A rumor circulating around the Internet today says mega publisher Electronic Arts is fuming over the South Park season 14 premiere last week and plans to take Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the cartoon, to court.
The episode, “Sexual Healing,” heavily featured Tiger Woods and wife Elin and the hilarious fallout between them, comedy only South Park can conjure up.
Naturally, a source inside EA, speaking with the Daily Informer, said that EA Sports boss Peter Moore knew of the episode and was ready for the fallout.
"Soon after the airing of the episode the top beef were called in, even Peter Moore was informed of the situation," said the source.
Now, Stone and Parker are familiar with lawsuits. Every episode likely irks one crowd or another. But it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out, if indeed the rumors are true.
