‘South Park’ Takes Aim at Kaepernick’s National Anthem Protest With Brutally Funny Parody

In traditional “South Park” fashion, the hit animated series is taking on one of the most controversial and divisive issues of the moment to kick off its 20th season.

In a new “South Park” teaser clip, the town’s residents pack into a stadium and sing a new anthem that incorporates San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick has received harsh criticism and support for refusing to stand for the national anthem until the country stops “oppressing” black people.

Here are the lyrics of the anthem that will be featured in the new “South Park” episode:

Colin Kaepernick is great
Cops are pigs, cops are pigs
Wait, someone just took my stuff, I need to call the cops
Oh, no, I just said cops are pigs
Who’s gonna help me get my stuff?
Why did I listen to Colin Kaepernick, He’s not even any good
Oh, I just got all my stuff back
Cops are pigs again, cops are pigs
Colin Kaepernick’s a good backup

The episode will air Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central. Check out the teaser below:
