Harry Shearer Voice of Mr Burns, Ned Flanders Leaves 'The Simpsons'

WAS HE FIRED?

Variety Reports:

“The Simpsons” has apparently lost one of its most recognizable voices. Harry Shearer, who voices Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders and Principle (sic) Skinner, among other popular characters, is leaving the show after 26 seasons.

Shearer announced the news via twitter, but the slightly cryptic nature of the tweets hints at a less than harmonious parting:

This could be the beginning of a major issue for the series, which was renewed for a 27th and 28th season earlier this month, with such a large swathe of characters to his name, replacing him will be tough, and most likely badly received.
