South America hates The Simpsons [The Simpsons]

God, what is South America’s problem with The Simpsons? First Venezuela bars our favourite family in favour of Baywatch, and now Argentina has serious problems with an upcoming episode. Per Variety:

In the 10th episode of season 19, which has already screened in the US, Carl Carlson tells Homer that former Argentine President Juan Peron was a dictator, adding “When he disappeared you, you stayed disappeared.”

“Of course, his wife was Madonna,” Lenny Leonard says in reference to the singer-actress’ role as Eva Peron in Evita.

Argentina takes umbrage against the heinous allegation that Madonna has anything to do with their country.

Next week: Uruguay finally objects to that U-R-Gay gag.
