French Comedian Dieudonne Banned in Morocco

RABAT – Moroccan authorities banned the popular but controversial French comedian Dieudonne from performing his upcoming act in Casablanca, according to Moroccan media on Thursday.

No official sources have explained the cancellation of the “La Bete Immonde” (The Filthy Beast), scheduled for April 29, which was a stop on his tour of Arab cities, including Dubai and Beirut.

The show was also banned last Monday in Brussels.

According to Medias24 website, an official source offered the reasoning that, “the show is not licensed,” while le360 Moroccan website assured that the producers were contacted Thursday morning by representatives from the event’s planned venue, telling them that the hall was not available “for technical reasons.”

Dieudonne has faced repeated convictions on charges such as anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial and incitement of racial hatred in France.

The comic has faced this exact situation before, as he had to cancel a performance in 2009 in Casablanca.
