South Park Is Set To Tackle The Ozempic Craze & It Looks Exactly As Classy As You’d Expect

South Park: The End Of Obesity South Park Ozempic Special

Paramount+ has just revealed the title and storyline of the next South Park special, called South Park: The End Of Obesity. 

It looks like it’ll provide scathing commentary on the sudden rise of Ozempic. If for some reason you’ve been living under a rock, its intended use is for Type 2 Diabetes, but celebs have embraced it as a miracle weight-loss drug

Considering South Park isn’t afraid of controversy, I reckon this special is gonna hit. It revolves around Cartman needing to take “drastic measures” to lose weight, turning to “life-changing medicine” called semaglutide. 

I’ve rounded up everything we know about South Park: The End Of Obesity below.
