As photos and videos of the unprecedented US Capitol violence trended on social media, several netizens claimed that such a situation may have already been predicted by The Simpsons. On Wednesday, thousands of angry supporters of outgoing US President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol and clashed with the police, which resulted in the death of at least four people including a woman.
Many users noted how the violence was predicted in season 7 of the series in episode 18 called ‘The Day the Violence Died’. Notably, the video shows characters storming the capitol holding guns, and even bombs. In the particular episode, Krusty the Clown presents ‘I’m an Amendment to Be’, depicting a Constitutional Amendment’s attempt to ban flag burning.

Social media giants, Twitter, Facebook Inc and Instagram temporarily locked the accounts of US President Donald Trump, as tech giants scrambled to crack down on his baseless claims about the US presidential elections amid riots. A dusk-to-dawn curfew has also been declared by Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, who asked for the assistance of the National Guard to help reestablish order in the nation’s capital.
Reacting to the riots, former President Barack Obama denounced the violence calling it as moment of great ‘dishonour and shame for our nation.’ He also accused the outgoing President Donald Trump of fuelling the violence by baselessly lying about the outcome of the elections.
Meanwhile, President-elect Biden said, ”At this hour, our democracy’s under unprecedented assault. Unlike anything, we’ve seen in modern times. An assault on the citadel of liberty, the Capitol itself. An assault on the people’s representatives and the Capitol Hill police, sworn to protect them. And the public servants who work at the heart of our Republic.”
