Bill Gates Gets ‘RIP Steve Jobs’ Tattoo (In South Park)


Last night’s South Park episode depicted a shirtless Bill Gates — revealing the Microsoft co-founder to have a tattoo reading “RIP Steve Jobs 2011.”

A screen capture taken from the episode — which concerned warring Black Friday factions fighting over next-generation games consoles — was quickly circulated on Twitter.

A previous episode showed Gates ordering the assassination of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, proclaiming that, “Weakness is believing that competition is healthy.”

A caricature of Jobs was featured in a 2011 episode of South Park entitled “HUMANCENTiPAD.”
