I know boys and Chef!  I’m upset and horrified too! 

Isaac Hayes, that bad mother-shut-yaw-mouth! and voice of the popular South Park character Chef, has quit the show because Shaft will not tolerate critical analysis of religion!:

“There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins,” the 63-year-old soul singer and outspoken Scientologist said.

“Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored,” he continued. “As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices.”

He’s just pissed cause they mocked his “religion” (brilliantly, I might add) in the episode “Trapped in the Closet.”  Matt Stone, the co-creator of South Park, agrees.  He told the Associated Press, “This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology… He has no problem — and he’s cashed plenty of checks — with our show making fun of Christians.  [We] never heard a peep out of Isaac in any way until we did Scientology. He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin.”

Ouch!

Well, no matter what reason Hayes is leaving, I’ll definitely miss his chocolate salty balls.
