Following violent threats from a New York group called Revolution Muslim, Comedy Central opted to censor portions of a controversial 'South Park' episode featuring the Prophet Muhammad characterized in a bear suit. The show bleeped the words "Prophet Muhammad" and covered the character's face with a block reading "Censored." Fans were understandably disappointed, with some blaming the two men who created the show.

However, 'South Park' producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone pointed out in a statement Thursday that they had nothing to do with the censorship, saying it "wasn't some meta-joke on our part."
