The Simpsons‘ show runner Al Jean responded to backlash to Sunday’s episode, in which characters implied that criticism of Apu (Hank Azaria) as a racial stereotype was overblown.

Jean teased the response he expected to Sunday’s episode, entitled “No Good Read Goes Unpunished,” tweeting that evening “New Simpsons in five minutes. Twitter explosion in act three.”

As of Friday, after many takes and exhausting debates and interpretations of Apu, Jean weighed back in on Twitter.
