Four months after SOUTH PARK creators/provocateurs Trey Parker and Matt Stone announced that an iPhone game based on their hit TV show was in the works, the project appears to be deader than the oft-killed Kenny. Sez the duo:
We first announced our iPhone App back in October, after we submitted
the Application to Apple for approval. After a couple of attempts to
get the application approved, we are sad to say that our app has been
rejected. According to Apple, the content was "potentially offensive."
But Apple did admit that the standards would evolve, citing that when
iTunes first launched it didn't sell any music with explicit lyrics.* At
this point, we are sad to say, the app is dead in the water. Sorry,
South Park fans.
*Or apps with bouncing boobs and fart noises, for that matter…
One waits for the ever-restrained Cartman to launch into his rendition of "The App Store Is A Big Fat Bitch (In D Minor)."
