South Park Makes Unapologetic Jabs at Chinese Regime in Latest Episode

So certainly the creators of the show, Matt Stone and Trey Parker were quick to respond with a Tweet from South Parks twitter handle.

In a continuation of last week's episode, this week's, the 300th (!) episode, South Park in no subtle way alludes to corporate greed outweighing the importance of democracy, while at the same time touching on human rights abuses on the part of the Chinese government. And while information on South Park was still available on a few video streaming sites, episodes could not be played. "We also love cash more than opportunity and vote based system". In many ways Parker and Stone have at least shown a good example of how to deal with governments that don't seem to have a sense of humor, unlike the National Basketball Association. In a work camp, he meets Winnie the Pooh, who, the show explains, was banned after Chinese social media users pointed out his resemblance to Mr. Xi.

The infamous scene of South Park, which got the show prohibited in China, was screened in the city of Hong Kong on Tuesday evening.

Numerous praised South Park makers Trey Parker and Matt Stone as "prophets", and uncommon Western media figures ready to demonstrate "solid spine" because of the Chinese government's endeavors to smother global free discourse.

"South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker issued a mock apology to China on Monday, saying "Like the National Basketball Association, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts".

South Park is the show to watch. It might also be worth noting that those that are crying that we live in a fascist country don't seem to know the meaning of the word since we have the right to say what we want and do what we want within our legal boundaries and the government has no right to touch us unless what is said incites a riot or is seen to actively harm others. It referenced China's crackdown on Winnie the Pooh, which has become a symbol of resistance against China's ruling Communist Party and its leader, President Xi Jinping. May this autumn's sorghum harvest be bountiful! "We good now China?" the statement read.
