The Real Reason South Park Was Banned in China

In fact, Matt Stone and Trey Parker sarcastically apologized, "Like the National Basketball Association, we welcome Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts, ".

Wednesday night's episode on Comedy Central, called "SHOTS!", reached a milestone as the series' 300th - and included a profane response to Beijing. The show also went after Hollywood and the National Basketball Association for doing business with the country.

"Band in China" was projected onto screens throughout Hong Kong's Sham Shui Po district on Tuesday, according THR.

The episode is also rife with criticism of Hollywood, depicting Randy Marsh on a plane full of Marvel characters owned by Disney. Why would they? The show has entered into its 23rd season and being banned only means that it's likely to grow even more popular as people realize that censorship, being as divisive as it really is sometimes, is just another way to show the true colors of those that have no interest in free thought, expression, or even a hint that they're willing to step outside the box that some are more than willing to force others into. Pooh Bear, first seen in a Chinese prison, is assassinated later in the episode by Randy Marsh at the behest of China, after a student makes the comparison.

"Like the National Basketball Association, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts", Parker and Stone wrote. "We also love cash more than opportunity and vote based system". Xi doesn't look just like Winnie the Pooh at all! Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10! Long live the incomparable Communist Party of China. May this autumn's sorghum harvest be bountiful! "We great now China?"

Tensions were also rising between the US and China over a controversy involving the National Basketball Association - sparked by a weekend Twitter message in which Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey expressed support for pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong, a Chinese territory.

"For what reason should we be afraid of communists?" Forget them! They are unimportant on every level and in every single way. "We have great respect for the history and culture of China and hope that sports and the National Basketball Association can be used as a unifying force to bridge cultural divides and bring people together".

If you're not paying attention, Michael Hitlzik of the Los Angeles Times has written about this matter as the National Basketball Association actually apologized for one man's tweet, that man being the GM of the Houston Rockets, Daryl Morey. "I did not intend my tweet to cause any offense to Rockets fans and friends of mine in China", he tweeted. So who cares if they're offended? "My tweets are my own and in no way represent the Rockets or the National Basketball Association".
