It was a roast Dave, not a genocide


TV3 star attacks Jews
A top TV star unleashed a racist outburst at a high-profile media event this week - claiming that "Jews were expendable". David Fane, one of the creators of bro'Town, told an audience including Jason Gunn, Mike Hosking, Kate Hawkesby and John Tamihere, that "Hitler had a right" and HIV sufferers deserved to be "roasted". Fane, who is best known for film and TV roles including Outrageous Fortune, Sione's Wedding and Radiradirah, also hosts a breakfast show on radio station Flava. His employers at the The Radio Network and TV3 were last night ducking for cover, with both refusing to apologise. Fane made the tirade on Wednesday night at the inaugural Radio Roast at the exclusive Northern Club in Auckland. He said: "You are the worst motherf*****s in the world, you agency guys," referring to advertising bosses in the audience. He said: "I want to eat you, but I won't because I don't want to get HIV. Would you roast an HIV person? You'd roast them because they're expendable. Like the Jews. Hitler had a right, you know. "You've all got f****** Aids, c****!"

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, WTF? It was a roast Dave, not an open invite to commit comedic genocide. Roasts are certainly supposed to be hilariously raw events, and no one deserves as much contempt as the 'Agency guys', but questioning the way one should roast someone with AIDS and concluding roasting them was in fact acceptable because Hitler roasted Jews would have had me choking into my $50 a glass wine as well.

At least there's a reason now based on this level of humour that helps explains why Radiradirah is so unfunny! It's like you can actually hear the tumble weeds while the skits uncomfortably go on and on and on. I think TV3 comedy needs to stick to the 7days dick jokes level (which jaw droppingly always edits Michele A'Court completely out of them).

Is it true Radiradirah is a colloquial Maori word for. "I can't believe we got funding for this'?

Whats interesting is all the people who are claiming it was "taken out of context". The real context to this and other antisemitic slurs is that Israel basing is currently in vouge and many closeted bigots are getting some good old jew basing in while the going is good.

It's interesting how you allow borderline bigoted comments such as that which spouts from the asshat above - however, if I have any tart remarks to make about your asshole buddies Dr Brian Edwards or Jane Yee then you seem to 'lose my comment in the post'. Nevertheless, radiradirah is a ridiculous piece of unfunny shit and it's the natural heir to that other over-hyped piece of cartoonal crap Bro Town.

Hey arse fixation whats the 'borderline bigoted comment' I made, anally-retentive one? These drama school islandas reproducing & trading on stereotypes are just boring- that wouldn't be a problem if we weren't payin 4 their mediocrity. Gimme Karlo Mila or Albie anyday bigotbusta. Or ain't I allowed to say that in your asstastic world?

Hey, shirleyboy. Maybe when you learn to spell and structure a sentence we could have a conversation. In the meantime, I'll leave you to your txting grammar and retarded wigga-isms because I know that's the way that you roll in the neighbourhood public toilets (or however the phrase goes).

What's the difference between an anti semite and an anti palistinian?

Weird shit going on here! Bro Town had some funny moments early on. I've seen Fane in some superb acting roles Neu Seela (sp?) was a superbly acted play and he's been excellent in others. Possibly this was an ill considered outburst but does it deserves a personality assassination? Back on your meds you rabid bunch!
