Mr. Hankey found himself in Roseanne's shoes.
South Park is known for tackling polarizing topics, but they may have outdone themselves with their latest episode. The hit adult cartoon comedy series found a way take shots at Roseanne Barr, Brett Kavanaugh, and The Simpsons all in one episode. Barr found herself struggling to reestablish her career after she tweeted a racist comment about former White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett. She compared the politician to a mix between an ape and a Muslim child, which resulted in her show being canceled. Afterward, Barr tried to blame the tweet on Ambien.
South Park chose to use their walking piece of poop to emulate Roseanne's predicament. Entitled "The Problem With Poo," the episode stars Mr. Hankey. The talking poop tweeted out disparaging comments about townspeople, and then blamed Ambien on his lack of online etiquette. He was soon fired and treated as an outcast. The episode also featured a mocking jab at Brett Kavanaugh's testimony in the wake of the sexual assault accusations brought against him.
As if that wasn't enough, South Park threw the cherry on top by insulting The Simpsons as well. After Mr. Hankey is kicked out of South Park, he goes to the only town where he claims racism can still exist without repercussion. The animated turd heads over to Springfield, where he is greeted by The Simpsons' characters. Apu was in attendance, which was a nod to Simpsons' creator Matt Groening refusing to remove the character after several viewers decided he was a racist representation of South Asian culture.
