The Simpsons is caught up in more controversy in South America, with Argentine politicians criticizing a recent episode that refers to former dictatorships, Variety reports.

In a recent episode, a character refers to “disappearances” under the government of Juan Peron: “When he disappeared you, you stayed disappeared.” Variety notes that “disappearances” of that nature were actually a feature of the post-Peron military dictatorship.

Earlier this year the government of Venezuela moved reruns of The Simpsons from a time bloc designated for “all ages.”
