Das war mir neu. Ich hab immer gedacht, dass Isaac Hayes damals South Park verließ, da sie Witze über Scientology machten. In einer Oral-History über die Serie erzählt nun sein Sohn, dass sein Vater damals unter den Folgen eines Schlaganfalls litt und die Entscheidung von Personen in seinem Umfeld getroffen wurde:
„Isaac Hayes did not quit South Park; someone quit South Park for him. What happened was that in January 2006 my dad had a stroke and lost the ability to speak. He really didn’t have that much comprehension, and he had to relearn to play the piano and a lot of different things. He was in no position to resign under his own knowledge. At the time, everybody around my father was involved in Scientology — his assistants, the core group of people. So someone quit South Park on Isaac Hayes‘ behalf. We don’t know who.“
Auch sonst eine recht lesenswerte Story!
