The Chinese government deleted all traces of the Comedy Central show “South Park” from the Internet in China, after the show mocked Hollywood’s willingness to please the country’s authoritarian regime.


Episodes, clips, and online discussions of the show have been removed from the Chinese internet, according to The Hollywood Reporter. THR reviewed the Chinese social network Weibo and found zero mention of the series; clips and episodes on Chinese streamer Youku didn't work; and "South Park" discussion forums on Tieba had been closed.

"According to the relevant law and regulation, this section is temporarily not open," a note on the platform says when you search for a "South Park" discussion thread, according to THR.

In the episode, Hollywood wants to make a biopic of Stan Marsh's band, but must alter the movie to fit China's regulations. Meanwhile, Stan's dad, Randy, attempts to sell marijuana in the country after people in South Park stop buying his and start growing their own.
