The regular refrain of “Who Killed Kenny?” could get a whole lot more serious now that South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have been threatened with violence as a result of their popular TV series making fun of Muslims, never mind that they are equally scathing of Christians, Jews, Mormons, Scientologists and others who take their religion too seriously. Reported by Fox News:

A radical Islamic website is warning the creators of “South Park” that they could face violent retribution for depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit during an episode broadcast on Comedy Central last week. [note: site appears to be down as of this posting] posted the warning following the 200th episode of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s “South Park,” which included a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad disguised in a bear suit. The Web posting also included a graphic photo of Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 after making a documentary on violence against Muslim women.

“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show,” the posting reads. “This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

Reaching by phone early Tuesday, Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post, said he wrote the entry to “raise awareness.” He said the grisly photograph of van Gogh was meant to “explain the severity” of what Parker and Stone did by mocking Muhammad.

“It’s not a threat, but it really is a likely outcome,” al Amrikee said, referring to the possibility that Parker and Stone could be murdered for mocking Muhammad. “They’re going to be basically on a list in the back of the minds of a large number of Muslims. It’s just the reality.”

Al Amrikee said the website is considering a protest against the “disgusting” show, which also depicted the Prophet Muhammad in an episode on July 4, 2001.

“This is not a small thing,” he said. “We should do whatever we can to make sure it does not happen again.”

The posting on also includes audio of a sermon by Anwar al-Awlaki — a radical U.S.-born preacher now believed to be hiding in Yemen — who discusses assassinating individuals who defame the Prophet Muhammad. It also included a link to a 2009 story in the Huffington Post that gave details of Stone and Parker’s mansion in Colorado…

    as long as people let radical Muslims dictate what people are allowed to say or do on any subject
    Muslims will continue to try and bully the rest of the world, I say every professional cartoonist should ban together and on one day publish comics mocking every prophet, the time when religion gangsters could
    force their will on the world has ended, all we have to do is show them.

    OH god, this should be good. GO Matt and Trey

  3. I love that most of the world's major religions devolve into adolescents when demanding respect. “I WANT RESPECT!” …while conducting themselves in a fashion that is GUARANTEED to generate massive disrespect. Christian, Muslim, Judaic, Scientology…whatever…as soon as it's their image on the chopping block of free speech, suddenly it's a game changer. I'd like a billboard campaign with Jesus, Mohammed, & Moses in a big gay gang bang…just on principle, because it isn't fair to leave anybody out of the outrage game.

    You're not a successful provocateur without the threat of Islamic retribution. What I would like to know is when are Jews and Christians going to start suicide bombing the annual march to Mecca, or follow in the steps of Vlad Tepes and impale these fuckers on spears, where they belong.

      If you find out I want to go. Note that you could reverse the orders of any of the religions involved and I would be equally entertained. Let them all wipe each other out and maybe we can finally have some damn peace and quiet around here. Maybe there is more to Rob Reiner's 'Goo Theory' than we initially thought.

  5. They ought to be arrested for trying to get Matt and Trey killed, they published comedy centrals address and addresses for an LA based production company owned by Matt and Trey. No wonder the sites offline, I can't understand the mentality of these kinds of people. I'm a Christian and they don't offend me one bit I love the show for ridiculing everyone and everything, I think people who take offence at what a show like South Park has to say about their god must have some serious faith issues, I mean what possible bearing do they think it is going to have on their god? It's really ironic they shout about a cartoon or a play that ridicules and belittles their god seemingly completely oblivious that is they who are ridiculing and belittling the god they claim to believe in. Even I think it would've been funny if all the Christians in the UK that had burned their BBC TV licenses, because the BBC broadcast Jerry Springer the musical, had followed Christs advice and plucked their eyes out for being offended. Evil I know but it would've been much much more symbolic than burning a piece of paper that you've alreaady paid for.

    I'm an advocate for religious tolerance and the concept of cultural relativity but seriously radical Islam: Learn to take a fucking joke you miserable pricks.

  7. If you can't take a joke, you have no business in modern society. Therefore, no televisions or anything invented after the era where your morals stopped developing. If you are intent to act upon truly medieval concepts and massive misinterpretations of the word of your prophet (who only asked that he not be pictured so as to not distract from focusing on Allah, not so you fuckheads could feel justified in threatening the deaths of cartoonists), you are not permitted to use the internet. If you want to be both Muslim and rational, you are welcome into the twenty-first century.

    Just to show everyone, including the radical moslems, just how ridiculous their death threats are, this clip is from
    Season 5, Episode 3: “Super Best Friends” in which Mohammed is depicted as a member of a group of Super
    Heroes comprised of religious prophets from the East and West. It is safe to say that in this depiction, he's
    hardly slandered at all (at least, not as much as another superhero by the name of “Seaman”).

    But, he is in a bear costume. They went to great lengths to hide what the prophet looks like, and this is the thanks they get? Religion is gay. No pun intended.

    Teddy bears are cute, c'mon lighten up. We should all worship teddy bears. Keep yer silly Prophets….Teddy bears rule…

    lol, the lads preempted all this as seen in tonight's ep. I wont ruin it

  12. I saw that episode tonight, every instance of the name Muhammad was censored, I was sort of hoping they were being ironic given the central theme of the episode.
