The Simpsons will no longer use voices of white persons to interpret other ethnic groups

Producers of animated cartoon series The Simpsons announced that they will no longer use voices of white persons for characters of other ethnic groups.

The news came both in the wake of the Black Lives Matter campaign and also after earlier this year, actor Hank Azaria announced he will no longer interpret the character of Apu – an Indian American who was frequently at the centre of controversy due to alleged racial stereo-types.

Azaria had interpreted the role since 1990 and also used his voice for other Afro-American and Mexican-American characters.

In a statement on Fox News station, which broadcasts The Simpsons, it was not revealed whether major characters of different ethic groups will continue to form part of the schedule.
