'South Park' Gets Censored After Threats
Comedy Central bleeped all references to the Prophet Muhammad on Wednesday’s installment of South Park after a radical Muslim website issued a warning to the show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, pictured. In the previous episode, the Prophet Muhammad was depicted in a bear suit. The show also covered the character with a large block labeled "Censored" and blocked the episode from its website.
RevolutionMuslim.com posted the warning along with a graphic photo of Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was slain in 2004 after making a documentary on violence against Muslim women. "We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show," the site says. "This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."
