The murder of George Floyd, the African American worker, at the hands of a white-colored police officer who arrested him and his violence a few days ago because of $ 20 forged, still occupies a large area between news and media sites, surpassing news of Corona's developments, due to the reactions that varied between Revolution against injustice and violence, theft and riots.
Simpson predicts again
But soon, the fans of the communication platforms began circulating some pictures as separate scenes from the famous series "The Simpsons", proving that its makers predicted the killing of George Floyd and even the protests and riots that followed, which is something strange that nobody denounced when he knew about the series from Its many and amazing details that its makers presented years ago were realized.
The most famous of which happened recently from the appearance of the Corona virus, the death of basketball player Kobe Bright on a helicopter, and before them the deal that took place between the "Walt Disney Company" and "Twenty First Century Fox" and even Trump's presidency. That is why it was easy for the audience to believe that the series foretold what is going on. Is this really what happened?

The first claim
The first image, which was reported by artistic sites as a prophecy of the work of Floyd’s death, appeared in Lisa Simpson while carrying a plaque reading “Justice for George”, while she stands next to a policeman kneeling on the neck of a black man, similar to the way Floyd died.
The image was attributed to episode 146 of the series, which came under the name (The Day Violence Died), and by research, it became clear that the episode "The Day of Violence Died" is the eighteenth episode of the seventh season of "The Simpsons", which was released in March 1996, and its content is not related to the killing of George Floyd .
He was followed by another claim that the image belongs to the thirteenth episode of the seventh season of the series, which is named (Justice for George Simpsons) and by returning to the number of the mentioned episode, it was found titled (Two Bad Neighbors), in which George W. Bush appeared the American President after he moved to the next Homer decides to take revenge on the president for his bad behavior towards his son, which means that there is no similarity between her and the current events as well.
Before Agence France-Presse declared that the image circulated on the Internet is nothing but a drawing belonging to the Italian artist and cartoon designer "Uri Pomo", who shared the photo with his fans via his Instagram account.
The artist has commented on his painting, that despite his habit of sharing his fans with colorful and cheerful graphics, he decided - this time - to use his broad masses to shed light on the issue of Floyd due to its importance, perhaps his painting increases awareness of it, also taking advantage of what Simpson represents with his fans and his overwhelming popularity with them.

Normally you're used to see colorful and cheerful drawings from me, but since i've got quite a good audience, i'd like to use it as much as i can in the right way when the situation requires it, and bring something good, and useful with my drawings, and you guys know it. Especially in this exact moment. With this piece i'd like you to think deeply, Taking the chance to bring The Simpsons as an example for the cause. The Simpsons has always been everyone's childhood, so the message will be clear and strong enough i suppose. Imagine you're sat with you daughter / son watching the Simpsons, and all of a sudden this scene happens in the show, as cruel as it has been, no jokes, no irony, nothing that the Simpsons normally has, and what it's loved for. Imagine that, how would you feel? … Think about that deeply, and give yourself an answer, no need to add anything else! 🙏🏻 • • • • • • #noracism #georgefloyd #justiceforgeorgefloyd #ripgeorgefloyd # georgefloyd🙏🏾 #noracismo #equality #humanrights #art #artist #simpsons #simpson #thesimpsons #illustration #illustrationartists #digitalart #digitalillusto # #icantbreathe #blacklivesmatter #blacklives # blacklivesmatter✊🏾 #blacklivesmatters #racism #colinkaepernick #riots

The second allegation
The second claim is attributed to an episode entitled (Marge in Chains), which was said to be the fourth episode of the fourth season, during which riots and looting that took place in the United States of America were predicted a few days ago. With a simple review, it became clear that the episode bearing that name is the twenty-first of the mentioned season, not the fourth, in which "Marge" was arrested for being accused of stealing from a store after she forgot to pay the price of a purchase.
The episode drew attention, especially after the audience re-watched it during the previous two days after its name was circulated in newspapers, which it deserved deservedly as its events contained a spread of a deadly virus and bees, in addition to price manipulation, injustice suffered by a minor, and finally a lot of riots.
Just watched Episode 21 of the 4th season of the Simpsons. (Marge in Chains) It has:
1. a virus
2. Killer bees
3. Price gouging
4. an injustice (minor in the episode)
5. a riot

The third claim
Another picture circulated on the communication platforms appeared as though the manufacturers had predicted, more than twenty years ago, of the Minneapolis police station fire. It is the picture that was shown during the sixth episode of the eleventh season of the Simpson series, called (Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder).
With some scrutiny, it can be said that the events of the episode included a police building fire already, but the difference is that the fire was not caused by any demonstrations, riots, or even a murder. Although the idea of the fire was similar in itself, however, this does not negate the fact that the allegations behind the two fires did not come identical.

Prophecy, coincidence or ugliness of reality?
Moreover, despite the similarity between the lived reality and the dozens of events that had been covered by the series "The Simpsons" many years ago, which makes the phenomenon worthy of standing up for it and contemplation even for a moment, there is a segment of the public that sees the work makers as just ordinary human beings, unable Whether to travel through time, or to predict anything in the future.
And they explained the similarity between the events that the world we live in has become a turbulent place enough, and cruel to the degree that made the most satirical nightmares that the public witnessed as young and mocked them as almost impossible, turning into reality!
Unpopular opinion: The Simpson's aren't “time travelers” or “predicting the future” our world is just becoming so messed up that the satirical events depicted in a cartoon are starting to mirror what's happening in our real life 🤷🏼♂️🤷🏼 ♂️
