Audience member calls 911 day after Middle Eastern comedian's show offends him : “There was a comedian whose name is Ahmed Ahmed, the name is Middle Eastern. And the first thing he said when he got on stage was, ‘How many Middle Eastern people do we have here?’ And a whole bunch of people raised their hand. And he said where are you from? I’m from Iraq, I’m from Iran. I’m from Pakistan. I’m from here, I’m from there. He said, ‘That’s great. We could organize our own little terrorist organization. “And I don’t think that was right. And that really bothered me.” “Yeah,” the emergency dispatcher responds. “I can understand that in this environment.” “And I yelled, ‘Yeah, and the paddywagon is going to be outside to get all of you.” The caller then told the dispatcher, “I don’t know, is that something that should not be said?” Here's the audio of the 911 call: https://soundcloud.com/naplesnews/man-calls-911-to-report-about-comedian-ahmed-ahmed-at-off-the-hook-comedy-club ​ And here's a story where the comedian and shop owner talk about the incident: https://www.naplesnews.com/story/news/local/2019/05/15/ahmed-ahmed-comedian-reference-middle-easterners-prompts-911-call-naples-florida/3678655002/ Full Article
