South Park Creators Slam Combs' Campaign

SOUTH PARK creators TREY PARKER and MATT STONE have slammed rap mogul SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS' VOTE OR DIE campaign.

The satirical duo - whose anti-Republican movie TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE hits cinemas next week (begs11OCT04) - have accused the hip-hop star of endangering democracy by forcing young Americans to vote in November's (04) Presidential elections, reports website PAGESIX.COM.

Stone complains, "I think just saying 'Vote or Die' is a serious danger to democracy. If you don't know what you're talking about, there's no shame in not voting.

"They say if you don't vote, you can't b*tch. But you can vote all you want. This is America."

Parker adds, "Hey, 19-year-old who doesn't know anything — you chose!"

But Combs' spokesman counters, "Because of the work that Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs has done, voter registration is up 250 per cent. Anybody that thinks voting is dangerous for a democracy is a fool."
