South Park did not invent the term "ginger". It was around long before South Park and at no time was there a "kick a ginger" day in the show. These Facebook people came up with that on their own.
Parents must really not want to believe that their kids are just f*cking stupid.
Hey, why did they say there wern't any vampires in the newest south park episode, don't they know gigner people exist
most of the people that watch south park get the point of the show, that it mostly takes the piss out of how ridiculous descriminations, racists acts, stupid preconceptions and close minded beliefs are (as we can very well see by watching cartman in many many episodes)
but with so much ofensiveness it's bound to attract the few retards that actually are like cartman and agree with some or all of his beliefs, and take the show the wrong way and use it to do this idiotic stuff
its sad really

You hit the nail on the head with that fo sho. I'm pretty strict with my son, and for the most part he is a damn good kid.
Sure wouldn't do something that foolish.
For bonus points, notice the headline in the CBC article (the second link) and its connection to another South Park episode that many of the posters in that comment thread would probably miss the point of as well.
Obviously, getting badly beaten up isn't fun or cool. And most of the kids at that school get that and understood that the prank was clearly taken way too f*cking far by the handful of kids involved.
Unfortunately, like life imitating art, watch the adults overreact and take retardation to new levels. I wonder where some kids get that kind of stupid, mob mentality behavior from? Surely not all the well-adjusted, intelligent adult role models we have in our society.
I think South Park has always been more about laughing your ass off and maybe thinking for yourself a little bit; not encouraging people to act like retards and hurt others or themselves because of something on TV, or relying on institutions and the police to think for you, but that's just me.
I've been a South Park fan since the very beginning. It's been a very long haul. And there have been some great times. And I've defended South Park a lot from people who would love to see it censored. My opinion is that in satire, everything is ripe for parody.
I've also got red hair.
Now, when the ginger kids episode aired, I was of course a bit annoyed, but decided to take it in stride. When the DVD came out, I listened to the micro-commentary for the episode, and was rather displeased to find out that this hate-on for "gingers" was actually a genuine sentiment of the Trey Parker.
Then in the intervening years I saw an increasing amount of aggression towards kids with red hair. Climaxing in this "kick a ginger" day we've all heard about by now.
And yes, the word "ginger" existed before South Park. And yes, kids will find an excuse to pick on anyone who is different than them. But I'm really sick of absolving Matt and Trey of any responsibility regarding anything and everything relating to South Park. South Park bears SOME responsibility, just like all the rest of us. And frankly, I won't be able to enjoy South Park anymore without visions of little red-headed kids getting the sh*t kicked out of them dancing in my head.
Words and media have an incredible amount of power. And South Park holds that power as much as any great book or film. The truly sad thing is, Matt and Trey will just write this incident off along with the dozens of other complaints they've heard over the years and go on with their lives. I hope one day they'll get the point.
So long South Park, it's been a blast.
Anyway, according to this article, the 14-year-old boy from Vancouver who ran the Facebook group has apologised and insisted that it was only meant as a joke, but the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has launched an investigation and warned that those involved could face charges.
"We do treat this sort of thing seriously," a police spokeswoman told the Vancouver Sun newspaper. "This is sort of inciting hate. It's a hate crime, really."

Does someone know the phrase "he said it for teh lulz"?
Except things that relate to you from what you say in that post. Thank you mr Hayyes, that will be all now.My opinion is that in satire, everything is ripe for parody

South park is more likely to discourage this kind of behaviour than encourage it. Though there are always a few stupid fans who just don't get it, they'd have got inspiration from anywhere.

There will always be idiotic bully kids in any school. The others know they're as retarded as cartman.
