The creators of South Park Matt Stone and Trey Parker responded to the Chinese authorities, who removed all references to South Park from the Internet segment of the country after the episode, which ridiculed local censorship, was released. This was reported on Twitter animated series.

The authors of the series brought an “official apology” to China.

Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts. We too love money more than freedom and democracy. Xi doesn’t look just like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10! Long live the Great Communist Party of China! May the autumn’s sorghum harvest be bountiful! We good now China?

In a statement, Stone and Parker also ridiculed the scandal of the NBA and its Chinese partners. After the manager of the Houston Rockets basketball team Daryl Morey supported the Hong Kong protests on his Twitter, in China they decided to suspend all communications with the team. Later, Morey and NBA representatives apologized to fans from China.

The Chinese authorities removed references to the animated series from the network after the episode of Band in China, consonant with Banned in China, in which the authors criticized attempts at self-censorship in Hollywood to avoid business problems in China. The series was released on October 2.
