Harry Shearer, who has voiced multiple characters in "The Simpsons," criticized the show's decision to stop White actors from portraying non-White characters.
The decades-long cartoon series announced in June that it would no longer have "white actors voice non-white characters" amid the Black Lives Matter movement. Shearer, 76, lent his voice to Black character Dr. Julius Hibbert and still voices other roles on the animated FOX series.
Shearer explained why he doesn't necessarily agree with the show's decision while speaking to Times Radio.
