An Islamic website is targeting the creators of the television series South Park, after an episode that aired last week depicted the Prophet Mohammed disguised in a bear suit, CNN reported on Sunday.

The website, Revolutionmuslim.com, was the subject of a CNN investigation last year over its support for “jihad” or holy war against the West and for praising al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

According to CNN, the website posted an entry on Sunday that warned South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they will “probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show,” making a reference to Dutch filmmaker murdered by an Islamic extremist in 2004 after making film on Islam and violence against women.
