Cruise-Bashing South Park Episode to Air Again

by at . Comments

Comedy Central has scheduled a July 19 airdate for its controversial South Park episode, "Trapped in the Closet" -- also known as the one in which Tom Cruise and his beloved Scientology are mercilessly lampooned.

The episode, which first aired in November 2005, and the title of which is based on the bizarre, 12-part, R&B opera by R. Kelly, was pulled from the South Park repeat rotation. Supposedly, this came about because a displeased Cruise threatened to not promote M:I-III for Paramount, which is owned by Viacom, the same parent company as Comedy Central. But now that the film has hit the big screen, the network is putting the episode back on the air.

Which is a good thing. It's not unfunny.

Speaking of Cruise and his reclusive, brainwashed wife-to-be, Katie Holmes, a spokesperson for the pair has given the Associated Press a statement regarding baby Suri. The baby, supposedly born in April, has yet to be seen in public, leading to widespread speculation that Suri Cruise does not exist.

"If and when [Cruise and Katie Holmes] do make a decision [to show Suri to the public], it will be at their discretion and not anybody else's," his rep said.
