South Park is already banned in China and scrubbed from its Internet because of an episode titled “Band In China,” which saw Randy caught trying to sell marijuana in China and sent to a prison work camp. It and other episodes seemingly have been scrubbed from Chinese streaming services, social media sites including Weibo and Baidu, fan sites and discussion pages, according to reports. The ban caught the attention of show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who issued a statement. “Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts,” Parker and Stone wrote. “We too … [Read more...] about South Park Continues To Mock China, Its President, & Takes A Shot At Harvey Weinstein

Gibson, who plays Roman Pierce in the Fast & Furious franchise, wasn't thrilled when Johnson decided to go off and make Hobbs & Shaw, the first spin-off in the successful franchise, which delayed Fast and Furious 9.
