Problem with Apu (The)
This documentary addresses Apu, an Indian American convenience store owner from the popular television series The Simpsons, whose stereotype-heavy depiction led to controversy. Notable figures from the Asian American community share their thoughts, raising questions about the lack of diversity in the entertainment industry and how racial minorities are viewed in America. That Hank Azaria (the white voice actor of Apu) refused to have a good-faith discussion about the film's complaints really exemplifies the problem.
