CNN host Brian Stelter confronted radical cleric Anjam Choudary for making a joke about 9/11 during the sound check prior to his interview.

From Breitbart:

Stelter confronted Choudary for making the joke saying, “Here’s what bothers me: When we were setting up for our interview here, the audio engineer asked you to count to ten to check the mic, and you started to do that — but then you said 9/11, 7/7, 3/11. Is this all some sort of joke to you?”

Choudary shot back, “You know, if you had a sense of humor, you would have laughed at that. It was just a sound check.”

“You shouldn’t take any of these things that seriously. If you want to make it a big deal, then so, but it makes you look much more shallow, really,” he added.

The 7/7 refers to the July 2005 London bus and tube bombings that killed 52 and injured over 700 people.

The 3/11 was referencing the March 11, 2004 Madrid train bombings that killed 191 people and injured 1,800.

    anyone who jokes like that about terrorist attacks should be sent to Gitmo and forgotten about

      If you’re into that sort of stuff, please move to Russia. We have freedom of speech here. God forbid someone doesn’t agree with what you have to say and thinks you should be thrown in jail without a trial or due process.

        I’m sorry we are not talking about disagreeing, we are talking about joking about TERRORIST ATTACKS, its not funny, and Gitmo would be the least of their worries if I was within arms reach of anyone stupid enough to joke about thousands of innocent people being killed
