About this Episode
Jun 2nd, 2016. Mike Ward has been the subject of controversy. Ward had made a joke ridiculing Jérémy Gabriel, a disabled boy with Treacher Collins syndrome who was 12 years old when first ridiculed by Ward. Jérémy's parents filed a complaint with the Quebec human rights commission, and the commission brought the case in front of Quebec’s Human Rights Tribunal seeking $80,000 in damages from Ward. The tribunal’s decision is expected in August 2016. We talk about his upbringing in comedy, rationalizing hatred and of course the trial!
