Culture: South Park offends some radical Muslims with a bear suit

  • We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality that will likely happen to them.
  • Abu Talhah al Amrikee of the site • Regarding “South Park” celebrating its 200th episode by depicting the prophet Mohammed behind a black bar, and later in a bear suit. Because that’s not controversial. Anyway, the site that posted this criticism compared Trey Parker and Matt Stone to director Theo van Gogh, who was murdered after he created a controversial film about the the treatment of women in radical Islam. They also posted the addresses to South Park Studios. Tonight should be fun in response to this controversy – “South Park” is famous for being able to respond to controversies like this quickly. source
