South Park episode mocks censorship controversy: ‘F*** the Chinese government’
Comedy made headlines last week after China banned show and all mention of it on internet
Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s comedy was censored in China for criticising the government and calling out Hollywood and the NBA for doing business with the country.
The show is now banned from airing in China and all mentions of it have been removed from the country’s internet pages.
Wednesday's episode, titled "SHOTS!!!" included a plot line that focussed on South Park making headlines last week.
The character Randy, who was selling weed to China and overlooking its human rights atrocities in the process, was forced to loudly condemn the country by his former business partner, Towelie, whose principles led him to judge anyone who does business there.
Earlier this week, Stone and Parker also issued a mock apology to China, writing on Twitter: “Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts.”
"SHOTS!!!" was the 300th episode of South Park, which has been running since 1997.
