Solomon Buchi, others slam comedian Shanks over ‘disrespectful God’s skit’

WRITER and life coach, Solomon Buchi has taken to social media to call out comedian Shanks Comics over the latter’s latest skit which he regarded as blasphemous and disrespectful.

”Dear Shank the comedian, You have produced skits that were outrightly blasphemous & disrespectful to the Christian faith. You once depicted Jesus in a scene as moved by a woman’s boobs. Such a travesty of the divinity of Christ. This isn’t a comedy, this is disrespect to Christ,” Solomon Buchi wrote.

The controversial skit titled ”If Joseph was Nigerian,” saw the comedian enacting the story of the conception of Jesus Christ. Shanks in the portrayal of the characters, is believed to have not only mocked God but, also sexualized and misrepresented the characters in the story.

His skit has since generated major backlash on social media with many calling for him to be canceled.
