Watch: Bill O’Reilly at war with “The Simpsons”

Pin it

Simpsons and Fox News.

It all started when The Simpsons made a slight jab at Fox News by rendering the cable-news channel's helicopter with the slogan, "Not Racist, But #1 With Racists." Sounds like typical, light-chuckle-worthy fare from the bazillion-years-old cartoon, right?

WRONG, thinks Fox News person Bill O'Reilly (don't you think that he thinks in all-caps?), who called The Simpsons "pinheads." For those unfamiliar with O'Reilly, he thinks that "pinhead" is the worst possible thing anybody could call anybody. Thus, the clip below is a certified diss.

If only The Simpsons were more nimble, there could be an awesome web-only response to fan the flames, or perhaps a one-off Smartline episode covering the feud. But for now, we'll have to settle with what little we've got — 138 seasons of The Simpsons on DVD or Blu-ray.
