A producer for 'The Simpsons' said Trump's request to voice a character was denied


President Donald Trump was rejected from voicing a character in the popular series "The Simpsons," an executive producer for the show told the crowd during a panel at Comic-Con on Saturday.

A fan had asked the panel if the show had ever turned down a celebrities' request to be on it, to which Al Jean replied, "Let's just say he's the president of the United States," the Wrap reported.

The panel also discussed the episode where a glimpse into the future shows Trump as president, and executive producer Mall Selman joked the show does not always predict "terrible" events, the Wrap reported.

The show's creator Matt Groening was also at Comic-Con, and after telling the crowd that 21st Century Fox had asked the animated series to go easy on Fox News, he started leading people in chanting "Lock him up," the Huffington Post reported.

A former writer for the show chimed in as well over the weekend on Twitter. Bill Oakley tweeted out on Sunday, "I continue to thank God that Donald Trump was never invited to do a voice on The Simpsons even during the brief period when he was popular."
