Butters has a new business on this week’s episode of “South Park” and Kyle is none too happy about it.
This week’s “South Park” episode will tackle the vaping epidemic, which sees Butters selling vape pens to school children, including Kyle’s brother, Ike.
“Butters, you understand this stuff is an epidemic at our school?” Kyle asks Butters, after he, Cartman, Kenny and Stan confront him in the clip. “Yea, and at five bucks a pop we’re going to be rich!” Butters responds.
According to Comedy Central’s description of the episode, “Butters is selling vape pens and all kinds of fruity-flavored vape accessories at school. Meanwhile, Randy decides he should move the family to the country and take up farming.”
“South Park” has also taken the topical approach with the first three episodes of the current 22nd season, previously tackling the prevalence of school shootings in the U.S., the Catholic Church’s ongoing abuse scandal and Supreme Court Justice Brett Cavanaugh’s confirmation. Last week’s episode also got in a dig at “The Simpsons.“
“South Park” airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on Comedy Central.
