There is more than just gingers that have the ability to be legitimately offended.
Name some names. I can't really think of any besides scientology, but they have done seriously horrible things. Plz note I'm not asking for ppl who have been offended. I'm asking for ppl whose entire existence became a meme through no action of their own other than being featured on the show.

Trans people have consistently been the butt of the joke in extremely disingenuous ways with South Park. And while South Park isn't alone in that depiction it absolutely has been one with lasting negative impact.

On further thought it DOES offend me because it has completely taken over Comedy Central programming. Literally every single day it's getting the Ridiculousness treatment and spammed until it's time for Seinfeld to save us.

Remember when CC had a variety of programs and stand up specials? Better days.

I'll admit the only episode i know of, concerning trans, is the trans athlete one. That episode doesn't really fit the criteria as the trans in sports topic was already being publicly debated. Southpark was actual really slow with that episode. Again im not talking about ppl who just were made fun of.

It's a 100% harmless comedy show that occasionally makes a good point.

It's harmless in the sense that I don't believe (and studies back this up) a single piece of media drives people to do terrible things, but it's a highly influential show within the male teen through middle age demographic - so how much harm it does is subjective depending on how much you believe culture influences behavior and whether or not you think it's a positive or negative influence.

I would love to know one or two of the occasional "good points" it makes?

If you're offended, that means it's working.

This is what I mean by that childish trolling mentality that the show pushes.

Not offended.

The Tourette Syndrome episode had me disappointed in Matt and Trey at first, until they showed the other forms besides swearing. Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy wasn't funny to me in real time but I don't have a problem with them doing it.

It doesnt offend me but it does dismay me in its intellectual dishonesty and refusal to engage in meaningful self-reflection.

South Park did get into this where if we offend everyone then we aren't picking sides. Surprised it has not been under more controversy these years.

I thought the trans women in sports episode would have lead to a rapid mass cancellation across Twitter

I don't remember much criticism of that episode at all

Tegridy Farms got old. I don't like new Randy.

It did. But just when I think theyve finally lost touch they land a perfect episode. The one with the competing contractors who become billionaires was hysterical.

the self reflection happens at the end, simultaneously with corny music and a mob of South Park.
I cant remember exactly what but I do know some of their jokes were about us Alaska natives

not really offended by it but I honestly think its not very funny as a whole comedy show

other than that I dont care about the show but my friends like it so

You can thank Paramount + and Max for the lack of new content, now it's Rerun Central

And south park didn't offend me ever, but I was shocked to see how edgier it was compared to Family Guy lol

Nope. But it's not my type of humor anymore. The main thing that made me laugh was the reoccurring "they killed Kenny" gag.

I always feel South Park is like a kid jumping up and down saying 'look! Look how offensive I'm being!'

And I don't really listen, and reply 'yes, yes, very shocking, now run along'.

It doesn't offend me, but I think it feeds young men some bad messages and glorifies nihilism while downplaying white supremacists and attacking LGBTQ people with tired stereotypes.

South Park, and the mentality behind it is a sort of childish one where they make stuff so over the top deliberately provocative, and then declare any criticism as "the PC/woke crowd getting offended lolz" - and it's like ...fuck off Parker and Stone, your entire show is whining about any small inconvenience to your privileged lives while relentlessly attacking public figures that "offend" them using their own stupid metric.

How do you even glorify nihilism?

No, it doesn't offend me. The again, I am a stupid Jew.

The only time I was offended was when the it was time for Puerto Ricans to get roasted... but they didn't actually roast Puerto Ricans. The one time I have an interest in my culture and they skip me!

Common sense says it may not taste good, but it'll make a turd.
the show has the most minimal effort, most uninteresting kind of political commentary that i cannot imagine why people think it's funny most of the time. it doesn't help that they reuse the same few jokes throughout entire episodes
I haven't seen it in awhile but it certainly felt more relevant than the Simpsons and Family Guy fwiw these days. I also never tried the rpgs hah I but I hear they are quite good.

I guess I don't like South Park that much.

The stuff with Chef did seem mean spirited. I think he just didn't want to do the show anymore because he felt it was offensive to his beliefs. So he just kinda went away. *smirks* this was like pre social media. I should just look it up but I am on mobile and eating and a little tired.

Gawd I'm such a normie

There is an interview out there with, Stone, Parker and i think Isaac Hayes son, done long after the fact.

Essentially, Hayes got a stroke or something like that, and someone in his family took the liberty to quit the show for him without permission
