Leave it to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone to figure out a way to be offensive to the point of threats on a radical Islamic website. posted a “warning” after last week’s episode featuring the Prophet Muhammad in a bear costume. “What they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh,” who was murdered after filming a documentary about violence against Muslim women, the website reads.

The post claims, “this is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen.” It includes a graphic photo of van Gogh, a recording of a sermon about assassinating anyone who defames Muhammad, and a link to an article with details of Stone and Parker’s mansion…sounds like a threat to us, but the author of the post reiterates to Fox News that it was meant to “raise awareness.”
