On April 2nd, 2010, South Park aired their controversial 201st episode in which the prophet Muhammad was kidnapped and taken hostage. The episode garnered controversy for its censorship because of a perceived threat against the South Park creators by Muslim group, Revolution Muslim. My research uses a Semiotic analysis of the South Park episode and the response by Revolution Muslim from their now defunct website. My goal is to show and explain the reasons that drove the controversy in regards to the depiction of Muhammad.
