A quick recap: past year, Indian-American comedian Hari Kondabolu released the documentary The Problem With Apu, which addressed the stereotyped way South Asians are portrayed in American movies and TV.
While Apu has always been a part of The Simpsons recurring cast, South Park has finally chose to address the rival's issue head-on, throwing the FOX series under the bus in the most devastating way possible. As they watch him leave, one of the boys asks, "Where will he go?"
Randy replies: "He'll have to find a place that accepts racist, bad beings like him. There are still places out there who don't care about bigotry and hate".

Springfield, the community of "The Simpsons", where Mr. Hankey was welcomed by Apu, a character that's been condemned for its racist stereotyping.
