    Comedian Fined $42,000 by Human Rights Tribunal for Telling a Joke
    By William Hicks | 3:49 pm, August 18, 2016

    Canadian comedian Mike Ward was fined a whopping $42,000 by Quebec’s Human Rights Tribunal for jokes he made about a disabled boy.

    The child, Jérémy Gabriel, who suffers from Treacher Collins Syndrome, is a bit of a national celebrity in Canada after he sung for the pope in 2006 essentially because everyone thought he did not have long to live. Ward’s joke was a rant about how the child was supposed to die, that he “stole a wish” and is unkillable. Sure, not in great taste, but certainly not in violation of the kid’s “human rights.”


    His joke was never televised, but after he talked about the bit in an interview, Gabriel’s parents found out and dragged the comedian to the human rights tribunal last month. He fought the fine, but lost in court.

    Ward told Spikedthat he plans to appeal the decision, and if that fails, will try to bring the case to the Supreme Court. “If I lose that I’ll just move to Syria or Saudi Arabia, or some other country that respects free speech as much as Canada does,” he said.

    never heard of this guy
    or this disease

    the young man has a real mild version of it
    he just looks like a real ugly oddball---some of these people are really fucked up

    the comedian has turned this into a tour it seems
    has some international dates off it
    he's actually quite successful it seems

    secretly he probably pretty happy at all this
    he's paid 40 grand to be infamous--infamous probably puts asses in the seats


    but yeah--it's silly
    this kid's parents are morons--can't protect your son from mean people--you can't
