The Simpsons killed off a 'lead character' last night, but Twitter was underwhelmed


SIMPSONS FANS HELD their breath last night as they tuned into the 26th season premiere to wave goodbye to the ‘major character’ executive producer Al Jean promised would be killed off the long-running show.

They were left less than impressed when the shock death was found to be that of… Krusty the Clown’s father  Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky.


It’s not that he won’t be missed… it’s just all very underwhelming…

Some people were genuinely upset though. A bit too much

Not to worry, Al Jean admitted that it’s likely the Rabbi will appear in future episodes as Krusty’s dream. Well, that was all pretty pointless.
