An upcoming “South Park” episode spoofs the controversial George Zimmerman case.

Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder following the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. In July a Florida jury found Zimmerman not guilty.

In a preview clip of the episode, Eric Cartman goes into his dresser and retrieves a gun from a box labeled “Emergency Use Only,” and runs down the street.

The show’s press release says:

“The world faces death, destruction, chaos and Eric Cartman in all-new episode of ‘South Park’ titled ‘World War Zimmerman’ … Cartman is deeply disturbed by a single person who he sees as a threat to all humanity. He races around the country to put an end to Patient Zero, the ticking time bomb that is Token.”

Token is one of the show’s few black characters.

The new “South Park” episode airs Wednesday.
