Australian comedian Isaac Butterfield jokes about Christchurch mosque shootings.

”For me the saddest thing about that it wasn’t the 52 peple killed...100s of people couldn’t make it home from night club because all cabbies(cab driver) were dead..”
Audience laughs.
No moral compass.
No shame.

—- Some thoughts about this

I think people like Isaac Butterfield argue that there is too much political correctness (and that is a fair point) and that comedians should be free to talk about anything and nothing should be off-limits. That is also fair enough. We don't want to live in a totalitarian society where people are scared to demand their rights and live in fear from too powerful government or corporations.

But in his joke about the victims of the Christchurch massacre, Butterfield is not going against some powerful forces nor is he using his voice to speak truth to power.
Butterfield is bullying the most powerless and voiceless amongst us - he is haunting the survivors and victims who only have memories of loved ones left. It is not brave or honest or standing up for anything. It is just insensitive. Rude. Vile. Low.

And for what purpose? A few laughs? We as an audience and observers should be above this with our moral and ethics.
If he wants to criticise and fight - and stand up for anything in this stand-up comedy special - it should be to fight and stand up for the voiceless who are suffering. What is the point of free speech when he is turning all his talent against those who can not answer him? Where has his empathy and our empathy as an audience gone? What is the purpose of comedy like this?

I will not hold my breath but will give Mr Butterfield advice as the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him said: "If you feel no shame, do as you wish.” and Allah swt will repay you accordingly.
