Kanye West plays a gay fish in the new South Park video game, The Fractured But Whole.

The show has a long-running joke since 2009 which refers to the rapper as a gay fish.

Now, the Kanye spoof is front and centre in the trailer for the game, which also mocks West’s own game Only One.

The trailer, which seems to have very little to do with the actual South Park game, shows Kanye as a gay fish on a mission to get his mother into heaven.

A rainbow-farting unicorn carries the pair the pearly gates in the trailer which is cut short as Kanye’s fish mom passes through the pearly gates while swearing obscenely in true South Park fashion.

This part of the trailer is a direct spoof of Only One as his mother, Donda, flies through heaven’s gates in the trailer.

Donda died in 2007 after complications of cosmetic surgery.

West previously commented on the depiction of himself in South Park and insisted that being painted as an egomaniac hurt his feelings.

In 2013, the show revived the character in an episode in which he was called a “recovering gay fish”.

The new trailer from South Park has split opinions as some feel the trailer is grotesquely offensive whilst others find it “hilarious”.

South Park’s game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, from October 17.
