South Park Episode Pokes Fun At Hayes

LATEST: Animated TV series SOUTH PARK has poked fun at departed star ISAAC HAYES and his Scientology beliefs by killing off his character CHEF in the opening episode of the next series. Hayes quit the popular programme last week (14MAR06) accusing its creators of promoting intolerance and bigotry. It is thought his outrage stemmed from an episode last November (05) which mocked fellow Scientologist TOM CRUISE, and insinuated the actor was a repressed homosexual. In the opening show of the 10th series, to be aired in the US on Wednesday (29MAR06), the controversial religion is satirised again, as Chef is brainwashed by the thinly disguised 'Super Adventure Club' and reportedly depicted as a paedophile. With lines patched together from previous episodes, Chef repeatedly tells children he wants to "make sweet love" to them before suffering a barrage of horrific accidents - including falling off a bridge, being burned, stabbed and mauled by wild animals - before dying. At his funeral, characters express anger at his recent poor judgement, saying, "A lot of us don't agree with the choices the Chef has made in the last few days. "Some of us feel hurt and confused that he seemed to turn his back on us." Apparently referring to Scientology, another blasts "that fruity little club for scrambling his brains".
