Re: Isaac Hayes quits SouthPark -- Update (Fox News Lies -- Again)
> From: The FoolLies:
Adding another wrinkle to the situation, on Monday FoxNews.com reported
that Hayes had no intention of quitting "South Park," but someone had
quit in his name. The report, which cited various "sources," claimed
that Hayes was unable to quit the show because he was recovering from a
stroke he had suffered on January 17, and stated that "it's ...
ridiculous to think Hayes ... would suddenly turn against the show
because they were poking fun at Scientology."
Amy Harnell, a spokesperson for Hayes, told MTV News the Fox News
report was "definitely not true" and that Hayes' decision to quit was
"his and his alone." She added that Hayes was never hospitalized with a
stroke, but rather "spent a few days in a hospital because of a high
blood-pressure condition with medical complications."
And while it's not totally clear if Chef is really dead (at the end of
the episode, he's seen being resurrected, Darth-Vader style), Hayes'
spokesperson wants it to be known that the musician is "100-percent"
finished with "South Park."
"He's finished talking about it. Basically, his feeling is, if [Stone
and Parker] felt the need to do episodes like this one, then that's
fine," Harnell said. "He's done with it, and he's already turning his
attention to a series of upcoming commercial projects."
