Craven Comedy Central

Not only did they censor the image of Mohammed in episode 201, but they bleeped out every mention of his name. Just to be on the safe side.

Parker and Stone are not happy. A statement on (not viewable in UK, except by proxy), they say:

In the 14 years we’ve been doing South Park we have never done a show that we couldn’t stand behind. We delivered our version of the show to Comedy Central and they made a determination to alter the episode. It wasn’t some meta-joke on our part. Comedy Central added the bleeps. In fact, Kyle’s customary final speech was about intimidation and fear. It didn’t mention Muhammad at all but it got bleeped too. We’ll be back next week with a whole new show about something completely different and we’ll see what happens to it.

By giving in to the threats of, Comedy Central has made a tiny band of idiots feel very big and clever.

UPDATE: Comedy Central have also removed the “Super Best Friends” episode from their website.

    They didn’t even show episode 201 in the Uk tonight and they didn’t even repeat episode 200 which they showed in it’s entirety last week, they repeated a couple of other episodes from thie current series.

    I say we boycott comedy central til they stop being a bunch of fucking morons

    This is ridiculous.

    Is Kyle’s censored final speech out there somewhere? It’d be interesting to read that.
