The Simpsons will not be retiring its use of Homer Simpson strangling Bart.
Contrary to a previous talks, The Simpsons will not be retiring the act of Homer Simpson strangling Bart. According to Complex, James L. Brooks, the founder of Gracie Films, the company that produces the animated sitcom, says the gag is going nowhere.
Brooks talked to People about the episode which has generated a lot of online conversation, “McMansion and Wife.” Brooks told the outlet, “Don’t think for a second we’re changing anything.”
Brooks then produced an animated panel showing Homer strangling Bart who was holding a smartphone with a headline that read “Simpsons: No More Strangling” A word bubble above Homer’s head read “Why you little clickbaiting-!!” which can be taken as a response to the online conversation about the Oct 22 episode.

“I didn’t think about it. I was unaware how much relative advantage I had received in this country as a white kid from Queens. Just because there were good intentions it doesn’t mean there weren’t real negative consequences to the thing that I am accountable for.”
