'The Simpsons' to Recast Characters of Color, 'Family Guy' Actor Stops Voicing Black Role
In a big shift, the producers of The Simpsons say they'll no longer use white actors to play characters of color on the long-running animated series. Additionally, one of the principal voice actors on Family Guy says he'll stop playing the show's main Black character.

"Moving forward, The Simpsons will no longer have White actors voice non-White characters," the show said in a statement Friday.

Mike Henry, who has been with Family Guy since its beginnings, wrote on Twitter Friday that he'll stop voicing Cleveland Brown on the show.

Just how far are whites going to bend over backwards for blacks? This is absolutely pathetic.

Neither show has been good in about 13 years. They should just stop.

Just when you think it can't get even stupider. What's next? If you have a fictional character with a drug addiction will they only cast drug addicts in the role? If the scene calls for a psycho, will they only cast psychos in the role? What about those "diverse" doctor shows? Will all those diverse characters have to actually BE doctors?
I got bored with the Simpsons a long time ago, it stopped being fun. I was sad when my favorite character Apu got cancelled for reasons. A guy I work with, the son of Indian immigrants used to wear an Apu t-shirt to work. It never occurred to him that he should be offended by a cartoon character that made him laugh and have some fun, until some purple haired Starbucks defender of all things non white enlightened him. He still wears his Apu t-shirt.

Guess they will have to find a bunch of yellow people to do all of the voices then.

Yellow lives matter. Especially the ones with blue hair.
