LOS ANGELES, CA – A TV show known for pushing the envelope received some unwanted warnings regarding its latest episode!
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of “South Park,” seem unfazed by a recent warning of violence. During last week’s episode, the show depicted Muhammad in a bear suit. That did not go over well with the Muslim community and spurred Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee to say the creators “outright insulted” the religious leader.
In addition, RevolutionMuslim.com, a website known for supporting jihad, published a warning against the creators. The statement said that Parker and Stone could end up like Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was shot and stabbed to death by an extremist, for depicting Muhammad on their show.
Muhammad was set to appear on this week’s show but he was replaced by Santa Claus in a bear suit. The show was filled with the word “CENSORED” and every mention of Muhammad was bleeped out. It remains to be seen if this was a direct response to the warning or if it was the creators mocking the commotion over their episode.
