Jesse Curtis Morton, a Muslim convert from New York, pleaded guilty Thursday to communicating threats against Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the writers of the often-controversial comedy South Park.
Morton, 33, was a founder of the radical website Revolution Muslim, on which he posted the threats. The threats stemmed from South Park’s 200th episode, which depicted the prophet Muhammad dressed in a bear costume. Depictions of Muhammad are considered offensive to most Muslims.
