South Park is not really known for being kind to anyone, be it Princess Diana, Hitler, Al Gore or Steve Irwin! The episode shows Irwin walking around a fancy dress party in hell with a stingray barb sticking out of his chest.
A South Park spokesman defended the episode that shows callous disrespect for the grieving Irwin family.
“We have offended people in the past and probably will again,” the spokesman said.
I have seen many episodes of South Park, where they poke fun at almost anyone they can lay their hands on, but this one has really taken me by shock. The least they could do is wait for a couple of months before airing such a spoof! Think about Irwin’s family if not anyone else.
