South Park has made fun of various celebrities, but only so many have commented on their representation of such celebrities.
One of the celebrities who addressed the way the show insulted her was Barbra Streisand. This is why Streisand felt the spoof of her show was bad for the world – and how it surprised one of the producers of the show.
Why does Barbra Streisand like humor about herself, but not the ‘South Park’ satire?
In all manner of bizarre ways, South Park has depicted celebrities.
Mel Gibson, for instance, has been depicted as a masochist who behaves like Daffy Duck, and Kim Kardashian as a hobbit who looks stunning using PhotoShop. “Streisand turns into a mechanical dinosaur named “MechaStreisand” in an early episode called “MechaStreisand.” Other celebrities such as Leonard Maltin and Sidney Poitier transform into giant robots and attempt to kill MechaStreisand, who is ultimately defeated by Robert Smith of The Cure’s robotic version.
The episode is a spoof of monster Japanese movies such as Godzilla! The Monster King and Mothra.
The whole episode is, needless to say, very foolish. Streisand, however, felt the episode was very toxic for kids.
The shocking information behind the cloning of her dog by Barbra Streisand make you doubt everything.
“I wasn’t even aware of this show until I read in Time magazine that they were using me in a very negative way,” Streisand told Mirabella. Let me tell I like satire and parody and I loved the In & Out movie. He made me laugh. It wasn’t mean. It wasn’t malicious.
But I wonder if shows like South Park and Beavis and Butt-head, especially among children, do not contribute to the skepticism and negativity in our community.
These young people are forming their perceptions and maybe they’re coming away with the impression that the embodiment of self-centeredness and greed is every woman who dares to succeed.
And, particularly for young girls, that would be very unfortunate.
How ‘South Park’ has responded
And how was ‘South Park’ reacting to Streisand? Predictably, they mercilessly made fun of her.
In Spooky Vision, a later episode named “Spookyfish” aired. What does it look like in an episode airing on Spooky Vision? It’s just a regular episode of the show, but with side-by-side photographs of Streisand’s face.
It’s very typical of the style of humor in South Park. Streisand, as in a later episode where religious figures such as Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha and Joseph Smith attempt to overcome her, will continue to be a source of ridicule for the show.
Why didn’t Barbra Streisand want a record label to record her last hit song?
How Barbra Streisand surprised one of the producers of the show
The end of Streisand’s relationship with South Park wasn’t Spooky Vision.
A musical called The Book of Mormon was written by the makers of South Park – Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Stone announced in an interview with Esquire that Streisand, a legend on Broadway, chose to see this special show on Broadway. “Barbra Streisand came last night,” Stone said. The cast told me she was there, and I was like,’ No f*cking way.” With one of their early jokes, the producers of South Park offended Streisand, but Streisand ultimately managed to shock Stone with her presence alone.
