Me too. I'm so old that we didn't even have Apu to grow up with, but I recognize the damage the character has done to images of South Asians nonetheless. It might have been less impactful if there were other, more real representations of South Asians, but that is a far more recent, and still pretty pathetic. Grateful to Hari for doing this work.

I am grateful to Hari too. I bet there will be a lot of young people out there who benefit from his documentary.


I love in the first trailer when Hari says: "If I heard Hank Azaria doing Apu's voice at a party I would kick the s... out of him. Or I'd imagine kicking the s... out of him." Hilarious.
