People can't quite believe how messed up the South Park movie was, having realised the controversy around Lil Nas X giving Satan a lap dance is perhaps tame in comparison.
One Twitter user posted a screengrab from the South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, which was released in 1999 and followed Stan, Kyle, Eric and Kenny as they sneak into a R-rated movie - only for their parents to wage war against Canada for corrupting their kids.
While all that's going on, Kenny also tries to stop a prophecy involving the Devil and Saddam Hussein, who are plotting to take over the world.
Twitter user Nazeer Art'aud (@nazeerartaud) posted a photo from the film showing Satan and Hussein cuddling up in bed.
They tweeted: "Y'all worried about Lil Nas X giving the devil a lap dance? When I was 12, I witnessed the devil in a gay relationship w/ Saddam Hussein. Your children will be fine."
One person commented: "YOOO I FORGOT ABOUT THIS SOUTH PARK DID THAT."
Another said: "Omfg right?!?! I was so shocked when I first saw this lmfao."
A third wrote: "Aw yeah lmfaooo THIS s*** was actually wild."
One Twitter user joked that Satan was 'one of the most wholesome characters in South Park', while another argued that the franchise really was damaging.
They said: "The uproar over Lil Nas X is stupid, but South Park actually did damage to our society.
"It convinced two whole generations of dudebros that it's cool to have no principles and lame to care about progressive causes."
Many others, however, said they simply found it 'hilarious', while it looks like Lil Nas X is also pretty pleased with the comparison.
He tweeted yesterday to say that the controversy for his lap dancing scenes in the video for 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)' - and the recently-announced Satanic trainers - would actually make a good premise for an episode of South Park.
The star wrote: "This gone be a good a** South Park episode lmao."
He has made it clear he won't be saying sorry for any of the backlash he's received either, having trolled the internet with a fake apology video.
In a YouTube video titled 'Lil Nas X Apologizes for Satan Shoe', he says: "OK, guys, I see everybody's been talking about this shoe, and I just want to come forward and say..."
The clip then cuts to a lap dance scene from the video for his new song, 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)', which opens with the words 'f*** it'.
