“South Park” airs censored episode after threat

By Alex Dobuzinskis Wed Apr 21, 10:30 PM PDT

Satirical animated TV show “South Park” beeped out the words Prophet Muhammad and plastered its Wednesday episode with the word “CENSORED” after being issued a grim warning by a U.S. Muslim group.

The irreverent comedy show on Comedy Central also substituted a controversial image seen last week of the Prophet Muhammad in a bear outfit with one of Santa Claus in the same costume.

It was not immediately clear if the move was a bid to tread carefully following the warning against the “South Park” creators, or if they were poking fun at the fuss.

The little-known group RevolutionMuslim.com posted a message on its website earlier this week warning creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker “that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show.”

The website posted a graphic photo of Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was killed in 2004 by an Islamic militant over a movie he had made that accused Islam of condoning violence against women. It also posted a link to a news article with details of a mansion in Colorado that Parker and Stone apparently own.

Most Muslims consider any depiction of the founder of Islam as offensive.

The website warning followed the first in a two-part episode of “South Park” a week ago in which Prophet Mohammad was depicted in a bear outfit.

“South Park” has a history of biting satire against politicians, celebrities and the media. The two Colorado filmmakers are known to often work on “South Park” until just before they air, enabling them to react to current events.

In Wednesday’s new episode, Jesus Christ was depicted watching pornography and Buddha was portrayed snorting cocaine.

The head of Revolution Muslim, Younus Abdullah Muhammad, 30, defended the Web posting by his group.

”How is that a threat?,” he told Reuters earlier on Wednesday. “Showing a case study right there of what happened to another individual who conducted himself in a very similar manner? It’s just evidence.”

According to U.S. law enforcement officials, the federal government rarely prosecutes threat cases. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives broad protections to free speech, and what constitutes a threat is often subject to interpretation.

Muhammad described his group as an alternative media outlet with about 20 active posters to the website. He said the group “didn’t tell anyone to go to their houses and conduct violence” against Parker or Stone.

Comedy Central, a unit of Viacom Inc, has declined to comment on the controversy.

ET, if you don’t give me 1000 BP now for the modding I used to do, that’s a very stupid move.

Kan. man convicted in fatal Emporia shooting

EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) – A 21-year-old Emporia man who was present when an acquaintance shot and killed another man has been found guilty of felony murder.

A jury in Lyon County District Court deliberated less than four hours Monday before convicting Samuel Llamas on the murder charge and a charge of aiding in a shooting into an unoccupied vehicle.

The man described by witnesses as the shooter, Mike Navarro, moved to Mexico after the killing last September and has not been charged.

Prosecutors said Llamas was with Navarro when the victim, Omar Flores, was shot at least 10 times outside an Emporia motel last September. Witnesses said Flores was killed because he refused to pay for a bad batch of methamphetamine.

That wasn’t a threat, BTW. It was just a case study of what happened to another individual who conducted himself in a very similar manner. It’s just evidence.

Wow, the writers of South Park have totally lost the balls they never had in the first place, haven’t they?

If they’re going to deliberately make a poor attempt at being edgy and controversial, they could at least go the full hog.

Anybody Ever think that they planned to do this from the beginning? It seems like a much better political commentary then making a joke.

But in all seriousness, this is pretty stupid. They literally bleeped out every ‘Muhammad’ that was said and an entire ~30 second part just not to offend muslim radicals. I get they probably didn’t feel like being killed over a cartoon, it’s just stupid that these muslim radicals are so easily offended. Jesus, Krishna, Joseph Smith were all made fun of in the same two episodes; they even made Moses out as the Master Control Program from Tron. Log in to see images!

I think someone may have missed the point.

It’s ridiculous, yes, and it makes the fundamentalists look stupid to be demanding such ridiculous things. All the fuss over not showing Muhammed set against their treatment of other religious figures just hangs a lampshade on how stupid the whole thing is.

Or maybe I missed the point. One of us did.

No, I got the joke as to how they were making fun of the world for not being able to say Muhammad, but it progressed in the second episode into a wave of stupidity.

You can’t even watch it in SouthParkStudios.com (as of this morning when I checked), because Comedy Central added in all those last minute bleeps and isn’t giving them the rights to put it up without them.

Looks like the censorship wasn’t part of the episode, but put in place after delivery by Comedy Central.
