Aaron McGruder uses Facebook to speak directly to fans of The Boondocks about his departure. 

It's only fitting that Aaron McGruder, The Boondocks creator and executive producer, would take to Facebook to bid fans of his hit cartoon farewell, since it was here that they got a peek into what was brewing behind the scenes. "As the world now knows, The Boondocks will be returning for a fourth season, but I will not be returning with it," he wrote on the Facebook wall of his new project, Black Jesus.

Last week McGruder used the Jesus Facebook page to let fans know that The Boondocks page had been "hijacked" and that none of the posts about season 4, premiering April 21, were coming from him.
