South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have for a long time now danced on the razor's edge when it comes to making fun of celebrities, situations, religions, and pretty much anything they can think of, but this time it definitely turned on them since being banned throughout a country seems like a heavy hit to the old wallet if one is being honest.
