Tom Cruise South Park Episode Axed

As Cruise threatens to sue over gay story-line…

TV bosses have fearfully cut an episode of South Park which outs a fictional Tom Cruise character as homosexual. It was called Trapped in the Closet.

The cartoon shows Cruise refusing to come out of the closet, with Nicole Kidman and John Travolta trying to coax him out.

Kidman cajoles him, saying: Dont you think this has gone on long enough? Its time for you to come out of the closet. Youre not fooling anyone.

The piss-take also features Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard criticising Cruises acting skills.

The show was aired last year, but according to the Sun, TV bosses are too scared to run it again because the petit Top Gun star is believed to have threatened legal action.

An insider confided: Tom was said not to like the episode and Paramount just didnt dare risk showing it again. Its a shame that UK audiences will never see it because its very funny.
