To kick off the 14th season, creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker employ 'an important issue in America right now', the sex addiction outbreak.
"South Park" would not miss the chance to mock on Tiger Woods and his press conference to confirm that he had performed infidelity in the past. The married golfer is animated in the Comedy Central series and the character said he's entitled to enjoy the temptation that comes with being a successful celebrity. Cartman is seen behind him throughout.
The Tiger Woods episode will be the opening of the 14th season which begins Wednesday, March 17. "It's such an important issue in America right now - the sex addiction outbreak," creator Matt Stone told the AP on Friday, March 12. "We're all really concerned about him and hope he gets better."
Stone, who worked on the show with Trey Parker, said that they could make an entire season out of Woods' story. "There's a delicacy in talking about (Woods) that we don't have to worry about," Stone said.
Tiger Woods made a statement before selected audience at TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour, on February 19 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. He admitted to cheating on wife Elin Nordegren and asked for privacy during the difficult time. Stone said he was both fascinated and disgusted by Woods' public apology, but would not reveal how they will translate it on the episode.
