A radical Muslim group has warned the creators of "South Park" that they could face violent retribution for depicting the prophet Muhammad in a bear suit during last week's episode.
New York (AP) - A radical Muslim group has warned the creators of "South Park" that they could face violent retribution for depicting the prophet Muhammad in a bear suit during last week's episode.
 
The website RevolutionMuslim.com has since been taken down, but a cached version shows the message to "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
 
The posting by Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee warns Parker and Stone that they could face the same fate as Theo Van Gogh. The Dutch filmmaker was murdered in 2004 after directing a film written by a Muslim woman who rejects the Prophet Muhammad as a guide for today's morality.
 
Al-Amrikee says his post "is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."
 
Comedy Central and the producers would not comment. CNN first reported the posting.
