When the 21st season of South Park premiered Wednesday, we all knew we were going to be in for a treat. The creators of South Park Matt Stone and Trey Parker have never been one to shy away from controversial subject matter nor foul language. So it seemed only right that they tackle Artificial Intelligence, taking direct aim at Siri and Alexa.

The episode aptly named “White People Renovating Houses” has the boys of South Park speaking on the subject of Charlottesville and the White Supremacy rally that took place there.
The alt-right members blame Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home for taking their “jerbs.” The term “jerbs” originated from a prior season when white people blamed their inability to find jobs on other races.
Eventually, the A.I. comes to life and repeats the boys’ commands. Cartman demanded Alexa say “Simon says suck my big balls in your hairy b—hole,” Now, if you were someone that owned one or both of these devices, your real life device was suddenly activated.
Hundreds of people flocked to Twitter to inform others that their devices had picked up the commands from their televisions, according to NY Daily News.
“Who else’s Alexa’s keep going off every time Cartman says something on the Alexa during this South Park episode?? #SouthPark21,” one user wrote.
“We have an Alexa and a Google Home and South Park repeatedly screwed with both of them tonight,” another user explained.
Other users didn’t seem to find humor in the episode as user @ChrisMn84 wrote, “This @SouthPark episode has set my @amazon Alexa off about 15 times so far. Had to unplug it.”
South Park has angered many people throughout the years, but I don’t think they could have imagined this real-life scenario when they highlighted A.I. technology on their show — or maybe they did.
Below is a video of someone’s Alexa repeating what was said on TV.
