Really just banned China South Park
South Park Controversy: Makers React Greatly To Banned Show
South Park doesn't mince words - and has been for 23 seasons. Controversy abounded, but less in recent years. This made South Park possibly the best series that few people care about. But that changed suddenly.
The last episode heavily criticized that How Hollywood deals with the Chinese market, because of which films are often rewritten. The appropriate name of the episode "Band in China" now also fits South Park: The series was banned in China. The reaction of the series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker is now all the better.
This is what the South Park makers say about the China scandal
No episode of the controversial series can be found on the heavily censored Chinese Internet. Stone and Parker released one in a statement, according to Cinema Blend "Sorry" to China:
Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and hearts. We too love money more than freedom and democracy. Xi doesn't look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune in to our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10 am! Long live the great Chinese Communist Party. May the sorgum harvest be plentiful in autumn. Is everything okay now, China?
That means the statement of the South Park makers
Instead of a real apology, South Park just puts a finger in the wound here, of course. Because that too NBA has problems with China: A tweet from the Houston Rockets manager in support of the Hong Kong protests was deleted following a pressure from the Basketball League. The NBA then published an apology and sent warnings to the league's other managers.
The passage around China's Presidents Xi Jinping and Winnie the Pooh also has one bizarre background: The Disney film Christopher Robin was banned in China because the bear was used by resistance fighters to make fun of Xi.
The uproar over South Park, which has just been extended by several seasons, should please Stone and Parker, because the 300th episode of the animated series is coming up. Since the episodes will be finished in the week of the broadcast, we can expect more satirical processing of the case.
One thing is for sure: South Park did with the last episode hit a nerve and further controversies on the subject of China cannot be ruled out.
