She drew a cartoon criticizing Comedy Central and now a Seattle artist is part of a controversy that has gone viral.

Her political cartoon took aim at Comedy Central for censoring a recent episode of the show South Park. It sparked a viral event set to happen May 20th - it's called "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day". The cartoonist, whom we're not identifying, says she regrets it and wants nothing to do with the event.

The controversy started after South Park depicted the prophet Mohammed wearing a bear suit. An Islamic website posted a warning to the show's creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, saying "We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid. They will probably end up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show", referencing the Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 after a documentary he made about violence against Muslim women.

Following this, Comedy Central censored the next South Park episode that included bleeping out a reference to Mohammed, and covering the prophet's image with the word "censored".

The Seattle woman who draws for City Arts magazine then drew her cartoon, which sparked a Facebook page asking people to draw the prophet Mohammed on May 20th.

Q13 FOX News visited her home Wednesday and she said," I just draw cartoons. I want this all to go away".

David Horsey is a political cartoonist for the Seattle P-I says, "We're used to getting nasty comments every day from outraged people. We know what you can stir up."

Horsey has drawn cartoons about radical Islamists before, but says you have to be careful. "On the extreme of this issue are people who have no tolerance about anything that questions their view of the world and are willing to kill people," says Horsey.

Hisham Farajallah, with the Islamic Center of Seattle, says he knows not everyone gets it, but in the Muslim religion it's simple.

"People of Islamic faith must not under any circumstances depict or belittle or allow anything to insult or humiliate any prophet regardless. You have no idea how they react to the faith so I think it's irresponsible to provoke any actions which could cause violence," says Farajallah.

The irony is that the artist who stirred this pot doesn't want to talk about it now. She did publish a new cartoon. It says things like "Good thing I'm married to a sumo wrestler" and "This was always about the freedom to draw what we want in the USA".

After all, that is what editorial cartoonists do.

"This is free speech. It's our right. It's a human right and there's no way people should feel threatened for doing satire," says David Horsey.

Horsey says he signed a petition along with other editorial cartoonists around the country supporting the creators of South Park.
