Netflix Ordered by Judge to Remove Controversial Comedy About Gay Jesus

A judge orders 'The First Temptation of Christ' which depicts Jesus Christ as a gay man to be removed from the streaming site due to overwhelming backlash in Brazil.

AceShowbiz - A Brazilian judge has ordered Netflix bosses to cease streaming a controversial new comedy special which depicts Jesus Christ as a gay man.

"The First Temptation of Christ" debuted on December 3, 2019, and led to the launch of a petition in Brazil, calling for the show to be axed.

Judge Benedicto Abicair, who revealed 2.4 million people signed the petition, has now urged Netflix chiefs to remove the show stating it "is beneficial not only to the Christian community, but to Brazilian society, which is mostly Christian."

The controversy surrounding the show led to activists reportedly hurling Molotov cocktail bombs at the headquarters of Porta dos Fundos, the comedy troupe behind "The First Temptation of Christ", on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2019.
