Despite widespread skepticism, devoted fans of ‘The Simpsons’ adamantly argue for the legitimacy of these predictions.
Among the notable events purportedly foreshadowed by the show are the Titanic sub-tragedy, the onset of COVID-19, the Trump presidency, the 9/11 attack, and the NSA spying scandal.
