“South Park” took a shot at Harvey Weinstein in its latest episode, a week after the disgraced movie mogul was mocked by a comedian at a New York comedy club, where he made an appearance.In Wednesday’s episode, “Tegridy Farms Halloween Special,” Randy Marsh starts hallucinating after he smokes tainted weed that was laced with chemicals by his daughter, Shelly, who tried to destroy his marijuana crops. The altered pot makes him see scary images, including a zombie Winnie the Pooh (a reference to an earlier episode that was critical of China). He then calls the police to tell them he is being raped by Weinstein.At the end of the episode, Randy wakes up a few days later and realizes that none of it was real until he finds a used condom in the trash.Also Read: HBO Max Lands 'South Park' Reruns in Massive $500 Million Streaming DealLast week, a confrontation between Weinstein and Zoe Stuckless, an actor-playwright, who objected to his presence at an event for actors ended with Stuckless — not Weinstein — being ejected.Stuckless and several women attending the event called out Weinstein for appearing at the speakeasy-style event hosted by Actor’s Hour at the Downtime Bar in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
