‘South Park’ Episode Banned In China Screened On Hong Kong Street

In the episode Shots, which was coincidentally the show's 300th episode, Stan Marsh's father Randy is running a weed business selling product to China.

South Park stood out as truly newsworthy around the globe this week when The Hollywood Reporter announced that the show was prohibited in China and all notices of the animation were cleaned from the Chinese web and spilling administrations.

Since the government tightly regulates the censored media, South Park vanished from the face of China. Xi doesn't look like Winnie the Pooh by any stretch of the imagination. Since they also bend to China's rules and regulations.

Afterward, several NBA-related events in China were canceled, but two scheduled preseason games between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets were still on as of early Thursday.

Eventually the boys tire of the ordeal.

The N.B.A.is hardly the first global business to make concessions to China's political sensitivities as it seeks access to its lucrative market, or to forcefully apologize after running afoul of them.

Disney, for one, earned $858 million for "Avengers: Endgame" in the United States and an additional $614 million from China. So what's the difference between South Park and the National Basketball Association?

The incident comes as the National Basketball Association and its Houston Rockets franchise are facing fierce criticism and financial punishment in China over a tweet supporting Hong Kong's democracy protesters. 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. The banned episode was screened by street cinemas in China and viewed by many pedestrians. The previous episode, "Band in China", featured criticisms of Chinese labor camps and of Hollywood's dependency on China, leading the Chinese government to wipe "South Park" episodes from the internet and and any mention of the show off popular social media websites. "We, too, love money more than freedom and democracy", the apology read. It might also be worth noting that those that are crying that we live in a fascist country don't seem to know the meaning of the word since we have the right to say what we want and do what we want within our legal boundaries and the government has no right to touch us unless what is said incites a riot or is seen to actively harm others.

Brand-new episodes of "South Park" Season 23 air every Wednesday night. Lengthy dwell the good Communist Celebration of China'.

This is how you respond to Chinese censorship.
