Yes, this happened. As part of a promotion for his upcoming comedy special, “This Is Not Happening” comedian Ari Shaffir held an “Ask Me Anything” session with Reddit.
Somewhere in the course of their Tweets for the online Q&A either Shaffir or someone running Comedy Central’s social media account thought that this was a funny way to promote the hashtag #ThisIsNotHappening:
“Tray & G coming this fall on Comedy Central! George Zimmerman gay marries Trayvon Martin and hilarity ensues! #ThisIsNotHappening.”
The tweet has since been deleted, but once again we have an example of someone who thinks that they are being humorous or witty only to alienate the audience by trying to make light of a tragedy.
George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Florida student Trayvon Martin earlier this year after claiming self-defense.
Shaffir is a comedian known for sketches like “The Amazing Racist” where he goes into kitchens and calls the Mexican workers there racial epithets while dressed in a sombrero. He’s so super racist that it’s funny. Get it? No? Me either.
