Simpsons Capitol Riots

The Simpsons once again left everyone shocked as one of its episodes appears to have predicted US Capitol Riots in the past.

An episode of the popular animated series of the Simpsons ‘The Day The Violence Died’ is going viral on social media. The episode shows characters attacking the Capitol with bombs and guns after constitutional amendments. The scene has a surprising resemblance with the Capitol Riots that happened recently in the US.

Another episode from the cartoon in 1999 named Beyond Blunderdome’ showed a remake of Hollywood classic ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington’ in which actor Mel Gibson’s character wreaks havoc at Capitol Hill.

Even before that, The Simpsons predicted many scenes at the building.
