The most recent episode of America’ adult sitcom South Park, ‘Band in China,’ has been banned in China because its content reflects too closely real life in China, touching on politically sensitive topics for the Beijing regime like crimes of live organ harvesting and extrajudicial killings.
“[Chinese leader] Xi [Jinping] doesn’t look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10,” South Park’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone wrote in a statement on Oct. 7.
“Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts,” the statement reads.
“We too love money more than freedom and democracy.”
