The Brazillian headquarters of comedy group Porta dos Fundo, the creators of the Netflix Christmas special ‘The First Temptation of Christ,’ was attacked by Molotov cocktails on Christmas Eve. Two petrol bombs were thrown at the building, causing a fire, which was put out by one of the office’s security guards, NBC News reports.
The Netflix special received backlash for implying that Jesus is gay. After the attack, the comedy group took to Twitter to share the news.
“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 wrote on Twitter. “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.”
According to Reuters, no one was hurt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
”The First Temptation of Christ” is a comedy that shows Jesus coming back home from the desert for his birthday with a male companion that is somewhat flamboyant, implying that the two have a romantic relationship.
Netflix declined to comment.
