Comedy Central Censors Muhammad from South Park

In the continuing drama over SOUTH PARK’s portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit in its 200th episode, Comedy Central has decided to censor the scenes in the second installment.

In the continuing drama over SOUTH PARK’s portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit in its 200th episode, Comedy Central has decided to censor the scenes in the second installment. All references to the Prophet Muhammad were bleeped and images were blacked out, making the episode hard to follow.

The move seems spurred by veiled threats of violence that appeared on the radical Islamic website RevolutionMuslim.com.

Both episodes were not posted on the South Park Studios website. A message reads: "We do not have network approval to stream our original version of the show. We will bring you a version of (Episode) 201 as soon as we can."
