Tom Cruise is using his influence in canceling a scheduled repeat of the South Park episode of “Trapped in the Closet.” A snippet of the video is above. It’s probably not work friendly.
Sources from inside Paramount and South Park Studios report that parent company Viacom pulled last night’s scheduled repeat of the high-rated “Trapped in the Closet” episode after the humorless Scientologist movie star Tom Cruise threatened to cancel all publicity for Mission Impossible:3 if Comedy Central aired the episode that satirizes Scientology and mocks his sexuality again.
The South Park boys are said to be angry, but will probably get revenge with the manner in which they deal with Scientologist Isaac Hayes’ departure from the show.
Tom is set to share his wisdom at Yahoo! Campus on March 21st as part of their “influential speakers” series. Here’s hoping he’ll touch on the Comedy Central/South Park debacle.
