The Lollipop King had some nasty things done to him..
TMZ reports that Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, are being sued for ripping off the character of The Lollipop King for the 2007 "Imaginationland" episodes from a show called The Lollipop Forest.
The man, Exavier Wardlaw, claims he made the show years ago, only for South Park to steal his character. The character is called Big Bad Lollipop in Wardlaw's show.
Wardlaw says that Lollipop Forest is a family show and the value was hurt when the Lollipop King is exposed to "unwholesome language and sexual innuendo." During the episode, the Lollipop King is choked out by a Storm Trooper, watches an attack from a suicide bomber and watches Kyle perform oral sex on Cartman.
The suit was filed in federal court in Philadelphia. Exavier is suing for copyright infringement and wants the two to remove all traces of Lollipop King from the episodes.
