South Park: 10 Most Controversial Moments

Who would've thought a cartoon could ruffle so many feathers?

If there's something that's characterised Matt Stone and Trey Parker's notorious animated series, it's controversy. Due to the typical nature of animation, people never really expected that one of the crudest shows on TV would be a cartoon.

Yet, through all of the harsh reactions from critics, parents, and the celebrities that have fallen under Parker and Stone's mockery, the show continues to be consistently lauded by critics and maintains its audience to this day.

That said, it hasn't all been smooth-sailing for the show. Whether it's facing heavy protests from parent groups or even death threats from Middle Eastern groups, these showrunners have been called every name from every kind of person. This makes narrowing down their most controversial decisions and the show's most troubling moments extremely difficult, but let's give it a shot.

This list excludes the South Park video games (which could likely earn high-ranking spots on this list) and instead focuses strictly on the show, with the series' no-holds-barred comedy including 'too soon' jokes, sacrilegious plot lines, and even the occasional spot of racism over its 20+ year history.
