“South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone delivered a message to communist China Wednesday night after Beijing banned their animated series over its criticisms of the Chinese government.
“F*** the Chinese Government!!,” characters “Towlie” and “Randy” shout, after “Towlie” admonishes “Randy” for selling marijuana to China and tells him about the country’s human rights atrocities.
“Towlie” then bashes China – and anyone who does business with the country (Hello, NBA!) – before he and “Randy” shout the profane message together.
From Fox Business:
On Monday, Chinese censors erased, deleted and purged every clip, episode and online discussion of the show from the country’s streaming services and social media outposts. The move was a response to last week’s episode, which mocked Hollywood for a tendency in recent years to avoid offending Chinese censors as it pursues big profits in the communist country.
Tensions were also rising between the U.S. and China over a controversy involving the NBA – sparked by a weekend Twitter message in which Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey expressed support for pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong, a Chinese territory.
Several companies in China, including some of the NBA’s major business partners there, lashed out at the league over Morey’s tweet.
WIBC host Tony Katz commented on the NBA controversy during Thursday’s edition of ‘Tony Katz Today.’
“China is run by communists; they’re not good people. So who cares if they’re offended? ‘South Park’ gets it.
“For what reason should we be afraid of communists? They’re communists. They’re terrible, disgusting, despicable, awful, shameful, horrible, terrible people. They’re murderous sons of guns. Forget them! They are unimportant on every level and in every single way. They don’t matter. They’re not good enough to stand next to us. They are nowhere near our level of decency and humanity. They are killers from the word ‘go’ – killers of the soul and killers of the body. That’s who they are.”
