Hayes goes South

The "South Park" that made Scientologist Isaac Hayes jump ship.

March 15, 2006 7:43PM (UTC)

As already reported, Isaac Hayes quit his voiceover role on "South Park" (fans will know him as "Chef") because the show was too mean to Scientology (Hayes is a Scientologist). "There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins," Hayes says. Some flagrant copyright-infringer has posted the whole episode that seems to have pushed Hayes over the edge, and we're providing it below so you can judge for yourelf. As a bonus, we're linking to the December "Bloody Mary" episode of "South Park" below that, with its menstruating Madonna, was pulled (at least temporarily) from Comedy Central's line-up. Isn't the Internet great? (Warning: YouTube may require you to register to watch these, since they're for mature audiences.)
