Simpsons Tribute To Charlie Hebdo

Episodes of the Simpsons are made well in advance of the episode being shown on FOX, but even so they added a tribute to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo tragedy on Paris on Sundays show. The simple clip above was added at the end of the episode showing the youngest child Maggie holding a banner with Je Suis Charlie with the French flag colors in the background. The simple tribute is very reminiscent of the French Revolution as well as the famous Les Miserable show posters. This isn’t the first time the long running Simpsons has added something to a finished episode to reference a current event and is a fitting tribute to the fellow cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo.
