'South Park' creators investigated by Scientologists?Add to Favorites | South Park
A former member of the church posted on his blog that the Scientologists had the pair investigated by the organization's Office of Special Affairs, including identifying some of Parker and Stone's celebrity friends and reportedly trying to find "some viable strings that can be pulled." According to the Village Voice, when the investigation failed, they sought a young filmmaker to work as a mole at the show.
This isn't going to do much for the church's reputation. A sense of humor is the publicity money can't buy. Parker and Stone, meanwhile, are now the proud owners of nine Tony awards for their Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon."
