Waleed Aly was stunned by a joke made by Reuben Kaye, a comedian on The Project, about Jesus.
He was talking about how he gets hate for who he is as a gay man and for dressing up as a woman.
In his joke, Kaye said he loves Jesus because he can get pierced for three days in a row and then come back for more.
While co-host Sarah Harris had a laugh, some viewers were disturbed by the remark.
Some people took to social media to share their outrage. One person said he insulted millions of Christians.
A parent said they had to explain the joke to their 8-year-old before Survivor started. A viewer demanded an apology from the hosts.
Dan Foster demanded an apology from the hosts and the cancellation of the program.
He said that the joke was sick and that he was giving permission for others to mock Christians. Others, however, found his joke amusing.
One viewer said that he p***ed himself.
Another said that he couldn’t believe that Kaye made the joke on national television.
Known for his outspoken statements, Kaye will not shy away from controversial topics during his upcoming tour.
