Kanye West on South Park

Back in 2009, South Park aired an episode based around the idea that Kanye West is actually a gay fish, or that he’s so insecure that a joke about him being a gay fish would be enough to plunge him into an identity crisis. That episode, one of the most famous in the show’s history, led to a shockingly honest and non-pissed blog response from Kanye, though he did later threaten to “choke a South Park writer with a fish stick” on record. (This was the same album where Kanye said “Fuck SNL and they whole staff.” Bill Hader: twice dissed!) Well, Kanye now has more reason to get weirdly, conflictedly upset. Last night’s South Park season finale, titled “The Hobbit,” featured the return of Kanye, now a “recovering gay fish” engaged to Kim Kardashian. This one, built around ideas of Photoshop and body-image issues, is more targeted at Kim than at Kanye, but there’s still plenty of stuff in there, including a “Bound 2” parody. (If that response time strikes you as impressive, there’s also a bit about Time naming Pope Francis as its Man Of The Year. That happened yesterday.) Watch a clip below.

You can watch the full episode, which is so funny that I can’t remember why I stopped watching South Park regularly, at South Park Studios.

  1. This season so far has been great, much better than the last. Haven’t seen the new episode yet though, so I’m refraining from watching these bits.

  2. The response time is impressive and you can find out how they do it in the documentary 6 Days to Air which I believe is still on netflix. It’s really amazing being able to see them put out such good stuff in such a small amount of time.

  3. Any straight man who tries to say Kim isn’t hot as fuck is lying. Sure, she’s a vapid, talentless, and entitled ho, but she looks good doing it.

  4. Sometimes I feel like the media is poking a mentally challenged kid then doing back flips of excitement when he freaks out.

  5. I hate when you guys fight

  6. I reread his statement from the fist South Park “gay fish” episode.

    “I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO … I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. … I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE.” ”

    Kanye’s past year indicates he has not followed through on this.

  7. omg South Park has been so bad for like 7 years

  8. I think I liked South Park’s Bound 2 better than Rogen & Franco’s.

    Pope Francis correcting Kanye on Hobbit lore was too perfect.

  9. Funny stuff. I think another group that is ripe for parody is the rather strikingly large and vocal fanbase that takes pleasure from his sad mental delusions and thinks it’s entertaining. Same with R. Kelly.

  10. I was yakking it up over the tale of Hobbit Kim praying to god, and Lord Yeezus answering her prayers, but the ending handing me legitimately sad.

  11. Since when did Kanye West turn into a black Danny McBride
