The Problem with Apu's Hari Kondabolu wondered, "Did @SouthPark just side with me? WHAT IS HAPPENING?" after last night's South Park seemed to take a shot at The Simpsons' portrayal of Apu. But The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean saw things differently. "it's actually in favor of us saying people are too critical," says Jean. "Hari Kondabolu tweeted he thought they agreed with him but pulled the comments showing he was wrong. All season the show has had a #cancelsouthpark hashtag so my response (which I tweeted) is: #pleasedontcancelsouthpark." ALSO: South Park was indeed trolling people who would call on The Simpsons to be canceled.
