Canadian Comedian fined $35,000 for joke
A Canadian comedian must pay $35,000 to a disabled man he made fun of in some of his acts.
A Quebec appeals court upheld the decision by the Quebec Human Rights Tribunal. It said Mike Ward exceeded the limits of free speech when he told jokes about a disabled man's performance singing in front of the Pope.
Making fun of a disabled guy is obviously in poor taste.
But it's a pretty dangerous precedent to set when the courts start telling us that offensive jokes exceed 'limits' of free speech.
