Venezuela bans The Simpsons!
Gahh!! How could they?? But according to news reports, the banning is official. “The Simpsons” has been banned by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez because the animated TV show is “unsuitable for children.” The long-running cartoon has been replaced after Chavez deemed it contained “messages that go against the whole education of boys, girls and adolescents.”
Elba Guillen, a spokesperson for Televen TV, the Venezuelan network that airs “The Simpsons” says, “It had to be taken off. The government considers it to be a series that isn’t appropriate for that time because it isn’t appropriate for children.” Oh-kayyy.. But if South Park is airing in Venezuela, I demand re-institution of “The Simpsons”! Hehe!
