Getting honest with Matt Stone

SOUTH PARK co-creator Matt Stone just signed (along with partner Trey Parker) a $900 million deal to make more episodes of South Park and 14 movies for ViacomCBS. The deal is ViacomCBS' effort to boost the content offering on it's streamer Paramount+.

This week Stone gave a very honest interview with Bloomberg. Here are a few of my favourite quotes from his very honest interview:

Do you worry at all about “cancel culture”?
No. As you can see from this deal, we have ‘f--k you’ money now.
What’s the biggest change in your life now that you have all this money?
We’ve been rich for a long time. We have nice houses and cars. Even this giant deal won’t change my day-to-day. I’m not going to buy a new watch.
Do you have a favorite streaming service?
I haven’t watched a lot of Paramount+, but looking at the ads, it looks okay.
‘South Park’ Co-Creator Matt Stone on his $900 Million Deal
“We’re not anxious to end the show. But someday we will sell that interest.”
