High Profile Firing On ‘The Simpsons’ Leaves Fans Shaken

The Simpsons has been running for a mammoth 28 seasons, and throughout their run, many people have left the show. But one recent firing has left fans shocked and worried about the future of the show. 

After 24 seasons and 27 years with the show, Emmy award-winning composer Alf Clausen has been sacked by the show's producers, who reportedly wanted "a different kind of music."

Clausen took to Twitter to confirm the news. 

In a statement to Deadline, producers said:

"We tremendously value Alf Clausen's contributions to the Simpsons."
"He will continue to have an ongoing role in the show. This is the part where we would make a joke but neither Alf's work nor the music of the Simpsons is treated as anything but seriously by us." 

Clausen said that he received the news by email, after someone asked if he had been given the news over the phone. 

Fans showed their support on social media. 

Hopefully they can find someone as talented.
