    Default South Park Banned In China After Latest Episode

    South Park Creators Comment on Being Banned in China



    South Park is no stranger to controversy and that's certainly the case just two episodes into season 23. The Comedy Central series' episode "Band in China" ended up being banned in China, scrubbed from its internet and streaming sites. Now, series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are responding to the ban with a statement that is perfectly on brand for South Park, using their statement to take a jab not only at the censorship, but at the NBA for their recent apology to China as well.


    In the statement, Parker and Stone invoked the NBA, taking shots at the organization's recent attempt to smooth things over with China after general manager of the NBA's Houston Rockets Daryl Morey expressed support for the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

    "Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts," the statement reads. "We too love money more than freedom and democracy. Xi doens't look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10 p.m. Long live the great Communist Party of China. May the autumn's sorghum harvest be bountiful. We good now China?"


    What started the situation was, the "Band in China" episode of South Park which saw Randy Marsh -- who currently owns Tegrity Farms, a marijuana business -- decide to open up the Chinese market to legal weed. At the same time, Stan Marsh and friends start a heavy metal band and are "discovered" and the record label retools the band to a more Chinese market-friendly concept. It's meant to be commentary on the Hollywood practice of molding export content to China's censorship policies. The episode also openly mocks China’s authoritative grasp on its citizens through censorship. The main example in the episode is Winnie the Pooh and Piglet being locked in Chinese jail because of a popular meme that compares China's president Xi to Pooh.


    As you might guess, China didn't take kindly to that. Everything about South Park vanished from China's internet and social media, including mentions on the country's Twitter-like Weibo, while links to episodes and seasons on streaming services no longer work. Even manual attempts to locate message threads come back with a notice that "According to the relevant law and regulation, this section is temporarily not open," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    Based on the language of Parker and Stone's statement and given the show's previous experiences with controversy, it's not likely anything is going to change in terms of South Park's content. In 2010, South Park's 200th episode -- appropriately named "200" -- resulted in the series being banned in Sri Lanka after the episode depicted the Buddha snorting cocaine.

    Brock thinks thats going to annoy me or something.

    China is a disgusting regime and the HK people still have enough freedom to fight back, any sane group of people would. South Park absolutely trashed China and Disney, it was savage. The CCP know they're wrong - they literally proved Trey & Matt right with no fucks given.

    What's hilarious is that a tyrannical, communist regime where you will be imprisoned in a labor camp or put to death over wrong-think / speech is the exact wet dream the modern American Nu-Left has and wants to make a reality in the future. They've started with red flag gun laws, internet censorship and deplatforming (now in overdrive) , shrieking at book retailers to stop carrying certain titles, revisitionist school text books, and firing people over dissenting political views or ideas. Seizure of private property is probably definitetly on the wish list.

    This is why they look like complete faggots lacking self awareness when they take to social media and get their virtue signal dopamine rush any time a foreign country is in turmoil and has an uprising. They actually believe they are somehow the gate-keepers of individual liberty & self determination. Guarantee there is likely millions of "I stand with the Hong Kong protesters..." interweb posts coming from U.S. coastal cities after they voted in the mid terms to expand fed gov powers/overreach or at a local level - fine a business $250K if an employer refuses to address an employee as a Bird and it's bird pronouns. (See the new NYC law).

    Yeah it's a pretty miserable fucking regime. The episode was hilarious, I was surprised by how good the current season was.
    I heard they also ban the NBA cause a player did something in solidarity with the Hong Kong Protesters lol. I always assumed China world hegemony would be used to just get the world to not talk bad about China while they pulverize the dog shit out of their own people. I heard the Triad doesn't allowed hollywood producers to make movies referencing them lol.

    If the regime is to collapse, it will have to be from the inside unfortunately. Everyone else is too much of an orc to do or say anything substantial.



    But in all reality, they're learning this shit from us, they're just too incompetent to market it to the citizens the way we do.

    The funniest scene was Randy giving Pooh a Colombian neck tie while staring into piglets eyes. On par with the George Lucas and Spielberg Deliverance style rape stuff they did.

    I'm surprised it wasn't banned from the beginning.
