Biography

Retirement of Cleveland Brown

Mike Henry Retires

Mike Henry's retirement announcement on Twitter.

On June 26th, 2020, Mike Henry has announced on Twitter that he, as a Caucasian man, will be retiring his role as Cleveland Brown, amid today's PC society harboring a slew of SJWs, who claim that a white person voice acting a character of color is "digital blackface" and after 22 odd years of providing his voice, he will be quitting his job and passing the torch to a new voice actor of color. Cleveland's new voice actor has yet to be revealed.

Mike Henry as Cleveland is not the only one of his kind to do this, as this trend has been a snowball effect, which started in 2017, when comedian, Hari Kondabolu released a movie called "The Problem With Apu", which was mostly him complaining about the "racism" of The Simpson's token Indian character, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. One of his complaints was that Apu's voice actor was white, eventually leading to Hank Azaria resigning his role as Apu. This has also led to other white voice actors of adult animated shows doing the same thing, such as Jenny Slate as Missy from Big Mouth and Kristen Bell as a mixed-race girl from a shitty Apple TV+ show nobody cares about.

It is likely that Hank Azaria's retirement of Apu may have been partly responsible for this "snowball effect". However, it's very important to note that given the fact that Mike Henry, Jenny Slate, and Kristen Bell all resigned around the same time, (that time being not too long after the murder of George Floyd), it's not unlikely that this was also one of the main reasons for these specifically Caucasian actors and their sudden collective resignation of specifically African-American and Mulatto characters.

Trivia

  • On June 26th, 2020, Mike Henry publicly announced on Twitter that he'd be retiring his role of Cleveland Brown on the show, having caved into PC society and cancel culture, claiming that "characters of color should be voiced by people of color". It is currently unknown who his replacement will be.
    • It can be implied that this will also be the end of all of him voice acting for all his other non-white characters, such as Rallo Tubbs and Consuela De La Morrela and possibly his LGBT characters, such as Bruce, Jeffrey, Herbert the Pervert, and Jesse, given that as a straight guy, SJWs will probably be up his ass about that too. This means that the only fucking character he'll allowed to voice now is The Greased Up Deaf Guy. (Oh but wait, GUDG is deaf and Mike Henry is hearing. Guess that means it's time for him to pack his bags and quit his job altogether, huh? ... Fuck.)
