Doug Benson Cancels Show in Canada Due to Death Threats From – Wait For It – Canadians

We thought the above clip was a parody of Fox News. Apparently, Fox News is its own parody. Comedy foil! And apparently, making light and/or fun of our neighboring country that has sacrificed 116 soldiers and one diplomat fighting as our ally in the war in Afghanistan induces chuckling. Let the hilarity begin!

Anyway, comedian Doug Benson is in trouble with the Canadians for the following exchange:

“Isn’t this the perfect time to invade this ridiculous country,” Greg Gutfeld continued. “They have no army.”

“I didn’t even know they were in the war,” said Benson, a panelist on the show. “I thought that’s where you go if you don’t want to fight.”

The Comic Strip in Edmonton canceled Benson’s appearance ‘for the safety and security of patrons and staff’.

Geez – you have to be an epic douche to get the Canadians wanting to hunt you down. That or a moose.
