Can't Get Enough Futurama

It was the Southerners!

Classic moment of "What the???" for me this morning:

Scouring through google's news service, I found a report titled "Angry Southerners Single Out Detractors" on a news site called "Uncle Sharky's US Press". In a list of southerner bashing samples in the media, it states:
FOX: All Cartoons on Fox
Many episodes of "The Simpsons", "The Family Guy", "Futurama" and "King of the Hill" make extensive use of Southern slurs. An overwhelming write-in campaign was successful in forcing Fox's cancellation of "The Family Guy" and "Futurama." Activists promise the same for the remaining shows.
Luckily, the site is a satire one. No clue how it found its way into the google news.
