Australian Comedian Isaac Butterfield slammed on social media and by Islamic leaders over an offensive joke about the Christchurch massacre at a Mosque in his comedy special Anti-Hero.
This Australian extremist stormed this building, this mosque, this room where people were saying their prayers and going about their business. And for me the saddest thing about, it wasn’t 52 people who were killed, it wasn’t the countless others that had their lives changed forever because their family members were taken from them. It was the hundreds of people that night who couldn’t make it home from nightclubs in Christchurch because all the cabbies were dead.
Isaac Butterfield, Anti-Hero
Isaac Butterfield makes no apologies for the joke in his response, repeating that it is an offensive joke and meant to shock, like many similar popular comedians have told and does not represent his really feelings on the massacre.
He absolutely deserves to to be called out because just as much as he feels he can tell offensive jokes, people can be offended and voice their outrage. But showing some of the message he received, death threats and threats of physical violence are going too far, “I hope your daughter gets raped”.

First thing that you’ll notice is some separation from each other Yes it’s a lie we’ve been believing since time immemorial There was an apple, there was a snake, there was division There was a split, there was a conflict in the fabric of life
Alanis: Is it too loud? Onyx: It’s ok Alanis: ok
One became two and then everyone was out for themselves Everyone was pitted against each other; conflict ruled the realm All our devotions and temperaments are pulled from different wells We seem to easily forget we are made of the same cells
Onyx: Hi, but that’s not the same *indistinguishable* Alanis: ok, sorry
To my boy, all that energy so vital Love your hues and your blues in equal measure Your comings and your goings away My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
Onyx: Hi mom Alanis: Hi biggie
Second thing you’ll notice is that often we think that there’s not enough It might feel dark, it might feel lonely You may be overcome with darkness and a sense of helplessness But it won’t matter if you keep the core connected to the oneness
Onyx: I can hear you Alanis: Ready?
To my girl, all your innocence and fire When you reach out, I am here hell or high water This yest is never going away Onyx: Did you say yest? Alanis: Nest My mission is to keep the ablaze Onyx: But why did you say nest? Alanis: Because it’s a nest? … Ablaze
And this cord is unbreakable This pilot light is there in your pocket And this bond, beyond unshakeable Even if we all forget All at the same time If we forget at the same time
Onyx: why you say … Alanis: This is the last one
To my boy, my precious gentle warrior To your sweetness and your strength in exploring May this bond stay with you through all your days My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
To my girl To my my The light in your eyes My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze
First thing that you’ll notice is that everything is temporary Next thing you might notice is that we will always be a family
Onyx: did you say family? Alanis: I did say family. Onyx: I still hear music, still hear music, keep on singing Alanis: Keep going? Onyx: oh, you stay(?) Alanis: I can stop? Onyx: Yes Alanis: Ok, thanks.
