A post shared by Ari Shaffir (@arishaffir) on reports that Ari Shaffir was scheduled to do stand-up at the New York Comedy Club Tuesday night at 9:15 PM, but the club was forced to call cops after getting multiple phoned-in threats.

One thing you NEVER do is joke about someones death it is utterly disrespectful. Of course, Ari Shaffir didn’t get the memo so fans of Kobe made sure to let them know he best start looking over his back from now on.

According to reports, sources say someone called threatening to shoot up the place because a comedian scheduled to perform there made a vile joke about Kobe. Comedian Shaffir’s name was not mentioned but the Comedy Club knew it was him. Ari stirred anger just hours after Kobe and his daughter tragically died in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

Law enforcement sources say the shows were canceled by the club due to numerous threatening calls.

The day Kobe died, Shaffir tweeted a selfie video, saying:

Kobe Bryant died 23 years too late today. He got away with rape because all the Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape. Big ups to the hero who forgot to gas up his chopper. I hate the Lakers. What a great day!

Ari Shaffir behavior is just sickening!

Shaffir vile behavior continued when he posted another video later and doubled down, saying Kobe’s death was a “good story” because “the guy got away with rape.” Shaffir deleted it, but the damage was done.

Ari swiftly got dropped by his talent agency after the Instagram video, later took to Instagram to explain his video in epic failure.

Career OVER! No offense, but if Ari Shaffir never performs again it will be too soon. From us to Ari…”FU dude…you are one foul, vile and disgustingly disrespectful person.”

No apology will correct your vile remarks.
