How The Simpsons Paid Tribute to Charlie Hebdo

1 minute read

As the Hollywood elite flashed “Je Suis Charlie” insignia on their tuxedos and ball gowns during the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Fox’s The Simpson’s also paid tribute to the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, the site of last week’s deadly terrorist attack in Paris.

Before the final commercial break of “Bart’s Best Friend,” an episode Judd Apatow wrote 24 years ago that didn’t air until Sunday, a silent animation flashed of Maggie standing in front of a red, white, and blue background while holding a tattered flag that reads “Je Suis Charlie.”

The image replicates French artist Eugène Delacroix‘s Liberty Leading the People.
