racial references in "The Simpsons: Tapped Out" and bad copywriting

The show makes plenty of racial and ethnic jokes; it's called comedy.

Now, he may try to slobber on your ****.

Heh. I've been around Scotsmen.


And the yellow skins game is just a play on words as golf does have skins games.



The typo is just a typo and I'll assume they'll fix it possibly at some point in the future.

    IF you are offended by a video game, you can always stop playing it.

    So this vocal comment by officer Lou should fit right in to the topic.
    "aside from my gun all that makes me feel like a man are my enormous genitals"

    I am anything but a simpsons expert... but I amsure I have seen several running jokes on tv where homer cant remember which one is lenny and which is carl....

    As a gay man myself, I could easily take great offence at both tsto and the tv show..... but I dont because it is hilarious and I laugh with themrather than feeling offended.

    Isnt humour always based on peoples differences?

    One of my favorite ice breaking jokes is how do you know when you have had a gay burglar? Your blu ray player is gone but the curtains are tidy and there is a quiche in the oven!

    If you think The Simpsons is bad dont watch Family Guy or Futurama lol

    Its seems like no matter what you do, any joke will offend someone

    I would recommend South Park. It's not even a little bit offensive. I promise.

    Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, etc nail on everybody. They never single out a single group (throughout the series). You are just picking out one specific reference. The skins one is the play on words, it's a golf reference.

    Based on your first point, at Universal studies Orland Florida They have a restaurant called Cletus's chicken shack. Are they also guilty of racism/ after all that's seen by hundreds of people a day.
    Also there's others you've missed off, Lou is te black guy with enormous genitals, that's a stereotype at least from people I know and from others. Not necessarily correct but still.
    And Eddie is the trigger happy violent stupid white guy cop/ cop in general stereotype, have you heard his sayings, to protect as swerve and also lets crack some civilian skulls or somethin.
    Everyone in this update gets it, so really take it with a grain of salt, they're jokes after all and if you're offended you'll have to stop playing.

    Two things

    We only know what Cletus sell not what he raises

    The charters mentioned are yellow skinned. (what would happen if he saw Sid the Science kid)

    Maybe if it was pork, watermelons, menthol tamacco, hair extensions, violent athletes, and grape soda it could be construed as offensive. As is its a non event.
