Boycott Tom Cruise!

It shouldn't be that hard. Most of his movies suck. He's not much of an actor. And America seems to be tiring of his nonsense.

Now he's really gone too far, and the reprecussions should be fascinating.

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.

Not only is this the first time that the South Park creators have been officially censored in their ten hit seasons with Comedy Central, Viacom officials also reportedly ordered Matt Stone and Trey Parker not to discuss the reason why their episode was cancelled.

I can't imagine Stone and Parker will adhere to that edict (witness the tongue-lashing they gave Isaac Hayes). I trust they won't. My guess: this will be the last season for "South Park" on Comedy Central. Hopefully some other broadcasting entity, one that's not beholden to the gay Scientologist, will pick up the show. And when they do, expect a riotous send-up of this whole affair.

In the meantime, I'm serious: BOYCOTT TOM CRUISE! You're doing yourself a favor, never having to watch the likes of "War of the Worlds" or "Top Gun" again. And I have faith that "MI:3" will be just as tedious and soulless as its two predecessors.

***Watch the "South Park" Scientology episode here. And remember ...



  1. Frankly, after the way Cruise "promoted" War of the Worlds, you'd think Paramount would be more than happy to let the likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman do the rounds or let the Mission Impossible name do the work it's self

  2. I'm in ... after destroying the love of my life, Katie Holmes, I wish nothing but failure for him. Bastard!

  3. And I was SO planning on seeing Mission Impossible 3....

  4. There was a Mission Impossible TWO?
