Ari Shaffir gets death threats after celebrating Kobe Bryant’s death


American comedian, Ari Shaffir, receives death threats after short clip shared on Twitter showing him made jokes about Kobe Bryant’s death.

According to TMZ, Ari Shaffir has cancelled a schedule show in 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!”

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

We’re told the club filed a complaint with the NYPD for aggravated harassment 25 minutes before Shaffir’s set time. No arrests have been made and the case is still under investigation.

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