'South Park': Notorious China Episode Screened on the Streets of Hong Kong

A recent episode that portrayed the rise of self censorship in Hollywood in order to appease the Chinese "audience" was banned by the Chinese government.

Today in Sham Shui Po, @SouthPark scene "Band in China" appeared on road to huge and thankful crowd. That's right, one of the most popular sports in the country, in the world no doubt, has been granted an example as to what's really important, money over principles as it's been stated.

The episode especially reverberated with the individuals of Hong Kong as a result of its immediate takedown of the strategies Chinese government uses to quietness disagreeing voices, a playbook that has been rehashed turned out in Hong Kong. Xi [Jinping] doesn't look like Winnie the Pooh at all.

The league has spent the better part of this week trying to mend fences with its partners in China while at the sam time claiming that it supported the free speech rights of its owners and players, a position that has seemingly satisfied nobody. According to the artist, because of his interactions with the South Park account on Twitter, China came down on him with the banhammer.

On Monday, Chinese censors erased, deleted and purged every clip, episode and online discussion of the show from the country's streaming services and social media outposts.

Last week's episode, called "Band in China", mocked Chinese censorship and Hollywood's reliance on the country's box office to boost potential blockbusters. Tune into our 300th scene this Wednesday at 10!
