Marge Simpson Refuse Mocking Kamala Harris
Marge Simpson responded to a tweet uploaded by a senior advisor to president Donald Trump in which she mocks vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, comparing her voice that of “The Simpsons” character.
In a video uploaded to Twitter, Marge (voiced by Julie Kavner) said that she feels disrespected by Jenna Ellis’ comment, which she interpreted as an insult to both herself and to Harris.
“I was going to say I’m pissed off, but I’m afraid they’d bleep it,” the character says from off screen as the video ends.
Marge’s character has three children: Bart, Lisa and Maggie. She said in the video that she aims to raise her children with higher behavioral standards than those demonstrated by Ellis on social media.
“I teach my children not to name-call, Jenna,” she says in the short clip.
The tweet about Harris’ voice came Aug. 12, the day after her selection as Joe Biden’s running partner. Around the same time, commentary began to circulate that questioned both her legitimacy as a Black woman and her birth location.
