Ari Shaffir on Kobe Bryant’s Death: “Hollywood Liberals Enjoy Rooting For the Lakers More Than They Dislike Rape”

Comedian’s comments spark outrage.

Published

Comedian Ari Shaffir has stoked controversy after he reacted to the death of Kobe Bryant by tweeting, “Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape.”

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter were among nine people tragically killed when a helicopter crashed in California in foggy weather yesterday.

While most people responded by celebrating Bryant’s basketball career, Shaffir took to Twitter to call out “Hollywood liberals” for glamorizing Bryant despite allegations that he raped a 19-year-old girl.

The 19-year-old hotel employee claimed Bryant raped her in the summer of 2003 but the case was later dropped after the accuser refused to testify at the trial.

Bryant apologized to the girl but said he believed the encounter to be consensual and later settled with her in a separate civil lawsuit.

“Kobe Bryant died 23 years too late today,” tweeted Shaffir. “He got away with rape because all the Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape. Big ups to the hero who forgot to gas up his chopper. I hate the Lakers. What a great day! #Fuckthelakers.”

In a separate video, Shaffir stated, “A guy who got away with rape got his today, Kobe Bryant is gone!”

The comedian’s comments provoked the fury of others on Twitter.

“He’s got 4 kids man. It’s one thing to go dark if it’s genuinely funny, but this is just horrible. Like honestly how little empathy do you have?” asked one.

“That rape allegation never added up to anything, kinda like your shit comedy career,” added another.

“I’m a conservative, and this is too far, even for you. I hope you never get another gig. You’re a terrible person,” tweeted another.

However, Shaffir was by no means alone in the manner of his response. Numerous other prominent Twitter personalities and commentators reacted to Bryant’s death by bringing up the rape allegations against him.

Shaffir later claimed “I was hacked,” in what was obviously a sarcastic tweet.

Netflix to Fire Another 150 Employees as Subscriber Base Continues to Decline

Wokeflix is going the way of CNN+.

Streaming giant Netflix confirmed it was firing a further 150 employees in response to slowing revenue growth and a massive loss of subscribers.

“As we explained on earnings, our slowing revenue growth means we are also having to slow our cost growth as a company,” a Netflix representative told CNBC.

“So sadly, we are letting around 150 employees go today, mostly US-based. These changes are primarily driven by business needs rather than individual performance, which makes them especially tough as none of us want to say goodbye to such great colleagues. We’re working hard to support them through this very difficult transition.”

The new round of dismissals comes after Netflix fired an entire team of writers for the Tudum website, almost all of whom were “women of color.”

Netflix has lost over 200,000 subscribers this year and is set to hemorrhage another 2 million by the end of the year, while its share price has plummeted by 70 per cent since January.

Price hikes, the end of lockdown and increasing competition has badly impacted the company.

In addition to a worsening economic picture, Netflix has been plagued by its takeover by the woke mob, who relentlessly protested Dave Chapelle’s comedy special.

The decision to platform the 2020 movie Cuties, which sexualized underage girls, also had a negative impact on the company’s reputation.

Last month, Elon Musk asserted that Netflix embracing “the woke mind virus”‘ is making it “unwatchable”.

The tech giant wasted a whopping $75 million on signing up Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to make more preachy, woke content that no one will watch.

If things continue in the same vain, it might not be long before Netflix goes the same way as CNN+.

Oh no, how awful.

Romania Claims Eurovision Changed Their Vote to Give First Place to Ukraine

EBU replaced the votes of six different countries.

Published

Romanian broadcaster TVR has accused the European Broadcasting Union of assigning a different set of scores to the ones they provided, incorrectly giving the highest score to Ukraine, which went on to win the competition.

The Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra easily won the competition, finishing on 631 points, with the United Kingdom in second place with 466 points.

However, despite the margin of victory, the official Romanian Eurovision representatives complained that the EBU ignored their vote to give Moldova first place and instead awarded it to Ukraine.

“We were surprised to discover that the result of the Romanian jury’s vote was not taken into account in the calculation of the final ranking,” said TVR in a statement. “The organizers assigned a different set of points to the participants of the final, on behalf of the jury of our country. We specify that the Romanian jury decided to give maximum score to the representatives of Moldova.”

Representatives of each country also normally appear on the live broadcast to announce their country’s voting results, but Romania’s Eda Marcus was nowhere to be seen.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) responded by claiming they had noticed “irregular voting patterns” which “forced them to replace scores from six countries: Azerbaijan, Georgia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and San Marino.”

“In order to comply with the voting instructions of the competition, the EBU collaborated with its voting partner to calculate a replacement aggregate result for each country concerned, both for the second semi-final and for the grand final (calculated on the basis of the results of other countries with a similar voting history),” they said in a statement.

In the final vote tally, neither Romania or Moldova awarded any points to each other, something that would never happen in reality.

TVR said Eurovision organizers had “replaced the jury score in Romania with a ‘substitute’ calculated in a non-transparent way,” and had not even informed them of what they were doing during the competition.

Although part of the vote is also down to the viewing public, the claims suggest that there may have been some chicanery behind the scenes to ensure Ukraine won the competition, thereby fulfilling a preset narrative to support ‘the current thing’.

The Eurovision Song Contest is notoriously political and has been beset by similar voting scandals in the past.

‘Family Sex Show’ Aimed at Kids Cancelled After Backlash

Production company claimed its staff received threats and abuse.

Published

A production called ‘The Family Sex Show’ aimed at children aged 5 and over that was described by the theatre company responsible as “an alternative to porn” has been cancelled after thousands of people signed a petition opposing it.

The company invited parents to bring their kids to the show, advertising that there would be full nudity and discussion of topics completely unsuitable for children.

The show was due to be performed at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory next month but that venue has become the second to bow out after a backlash.

Typically, the company is claiming the deluge of criticism they received included “unprecedented threats and abuse” from “extremists” and that this is why the event was called off.

A petition signed by over 38,000 people stated, “Children should not be de-desensitised to the sight of naked adult bodies or introduced to topics surrounding adult sexual pleasure which this production promotes and celebrates.”

“This is nothing more than a blatant and extremely concerning attempt to sexualise children prematurely and is abusive.”

The explicit show was funded by the Arts Council, which is in turn funded by the taxpayer.

The company claimed they had liased with “child safeguarding experts,” however, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children had apparently never heard of it.

Susan Glaholm, a social worker in mental health and child protection, expressed her concerns about the show, noting, “I am compelled to say there is something seriously wrong in our society and culture if we accept that this is appropriate for young children to experience.”

No doubt the same leftists who assert that “cancel culture doesn’t exist” will uphold this as an example of it.

“It’s not OK when you do it!”
