"South Park" vs. Scientology: Round 2
Many news outlets are reporting rumors that a rebroadcast of the “Trapped in a Closet” episode of South Park was pulled due to threats from Hollywood star Tom Cruise. The episode, originally broadcast last year and originally scheduled to re-air last Wednesday, made fun of the Church of Scientology and Tom Cruise specifically. Representatives for both Cruise and Comedy Central denied the rumors.
Despite the denials, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone issued a statement through their lawyer which began, “Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for Earth has just begun!” The entirety of the statement is available at the National Public Radio website, which confirmed that the statement is genuine.
