South Park takes shots at Chinese censorship in 300th episode

by Blair Balog (2020-03-10)


id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> On Wednesday night South Park marked its 300th episode by doing exactly what the irreverent Comedy Central animated show has been doing since 1997: mocking the powerful.

The new episode, Shots, the third installment of season 23, included a plot making fun of anti-vaxxers, featuring the always-ignorant Cartman claiming vaccination shots would turn him "artistic." But another plot featured Stan's dad, Randy Marsh, shouting, "Fuck the Chinese government."

— South Park (@SouthPark) October 10, 2019 The episode was following up on the global controversy created by its previous episode, Band in China. In that episode, Randy tries to expand his marijuana business to China and lands himself in a Chinese labor camp. That episode also poked fun at American organizations such as Disney and the NBA for doing business with China, and mocked Chinese censorship of stuffed bear Winnie the Pooh after some Chinese people compared his looks to those of Xi Jinping, China's president.

The Band in China episode angered Chinese censors, who wiped out video clips and discussions of the show on major platforms, such as the social network Weibo, according to The New York Times.

But the banned episode was apparently shown on the streets of Hong Kong.

"Tonight in Sham Shui Po, ⁦South Park⁩ episode 'Band in China' shown on street to large & appreciative audience," wrote author Kong Tsung-gan. "Street cinema's been yet another important facet of HK protests."

— Kong Tsung-gan / 江松澗 (@KongTsungGan) October 8, 2019 South Park creators Trey Parker and 토렌트 Matt Stone, no strangers to controversy, issued a fake apology Monday.

"Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts," they said. "We too love money more than freedom and democracy. Xi doesn't look just like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10! Long live the Great Communist Party of China! May this autumn's sorghum harvest be bountiful! We good now China?"

Fans in countries that were allowed to see and discuss the latest episodes thanked Parker and Stone on social media. "You know you really made it when you get banned in a country," one Twitter user wrote. "Congrats on 300."

Another called South Park the "best social commentary since Archie Bunker."

You know you really made it when you get banned in a country. Congrats on 300 🥳

— Anthony Petillo (@AnthonyPetillo) October 10, 2019 Happy 300th I'm still laughing harder every season

— AJ (@MURIC_AR_LAGER) October 10, 2019 Congrats all! Onward to 400 and beyond

— Scott Akos (@AkosScott) October 10, 2019 You have been a beacon of sanity in this insane world for over two decades. I still remember where I was when I first watched Frosty vs Jesus and Jesus vs Santa. Best social commentary since Archie Bunker.
Simply Amazing
Thank you.

The world of video games was drawn into its own China situation. Blizzard, the company behind the game Hearthstone, removed pro player Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai from a tournament and suspended him from pro play for one year after he made a statement supporting pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.
