There are a few sites discussing the issue. It looks like the parent company of the Comedy Channel is scared of Radical Muslims, so are the South Park creators brave or stupidly looking to get killed by mocking Islam / Mohammad?

Should cartoons, TV shows mock everyone, or are there sacred cows that shouldn't be mocked?

It reminds me of the guy who voiced "Chef" quitting because they mocked Scientology, but hey mocking Christianity for years was ok.

If Southpark doesn't show the prophet Mohammed* being sodomized while dressed as a japanese schoolgirl, who will?

This is the great question of our age.

I'm not sure you really grasp how suicide bombing works.

Have fun trying to check out season five's Superfriends episode, it appears to have been removed.


this is either some incredibly well done meta-joke or what the fuck?

Why now? Is there something that happened recently that makes Radical Muslims more scary?

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."

They got threats("warnings") alluding to the murder of Theo van Gogh.

I actually saw both episodes. They were mocking censorship. HUGE portions of dialogue were censored out at the end of the second episode for comic effect. The more they censored the funnier and more ridiculous it got.

nope sorry, complete bullshit.
if you saw the episodes it's OBVIOUSLY clear that they did for comedic effect. Santa and Jesus also got censored too btw. It's all a publicity stunt, nothing to see here folks, move along.

Oh there is one thing I actually would believe and that's the fact that CC censored the name Muhammed in the second episode. that would be the repeated additional bleeps, Kyle Santa and Jesus? So, so funny.

Netflix also took it off of instant watch, which I know for a fact it didn't say that when I recently re-watched the Scott Tennerman must die episode, the episode immediately after it.
