Q1. Should Comedy Central have allowed a cartoon depiction of Mohammad to be aired on South Park?
Q2. Should Comedy Central have bleeped the name "Mohammad" throughout the episode, and then bleep over a minute of dialogue? (this is what they did)
State your reason.
Following the airing of the 201st episode, the creators of South Park released this message:
"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."
