‘W. Kamau Bell: Private School Negro’ Trailer: CNN Host’s Netflix Special Takes on Jeff Sessions and Berkeley — Exclusive
If you’re familiar with W. Kamau Bell’s work, it’s no surprise that his newest standup special is going to address the current presidential administration. But as he’s done in his other TV and podcast work, “Private School Negro” has its eyes on plenty of things happening outside of Washington, DC.

In this trailer for the new special, Bell spreads his focus across a number of different subjects, including some of the members of his own household. The preview below has jokes about the Attorney General, Berkeley, and even the cable network that employs him.

Bell has been the host of “United Shades of America” for three seasons on CNN, where he’s interviewed people from all across the political and ideological spectrum. Before “United Shades,” he led “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell” for a pair of seasons on FX and Fxx.

What Exactly Is the Problem with Apu Anyway?

Over the last year or more, The Simpsons – a landmark animated series and cross-generational cultural touchstone that now exists as the longest-running scripted television series ever – has found itself in the middle of a malingering controversy that is almost entirely of their making. American-Indian comic Hari Kondabolu made the insightful, funny and altogether innocuous documentary The Problem with Apu, wherein he, a lifelong Simpsons fan, and other Indian-Americans discussed the problematic presentation of the fan-favorite Quickie Mart attendant Apu Nahasapeemapetilon within the series and the very real, very negative impact that his presence in the larger popular culture

Hari Kondabolu Is Done Fighting ‘The Simpsons’ on Apu, But He Wants His Audience to Be Part of a Bigger Change

Hari Kondabolu Is Done Fighting ‘The Simpsons’ on Apu, But He Wants His Audience to Be Part of a Bigger Change
Hari Kondabolu has had a busy year. On top of being a working comic and amassing an impressive collection of podcast-hosting gigs, the ripples from his 2017 documentary “The Problem with Apu” helped spark a national conversation about representation in the entertainment industry.

But his standup special “Warn Your Relatives,” recorded in Seattle at the end of last year and newly available on Netflix, shows that there are plenty more stories to tell about how American culture is changing. Kondabolu told IndieWire that part of that process for prepping the special was taking a deeper look inward.

“It’s more personal and that’s something I’ve shied away from in the past. I tell you this is the way I feel, but how did I develop that and who is my family and how did I get here and what is my journey? That stuff I think I protected more,

Quantico Star Priyanka Chopra: I Was Teased Because of The Simpsons' Apu
Quantico star Priyanka Chopra has added her voice to the chorus of criticism surrounding The Simpsons‘ Apu, saying she was teased growing up because of the character’s stereotypical portrayal.

The Indian actress addressed the controversy in an interview on The View on Thursday, confessing that Apu “was the bane of my life growing up.” (Click to 4:40 on the video above for the portion about Apu.) Because Apu was the only portrayal of Indian people on TV at the time, Chopra — who moved to the U.S. at age 13 — faced teasing remarks from classmates: “Did I find gold in my rivers?

Priyanka Chopra: Apu From ‘The Simpsons’ Was ‘the Bane of My Life Growing Up’
Priyanka Chopra is adding her voice to the Apu controversy. The “Quantico” actress appeared on the May 3 episode of “The View” and referred to the controversial character from “The Simpsons” as “the bane of [her] life” while she was growing up in India. The Fox animated series has long faced backlash for its stereotypical portrayal of Springfield’s Kwik-e-Mart owner Apu.

“He was the bane of my life growing up, for sure,” Chopra said about the character. “A lot of people are talking about, ‘Oh, the show was so successful for 30 years, why are we suddenly waking up and being offended by a character that everyone loved?’”

“What happened from that time to now, the population of Indian Americans has tripled,” she continued. “So the voice is louder. Representation for people of color is louder. There’s the Internet and the media, where people can have a conversation.”

Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons, has brushed off criticism over the Apu character, saying that people love to fake taking offence.

‘The Simpsons’ Creator Brushes Off Apu Criticism: ‘People Love to Pretend They’re Offended’
The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening doesn’t have much to say in response to criticism of the show’s Indian character, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.

“I’m proud of what we do on the show,” Groening said in an interview with USA Today. “And I think it’s a time in our culture where people love to pretend they’re offended.”

The character has been criticized as a stereotypical portrayal of Indian immigrants, and because it is voiced by a white actor. The debate was reignited earlier this month when the show seemed to disregard the matter in a recent episode.

Set up as a response to comedian Hari Kondabolu’s documentary “The Problem with Apu,” the episode seemed to shrug at the entire debate.

“Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive, is now politically incorrect. What can you do?” one character asks in the episode, to which another responds, “Some things will be dealt with at a later date.”

For his part, Hank Azaria, who has voiced Apu since 1990, said he would be “perfectly happy and willing to step aside” if that would help alleviate some of the issues with the character.

“I think the most important thing is we have to listen to South Asian people, Indian people in this country when they talk about what they feel, how they think about this character, and what their American experience of it [is],” he said during an appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” last week.

Producer Adi Shankar Wants to Fix ‘The Simpsons’ Apu Problem, Launches Spec Script Contest to Crowdsource a Cure

Producer Adi Shankar Wants to Fix ‘The Simpsons’ Apu Problem, Launches Spec Script Contest to Crowdsource a Cure
“‘The Simpsons’ is sick and this contest is crowdsourcing the cure.” That’s the pitch for producer Adi Shankar’s spec script competition, which he is launching today in an effort to find a solution to what has become known as the show’s “Apu Problem.” The long-running character, a convenience store owner voiced by Hank Azaria, has become a controversial figure because many believe him to be an inaccurate and hurtful portrayal of Indian Americans.

“Apu is not even a stereotype, that’s what everyone is missing out on,” said Shankar, who was born in India, in an interview with IndieWire. “The stereotype of Indians is we’re doctors, we’re smart people, leaders in tech, the CEO of Microsoft, CEO of Google. We’re high achievers and we are that because to immigrate here from India there were so many restrictions literally only the best of the best

‘Archer: Danger Island’ Review: A Reminder of Better Days

Earlier this month, the current writers behind The Simpsons made a bad situation worse. Following a series of genuine, affecting criticisms of the show by comedian and former Totally Biased writer Hari Kondabolu, the creative forces behind the show responded to Kondabolu on an episode named “No Good Read Goes Unpunished.” Without subtlety, insight, empathy, or anything resembling humility, the writers called upon the show’s most progressive central character, Lisa, to deliver a bizarre message of unstirred indifference toward verbal and visual representation of races and …

Simpsons' Hank Azaria Disses Handling of Apu Controversy, Willing to Exit Role
Hank Azaria could soon be removing “Apu Nahasapeemapetilon” from his long list of The Simpsons voice credits — and he’d be fine with that.

The actor, who has voiced the Fox cartoon’s Kwik-e-Mart owner since 1990, appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Tuesday night, where he addressed the recent controversy over his Indian-American character.

In case you need a refresher, The Simpsons — which has long received criticism for its stereotypical portrayal of Apu, most prominently from comedian Hari Kondabolu and his documentary The Problem With Apu — alluded to the controversy in its April 8 episode. After Marge discovered that

Hank Azaria said Tuesday he is "willing to step aside" from voicing The Simpsons' Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. The animated character, a Kwik-e-Mart owner introduced in the 1990s, was recently the subject of Hari Kondabolu's TruTV documentary, The Problem With Apu, which argued Apu perpetuates a harmful stereotype of South Asian people. Azaria spoke to Stephen Colbert about his own concerns about it when he appeared on CBS' The Late Show.

Hank Azaria Is Willing to Stop Voicing Apu and Hopes ‘The Simpsons’ Hires South Asian Writers
Who needs the Kwik-e-Mart? Hank Azaria is ready to say goodbye to Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. The actor told “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday that he was “perfectly willing and happy to step aside, or help transition it into something new. I really hope that’s what ‘The Simpsons’ does. It not only makes sense, but it just feels like the right thing to do, to me.”

Azaria has voiced Apu since “The Simpsons” launched nearly three decades ago. But concerns over the stereotypical nature of the character have gained more attention after being the subject of the TruTV documentary “The Problem with Apu.” In that film, comedian Hari Kondabolu interviewed celebrities of South Asian descent about the negative impact that the character has had on them. Azaria has previously expressed concern that Apu might be deemed offensive or hurtful, and has said that the show will address the issue.

Three weeks after an episode of “The Simpsons” tried — and failed — to quell criticism of the character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Hank Azaria, who voices Apu on the animated series, says he is willing to step down from the role to make things right.

Appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to promote his IFC series “Brockmire,” Azaria said he’s “given this a lot of thought, and as I say my eyes have been opened. I think the most important thing is we have to listen to South Asian people, Indian people in this country when they talk about what they feel, how they think about this character, and what their American experience of it [is].”

Azaria added that “listening to voices means inclusion in the writer’s room. I really want to see Indians, South Asian writers in the room. Not in a token way, but genuinely informing whatever new direction this character may take. Including how it is voiced, or not voiced.”

“I’m perfectly happy and willing to step aside,” Azaria continued. “or help transition it into something new. I really hope that’s what ‘The Simpsons’ does, it not only makes sense, it just feels like the right thing to do to me.”

Criticism of the character intensified in 2017 with the release of “The Problem With Apu” a documentary by filmmaker Hari Kondabolu that studied the effects of negative stereotypes perpetuated by the character.

On Twitter, Kondabolu thanked Azaria for his remarks.
