Stop Dapper Laughs from appearing at Kittys/Kandy

This petition made change with 268 supporters!


A "comedian" called Daniel O'Reilly, better known as Dapper Laughs, is supposed to be appearing at Kittys on 6th December 2014.

We would like to ask Kittys Kandy to remove him from the bill immediately. Someone who is openly sexist and misogynistic should not be given a platform infront of a mainly young audience.

More than 30,000 people have recently signed a petition to have the second season of his show axed due to the nature of his “comedic routines”. ITV have taken his show off air.

He promotes the objectification of women, referring to women as “minge” and saying things to women in the street such as ““Hey darling, can I smell your fanny?”


Here are some comments he has made on rape and women:

“If it was a guide to rape, I would have done one five-minute episode, come on and go 'Oi oi, I'm Dapper Laughs, go down the shops, get some rope, bit of duct tape, rape the b**ch, well done, see you later."


"She's gagging for a rape. We'll have a chat afterwards. Do you want to come backstage after? Bring two of your mates, you’ll need them."



"Remember, it's only sexual harassment if she's more attractive than you.”

“Get your arm swing just right when you’re walking and you occasionally touch a bit of minge by “mistake”, they love it.”

 

Homeless charity Shelter have said he is deeply offensive about homeless people, with comments such as:

"Just gave my number to a homeless woman (cracking boobs though, not sure if her top was low cut or just ripped) closed with: your place or mine?"

In a song he made: (to homeless person) “You smell like shit.”

44 comedians have just come out against him: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/comedy/news/dapper-laughs-jenny-eclair-katherine-ryan-and-isy-suttie-among-44-comedians-to-sign-open-letter-against-entirely-sexist-itv-star-9852198.html
