'South Park' creators issue mock apology over China censorship

South Park’ Character Says ‘F**k The Chinese Government’ After Ban

The infamous scene of South Park, which got the show prohibited in China, was screened in the city of Hong Kong on Tuesday evening.

'Street cinema's been yet one more necessary side of #HK protests, w Winter On Fireplace on Ukraine's revolution & 1987: When The Day Comes on Korea's esp in style'.

Often one for not caring about the irony of the situation, the Chinese government has banned South Park in China following an episode that critiqued the USA media's acquiescence to Chinese media investors and censors.

Others likewise noticed that the screening was significant on the grounds that it gave an opportunity to more established network individuals who don't regularly watch Western amusement to get a feeling of how some incredible voices overseas are supporting Hong Kong's motivation, albeit numerous others have bowed to Beijing's business dangers.

Being banned in China is unfortunate but at the same time it's not just the episode that's been banned. Patrick Brzeski and Ryan Parker of The Hollywood Reporter have stated that South Park in its entirety has been taken out of China, including everything from the episodes to chats that have been deactivated and rendered null.

The move came quickly after the scene, which criticized both the nation, and media outlets for molding craftsmanship to curve to Chinese controls. Following the censorship, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone issued a statement that contained a tongue-in-cheek apology to the Chinese government.

"South Park" discussion forums were shut down, and videos of the show were removed from the Chinese internet after last week's episode mocked the country's censorship. Think of that, if the government doesn't like it then they're bound to say "no more" and simply ban something. much as they've done with a few different social media brands that allow for freedom of thought and expression. Xi [Jinping] doesn't look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th scene this Wednesday at 10! Long live the great Communist Party of China'. May the pre-winter's sorghum collect be plentiful.

The N.B.A.is hardly the first worldwide business to make concessions to China's political sensitivities as it seeks access to its lucrative market, or to forcefully apologize after running afoul of them.

"I am snickering with tears in my eyes", one unknown client composed on a dissident gathering because of the scene.

Banning what you don't like seems to be a trend that China has taken to the extreme at this point since South Park has found no love overseas as of late thanks to their incessant need to keep poking the bear, as the saying goes.

The episode also includes a plot line in which a character is caught selling drugs in China and as punishment is sent to a work camp, similar to the mass internment camps in Xinjiang where an estimated one million people, including Uighurs and other Muslim minorities are detained.
