The Simpsons Have Always Paid Tribute to Nelson Mandela In A Satirical Way!

Most people in the media savvy world know of the show The Simpsons. But did you know there is a quiet little tribute paid to Nelson Mandela through a character on the show?

Nelson Muntz's middle name on the show is Mandela! He is the school bully in the show and is has many relationships with others throughout the series.

There is no known reason as to why his middle name is Mandela, other than the fact that it flows well and is obviously satirical – even though many may not know about this middle name.

His middle name could be satirical due to the fact that he often terrorizes people, but occasionally shows humility and acts like a caring human being, even though that’s rare, unlike Nelson Mandela, who was seen to be a hero all the time, and a fighter against injustices.
