More proof bullying has become the issue du jour: Cartman and his cohorts are tackling the subject this week on "South Park."
Wednesday's episode, titled "Butterballs," comes a few days before the Weinstein Co. "Bully" documentary expands to more theaters with a PG-13 rating. "Bully" was originally released unrated because the Weinstein Co. refused to release it under its original R rating.
(The company removed some curse words to get the PG-13 rating.)
Comedy Central's official episode description, in which the ever-vulnerable Butters is the bullying victim: "Stan wants to raise awareness about the dangers of bullying by shooting a big dance video. Will he able to handle the pressure that goes along with the notoriety of taking on such a worthy cause?"
