“The Simpsons” did it again.
A Twitter user on Tuesday shared a clip from the 1993 episode “Marge in Chains” that featured a highly contagious illness gripping Springfield and lethal stinging insects.
A writer for “The Simpsons” called out trolls in March for using the episode to spread racist propaganda. But here, Twitter users appear to be enjoying some grim humor, especially with murder hornets now adding to the collective dread over the coronavirus pandemic.
Check out the clip and reactions below. (And watch a longer clip below the tweets in which a citizen idiotically eats one of the bees to cure the flu. D’oh!)
