‘South Park’ to Spoof George Zimmerman Controversy

South Park isn’t afraid of getting animated when it comes to a national controversy.

This week, the Comedy Central series will air “World War Zimmerman,” a parody of the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin trial.

According to the synopsis of the episode, “The world faces death, destruction, chaos and Eric Cartman in all-new episode of ‘South Park’ titled ‘World War Zimmerman’ … Cartman is deeply disturbed by a single person who he sees as a threat to all humanity. He races around the country to put an end to Patient Zero, the ticking time bomb that is Token.”
Token is of course the lone African American character on the series.

“World War Zimmerman” airs Wednesday night at 10 p.m.
