While performing a set at Loyola University Chicago, comedian Hannibal Buress’s microphone was cut off for making a crude joke.
Pitchfork reports Burress’ mic was cut off because he made a joke about the history of the Catholic Church with molestation and sexual abuse. Loyola University is a Catholic school and it didn’t find Buress’ joke very funny.
He told the joke after sharing an email he received from the university which asked that he didn’t discuss, “rape, sexual assault, race, sexual orientation/gender,” or illegal drugs” during his set.
When his mic got cut off he continued trying to perform only to have the music turned up until he walked off stage. The crowd could be heard shouting, “We want refunds,” as he exited.
Buress later returned back on stage and made jokes about his mic getting turned off. Neither Buress ‘or the school have made a comment about the incident.
