In news of things that are bound to happen; the creators of South Park are being sued.
The most recent claim against Matt Stone and Trey Parker comes from a man who says he created the character idea for “The Lollipop King” three years before Matt and Trey used the same character in their infamous three part “Imaginationland” series of episodes.
The character Matt and Trey created is allegedly a rip-off of a character called Big Bad Lollipop from Exavier Wardlaw’s show “The Lollipop Forest.”
In his suit, Wardlaw claims “The Lollipop Forest” is a wholesome family show – and it’s value was diminished when South Park ripped off the idea and exposed the character to “unwholesome language and sexual innuendo.”
For those who never saw the South Park episode, the Lollipop King “gets choked out by a Storm Trooper… witnesses the carnage of a suicide bomber… and gets a front row seat as Kyle perform a sexual act of an oral nature on Cartman’s nether region.” So, fair enough, they are right in their claims that it was rather unwholesome.
According to the suit, Exavier is suing for copyright infringement and is demanding that South Park remove all traces of The Lollipop King from the “Imaginationland” episodes.
So far, Matt and Trey have yet to issue a statement regarding the suit.
