One of the major plusses of South Park's unorthodox, rapid-fire production schedule is that episodes are extremely topical. South Park has gone after everyone from Kanye West to Caitlyn Jenner to Scientology to Mormons, and doesn't exactly hold back in its criticism. Now, with the show about to begin its 20th season, they're taking on a new target: Colin Kaepernick's anthem protests.
In a video released ahead of Wednesday night's premiere, a crowd is singing a version of the national anthem that praises Kaepernick as brave, and calls cops "pigs." The verse then shifts to recognizing that there is a legitimate need for cops.
Looks like this is going to be brutal.
