I don’t usually watch South Park because it is at times, shall we say, a little crude. But it can also be wickedly funny. Apparently, its latest episode was disrespectful to China, causing it to be banned in China according to Fox News.
Of course, being 2019, that led to a groveling apology by the show’s creators:
Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts,” Parker and Stone wrote. “We too love money more than freedom and democracy. Xi doesn’t look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10! Long live the great Communist Party of China. May the autumn’s sorghum harvest be bountiful. We good now China?
The name of the episode is “Band in China” and The Federalist has a link to the episode on its website.Published in
