Saddam Hussein, while held captive by US forces, was repeatedly forced to watch “South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut”, which shows him as gay, as well as the boyfriend of Satan
“Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, were given a signed photo of Saddam Hussein by US marines after the former Iraqi leader was shown their movie in prison.
During his captivity, US marines forced Saddam, who was executed in 2006, to repeatedly watch the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut, which shows him as gay, as well as the boyfriend of Satan. He was also regularly depicted in a similar manner during the TV series.The admission comes with the show’s 13th season already running in the US. It will celebrate its 12th anniversary later this year.The show, which satirises a wide range of topics, including religion, sexuality and mental illness, has won a number of awards including three Emmys for Outstanding Animated Programme.Recent episodes have seen Barack Obama using his Presidential victory as a way to steal jewels from Washington in an Oceans 11-style heist.It also recently depicted the United States Treasury as deciding economic measures by cutting the head off a chicken and letting it run on a game show style board, landing on a decision.
Stone, 37, said both he and Parker, 39, were most proud of the signed Saddam photo, given to them by the US Army’s 4th Infantry Division.He said: “”We’re very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means. Its one of our biggest highlights.””I have it on pretty good information from the marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Saddam the movie.””Over and over again – which is a pretty funny thought.””That’s really adding insult to injury.”””
