16. Kyle Won't Call Caitlyn Jenner a 'Hero' (Season 19, Episode 1)

Given how much Parker and Stone hate being told who to lionize, it was probably inevitable that South Park would eventually take on Caitlyn Jenner, who went from being a reality-TV star to a cultural icon overnight when she came out as transgender. In the Season 19 premiere, Kyle clashes with the community when he won’t toe the line and say publicly that the Olympic champ is "stunning and brave." The show has followed Kyle’s lead, questioning what the creators felt was a knee-jerk heroism on the part of the political left by reminding viewers repeatedly that she’s a raging right-winger; the episode's references to a fatal car accident that Jenner was involved in didn't exactly speak well to the unquestioning public worship as well.
