The Rio de Janeiro headquarters of Porta dos Fundos, the creators of Netflix controversial gay Jesus movie was hit by a Molotov cocktail attack in the early hours of December 24.
Molotov cocktails were thrown at the headquarters of a comedy troupe behind Netflix’s ‘gay Jesus’ film on Christmas eve.
The First Temptation of Christ roused anger among Christian viewers for insinuating that Jesus was gay – returning home for his 30th birthday alongside a new ‘friend’ named Orlando.
More than 2million people have signed a petition for Netflix to take the show down and have threatened to boycott if they fail to do so. In the early hours of Christmas Eve, two masked men launched the petrol bombs at Porta Dos Fundos’ headquarters in Brazil.
In a statement released, Porta dos Fundos states that no one was injured in the attack but it ‘endangered several innocent lives in the company and on the street.’ The building had security footage which has now been handed over to the police.
The petrol bombs were lobbed at the door but thankfully no one was hurt.
‘Porta dos Fundos condemns any act of violence. We expect those responsible for the attacks to be found and punished,’ the statement read.
‘However, our priority right now is the safety of the entire team that works with us. ‘We will speak again once we have more details.
Meanwhile, Porta dos Fundos would like to reinforce our commitment to good humour and declare that we will move on stronger, more united, inspired, and confident that Brazil will survive this storm of hatred, and love will prevail along with freedom of speech.’
In the controversial 40-minute short, Jesus is seen being surprised with his birthday party after walking the desert, becoming embarrassed by the introduction of new friend Orlando.
The show never explicitly states that Jesus is gay, however, it’s been largely inferred by his interaction between Orlando, and his bashfulness about the friendship to his parents and family.
