Gay Jesus Film Creators Attacked With Petrol Bomb.

After over 2 million people have signed a petition calling for the boycott of show because it offended Christians. Authorities has reported that two petrol bombs were thrown at the Rio de Janeiro headquarters of Porta dos Fundos, creators of the Netflix gay Jesus Christmas Special in the early hours of December 24.

A representative for the group told Brazilian news portal UOL that the Molotov cocktail attack resulted in a fire, which was put out by one of the office’s security guards and that no one was hurt, “even though the incident put several innocent lives at risk”.

“In the early morning of December 24, on Christmas Eve, the headquarters of Porta dos Fundos was the victim of an attack. Molotov cocktails were thrown at our building,” the comedy group said in a statement.

“We will move on, more united, stronger, more inspired and confident that the country will survive this storm of hatred and love will prevail alongside freedom of speech,” the comedians said, adding that video footage from security cameras had been handed to the authorities.

The Brazilian comedy troupe’s film “The First Temptation of Christ,” a 46-minute comedy that portrays Jesus bringing home his presumed boyfriend Orlando to meet the Holy Family, sparked outrage in Brazil weeks ago.
