The Simpsons Tribute to Charlie Hebdo

Filed under: Film — site admin @ 12:14 pm

A new episode of The Simpsons, broadcast last night on the US network Fox, contained an unexpected tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack on the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo.
The episode, Bart’s Best Friend, was written by the Hollywood director Judd Apatow 25 years ago, after just six episodes of the cartoon had aired.
After the tragic events of last week, the programme-makers decided to end Apatow’s episode with an image of baby Maggie against a red white and blue background, waving a flag which read “Je Suis Charlie”. The message has been adopted around the world, as a way of showing solidarity with the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
The Simpsons animators are the latest in a long line of cartoonists to respond to the tragedy through their artwork. Cartoons supporting the victims and reflecting the idea that the pen is mightier than the sword have been widely shared online since the attack last week.
