Hari Kondabolu's "The Problem with Apu" gets release date at TruTV
So the trailer for "The Problem with Apu" went viral a few weeks ago on Facebook and we couldn't be more excited that there was someone creating an entire documentary about their hatred for Apu! Comedian Hari Kondabolu is known for his political commentary on racial stereotypes and we're so stoked that he decided to drag Apu! The Problem with Apu premieres on TruTV November 19, 10/9C
"Comedian Hari Kondabolu, the creator and star of this feature-length documentary, confronts his long standing “nemesis” Apu Nahasapeemapetilon – better known as the Indian convenience store owner on The Simpsons. Through this comedic cultural exposé, Kondabolu questions how this controversial caricature was created, burrowed its way into the hearts and minds of Americans and continues to exist – intact – twenty-eight years later."
