EDITED TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SEE IT NOW NOW NOW!:

Ladies and gentleman, I give you... the official death of Chef.





The original post:

I'm honestly not surprised, especially since he didn't appear in the Tom Cruise in the closet episode of South Park that knocked Scientology, but Isaac Hayes has chosen to leave South Park

The article


Isaac Hayes Quits 'South Park' Over 'Bigotry'
Outspoken Scientologist Upset With Show's Depiction of Religion
By ERIN CARLSON, AP

NEW YORK (March 13) - Isaac Hayes has quit "South Park," where he voices Chef, saying he can no longer stomach its take on religion.

Hayes, who has played the ladies' man/school cook in the animated Comedy Central satire since 1997, said in a statement Monday that he feels a line has been crossed.

"There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins," the 63-year-old soul singer and outspoken Scientologist said.

"Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored," he continued. "As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices."

"South Park" co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press Monday, saying, "This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology... He has no problem - and he's cashed plenty of checks - with our show making fun of Christians."

Last November, "South Park" targeted the Church of Scientology and its celebrity followers, including actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta, in a top-rated episode called "Trapped in the Closet." In the episode, Stan, one of the show's four mischievous fourth graders, is hailed as a reluctant savior by Scientology leaders, while a cartoon Cruise locks himself in a closet and won't come out.

Stone told The AP he and co-creator Trey Parker "never heard a peep out of Isaac in any way until we did Scientology. He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin."

I don't think I could agree anymore with your agreement.


Just one question, whose going to be the new Chef?

Yeah, so far, I've been reading the thoughts in news forums and most seem put off by his leaving. The consensus seems to be that he's full of shit for leaving, especially after 10 years of lining his pocket during the years of knocking everything and everyone else.

EDIT: Hobo, I'm not sure who's going to do Chef or if Chef'll even be on the show any more. It could very well be like the Simpsons where people just don't appear anymore or there's some half-assed explanation and everything goes on like it normally did.

You know what they're going to do, right? They're going to make a episode about a guy who quits a popular show for a silly reason. Or at least refer to it.

I could quote everyone like they have been, but I was too lazy to click the quote link thing. Anyways, I do agree with that he's pretty much holding double standards on that.

I don't watch South Park very often, but from what I see, their pretty equal in making fun of everything they can get their hands on (not that it's a bad thing usually), so I don't see them being unfair and Hayes is being perhaps overly sensitive to it.

yeah seriously, the guy who plays chef is an ass. isn't one of the rules as a Scientologist is that you're supposed avoid ppl/ leave ppl who make fun of the religion?

but yeah... i hate people who are all, "oh, they're evil for making fun of religion" but the fact is that he isn't standing up for all religions, he's only using it as a front because they made fun of his -.-'

I dont think its just Christians, its almost every religion in general...Coming from me, everyone needs to learn that its just a comedy show and religious people need to laugh at their face on the whole matter and dont take everything so seriously...

I was never offended at the show nor will I ever be... (if you havent guessed, im a heavy Christian )

I laughed a bit when Kenny had the Golden PSP and controlling God's army...

I am very suprised. South Park has always had comedy in making fun of religious groups and current events. Isaac Hayes leaving is a huge disappointment. I hope this is only temporary and that he decides to come back. Even without Chef, South Park will still be hilarious, but this is still a huge disappointment.

Lol... What can I say... I agree with everyone who agrees, and I agree with the quote itself... Hell I agree with everything that the show "South Park" has ever stated to be true. (well y'know, unless they were kidding or having a stupid person say it)

It's one of my favorite shows, because it allows me to laugh at the idiocy of the world around me. ^^; *points and laughs at the next person who says they agree, because they're such a sheep*

**nods** I would look at it in a completely different light if he was trying to defend all religions. But then again, that comment about cashing the checks is a good argument against his sudden actions toward them.

Like others have stated already, the show makes fun of EVERYTHING it seems. I see no discrimination there really. Humor is something the world needs. It takes things that happened or is happening and makes us laugh. You'd be suprised how much more people see when they can laugh at it.

Watched Matt and Trey on David Letterman last week. When the subject of Isaac's leaving came up they mentioned that while making the episode they already had an inkling that he was going to leave because of the subject matter.

So it isn't as though they were shocked by Isaac's sudden change of heart.

They did also mentioned that in recent years, he hasn't really been a major part of the show any more, so the transition isn't as tough as one would think.

Sorry, that it isn't the whole episode. There's sections on "Chef Returns" on YouTube, but they don't have the end scene that I posted.

If you don't want to bother looking for videos, but are stilld interested in finding out how it all led up to this point:
Spoiler:
Chef joined the Super Adventurers Club to get away from his dull life in South Park, but came back brainwashed. It's so blatantly obvious that his voice is done by soundboards.

Anyway, Chef comes back brainwashed and looking to molest him some little boys. The boys break him of this habit by taking him to a strip club to make him interested in women.

Eventually Chef is recaptured bythe Super Adventurers who divulge that their cult is solely based on being the first to have sex with the little boys of a particular area, spoofing the explanation of what Scientologists believe in the episode which initiated the controversy in the first place.

That was amazing. I still don't know why he didn't have a problem when they made fun of scientology as blaintology or the stuck in the closet episode.

I saw the episode last night, ya'll. It was a little forced but funny as hell. They did a good job whacking him in the end. I kind of wished they resolved theis, but Isaac had it coming.

That's not the point. This was like an official death of a character that had somewhat of an importance and is not coming back. I mean, they really killed him bad this time. Chef is not going to randomly reappear like Kenny does (did).

Anyway, the ending to that South Park episode:
