters on the show are stereotypes but Apu was the closest to a racial stereotype). The producers just chose to cover their asses by recasting. Dr. Hibbert's joke is that he's too friendly and laughs while delivering bad news, Judge Snyder is just a stereotype of a stern judge, Carl is a stereotype of a very normal working class guy.

      The funniest thing about this whole scandal to me has been that Apu was a model citizen, he was probably legitimately the second best person in Springfield behind Flanders

      His positives are basically
      >brave, hard-working, polite, helpful
      what were even his negatives
      >sometimes allows all-devouring Homer to buy dodgy food

    Simpsons is never going to end. I guarantee that the main reason they gave into recasting voice actors is because the old ones are years away from death. These recasts give a politically correct socially acceptable way of getting newer actors in simpsons and normalizes recasts.
    We are so close to the main voice actors dying from old age and just as they are approaching death, all these huge AI advancements come in. They will absolutely use AI voices to keep it going. Simpsons will never die. And to add insult to injury when they switch to AI voices the show will get praise because the characters will sound like themselves again and not like an 80 year old woman doing a 10 year old boy voice
