The original Squidward Tentacles a guy whose had no breaks in life and faced with nothing but misery whose had to struggle for everything in life only to have very little to show for it and is outraged that someone like Homer Simpson who does the bare minimal to get through life and has had way more success then him which drives him insane as he tries to prove to everyone that that's not how life is suppose to work as people are suppose to be rewarded for their hard work and people who do very little shouldn't be given so much as he tries to prove to everyone how much of an idiot Homer is only for everyone to continue overlook Homer's stupidity and praise him which drives Frank over the edge as he has a total meltdown and eventually kills him self.
Aside from being shot at on a number of occasions in recent years Apu as a character has been seen as controversial by some following the documentary "The Problem with Apu" and as a result the shows creators took the easy way out and simply removed him from the show.
