"South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone devised their plan to fire in China after Beijing banned their long-running animated series for its criticism of the Chinese government.
The Wednesday night episode on Comedy Central, entitled "SHOTS !!!", reached a milestone with the 300th in the series – and included a profane response to Beijing.
"F — the Chinese government !!" they shout "Towlie" and "Randy" after Towlie warns Randy for selling marijuana in China and tells him about the atrocities of human rights in the country.
Towlie then punishes China – and anyone who does business with the country – before he and Randy shout the secular phrase.

On Monday, the Chinese censors canceled, deleted and deleted every clip, episode and online discussion of the show from streaming services and social media in the country. The move was a response to last week's episode, which in recent years has mocked Hollywood for a tendency to avoid offending Chinese censors while pursuing big profits in the communist country.
Tensions between the United States and China also increased due to a dispute involving the NBA – triggered by a weekend Twitter message in which Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey expressed support for the democratic protesters of Hong Kong, a Chinese territory.
Several companies in China, including some of the NBA's main trading partners, have launched into Morey's tweet.
Subsequently, several NBA-related events in China were canceled, but two preseason games scheduled between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets were still scheduled to start on Thursday.
