Official Facebook Peter Katsis: Simpsons Responses (April 19, 2021)



"Surprising what a “turn for the worst" the writing for The Simpson’s tv show has taken in recent years.

Sadly, The Simpson’s show started out creating great insight into the modern cultural experience, but has since degenerated to trying to capitalize on cheap controversy and expounding on vicious rumors.

Poking fun at subjects is one thing. Other shows like SNL still do a great job at finding ways to inspire great satire.

But when a show stoops so low to use harshly hateful tactics like showing the Morrissey character with his belly hanging out of his shirt (when he has never looked like that at any point in his career) makes you wonder who the real hurtful, racist group is here.

Even worse - calling the Morrissey character out for being a racist, without pointing out any specific instances, offers nothing. It only serves to insult the artist.

They should take that mirror and hold it up to themselves.

Simpson’s actor Hank Azaria's recent apology to the whole country of India for his role in upholding "structural racism” says it all.

Unlike the character in the Simpson’s “Panic” episode…….

Morrissey has never made a “cash grab”, hasn’t sued any people for their attacks, has never stopped performing great shows, and is still a serious vegan and strong supporter for animal rights.

By suggesting all of the above in this episode…the Simpson’s hypocritical approach to their storyline says it all.

Truly they are the only ones who have stopped creating, and have instead turned unapologetically hurtful and racist.

Not surprising…... that The Simpsons viewership ratings have gone down so badly over recent years."



As guessed - author is Peter Katsis.

Update - a second post from Peter Katsis:


More shoddy journalism by COS and Pitchfork today.

They attributed my quote (on The Simpson’s poor writing) to Morrissey, while using false facts to try and support more meaningless stories

More former journalistic press outlets now turning to the same tactics The Simpson’s used to gain attention.

Other real papers, like Rolling Stone, called to ask who wrote the comment.

Someone should tell COS and Pitchfork that is what is called “journalism".

In the meantime nobody has even mentioned the horrible false portrayal of Morrissey used by The Simpsons team. - Peter Katsis



Update - third post. Link posted by Uncleskinny:


Thinking more today on this Simpson’s bullshit…..

Why did Cumberbatch even agree to take this voice-over gig playing the Morrissey character?

Could he be that hard up for cash that he would agree to bad rap another artist that harshly?

Clearly he would have read the outline or script before he took the gig.

Could he actually be as big an asshole as the people on The Simpson’s writing team? and the FOX team?

Apparently so. Maybe he should speak up and tell his side of this.

Does he even have enough balls to do that? - PK

Oh my! Hahahahah! I've just read that. What a pathetic missive. Supposing they hadn't portrayed what they had done, they'd be praising the show to the rafters for keeping him in the spotlight. Instead we get a railing against the freedom to be racist, and a gilt-edged example of shooting the messenger, not the message ("The Simpsons viewership ratings have gone down so badly over recent years."). I wonder if he can think of anyone else whose ratings have gone down so badly over the years?

Also - "Morrissey...hasn’t sued any people for their attacks" - yes he has - has he forgotten when he sued The Word?

How far he has fallen. He deserves everything he gets.

Morrissey Is Pissed Off The Simpsons Played Him As A Depressed Fat Racist

"Morrissey is pissed off at The Simpsons for portraying him as a racist with a fat gut."


The above FB post as an article - zero added really apart from the less than salubrious title / header.

Well that all turned out well, didn't it? I suppose he should feel fortunate that it wasn't Family Guy having a go. They are much less kind.

I do like this comment on FB...

"Also for the “cash grab” didn’t you try to sell other peoples records with your signature?! FOH. Clown shoes. "

Nearly every aspect of this retort is factually wrong in an attempt to re-write a shameful history.

Well tough shit, people don't forget. Own your mistakes. Admit you said those things and you meant them.

Who else is to blame for saying the sings he said? Someone else? None of this would have happened if he hadn't have said those things. So ultimately, who is to blame?

Morrissey-solo be like:
Yesterday: "Oh The Simpsons is my favourite show, it's always been great, I'm really looking forward to this episode."
Today: "I've always hated The Simpsons, it's always been crap and has got worse in recent years and they are all racists."

Curious to some examples where The Simpsons have been this hateful & hurtful & nasty to other singers/bands? I can’t think of any...and I watched the show every week for about the first 15 years...less nowadays but still quite a bit in the last 15 years.

They were never low blow hitters...they were never this bend the truth to tell an agenda driven narrative like the current news media does daily. Just thinking about Hullabalooza: Billy Corgan-Smashing Pumpkins...Flaming Moe: Aerosmith-Steven Tyler.

Wow...imagine if these writers weren’t “fans” of Morrissey.

I guess it’s par for the course that Morrissey would be their first endeavor into being unabashed a-holes.

Matt Selman, The Simpson’s executive producer is now liking tweets about the episodes including ones that say “That Morrissey character is a big racist”.

Its obvious that The Simpsons had an agenda. They’re distracting from their own racism and trying to move away from it by mocking what they deem as a ‘fat famous racist’ .

The Simpsons trying to be; woke, get some social media coverage and save their own backs.
