So what? it happens it is part of the human psyche and no one is going to change that.
No one got hurt, the guy got a free pint and his story in the paper.
I feel it is just because they chanted Jesus why some of you are getting your knickers in a twist about this...nothing more.


No one got hurt? How would you know? You weren't the one getting verbally bashed by 4000 plus people. It is obvious the guy got emotionally "hurt." He said so himself.

How about you grow a beard and let people tug on it while calling you Jesus as you are escorted out of the arena, all the while being publicly humiliated.

Yeah, I
you not. Darts is crazy in some places. Even have girls flashing.

Bunch of drunken darts fans, don't take it personally Jesus...


guess if he was black that excuse would roll too would it!


Since you weren't there you don't really know what transpired. There is a good chance he had words out with one of the fans which led to taunting, which then the crowd picked up on. Maybe he pissed off the crowd by shouting... etc.

Without details like that though, it's hard to make judgements on cases like this. I know whenever people jump up in the public spotlight to play a victim, it's usually a redflag though.

This man spent his life similar to Jesus.

He also has missing information from similar ages, 18-30.

He performed miracles and was called man's savior.



He's also just as real as his metaphorical example.

OP, I must say, even back when I did drink alcohol, it was never in public. This is why. In private, at home or others private gatherings? Sure....but never in public. People do stupid crap when they drink. People in groups do stupid and dangerous crap when they drink. When I was younger, it was amusing to be the sober one in a bar. Now, I'm distinctly uncomfortable and aware of how quickly funny group behavior can turn to people getting hurt.


It's not the same world it used to be, that's for sure.

That role is already filled by someone though, so Darts Jesus will have to continue being Jesus unless he can come up with something new.

Superman Darts Fan


A GREENOCK man who fell 20 feet on to concrete at a darts event while dressed as Superman today told how he could have died.

Kevin Houten was sitting down to watch the stars of the Premier League Darts when he plunged off the top of a stand and tumbled to the ground.

the essence of the thread is public behaviour, and seriously are you going to start provoking a crowd of 4,500 people

Frankly, i am finding some of these holier than thou responses as funny as the incident itself.

That said, it does make me wonder what has happened to us as a species? If something like this can get people so upset - does no one have a back bone anymore?

I find it rather pathetic that such a non story has got so much media attention.

Been there had it done to me when I was 18 (long hair) and went to a comedy show, I went to the loo the comedian started calling me a scruffy Jesus and did I shop at Oxfam and when I came back a thousand people started singing "do you shop at Oxfam, do you shop at Oxfam na na na na hey na na na na hey" at the comedians request, did I cry no I lapped it up and saw the funny side.
Please stop making this into something it isn't.

Oh man, this is so funny and stupid at the same time.
He should start his own church or something. This must be the sign that he is the one.

Is that a rhetorical question? I've been to sporting matches where someone is out and out rude to me or maybe a girl I'm with. But once they figure out I have 20 or 30 people in my group they quickly change their tune.

So if someone is real rude, spills a drink on a girl I'm with, gets in front of her and blocks her view on purpose, that kind of thing. And I get all my friends to taunt him, (rather than get into something physical) would you still look at it the same way?

I'm not saying it happened in this case. I'm just pointing out we never heard two sides of the story. Whoever wrote it, should have interviewed someone sitting next to Jesus. Than we could at least figure out why it started. If it was simple taunting because he looked like Jesus, than it's pretty asinine of a drunken dart crowd. If he did something to provoke a couple people, and the drunken dart crowd lent a hand... Well, I just figure it's lesson learned.

In either case, it's a drunken dart crowd. Darts ain't the most exciting sport in the world, that's why the stands and fans are usually better than the show... Like I said... Drunken dart crowd.

So people act like drunken wangers and rather than throw them out, throw out the one that's done nothing wrong but is the target of their wangery?

Brilliant.

I can't see how anyone could view it as a non story, personally and no challenge is meant by that, it's an honest lack of understanding for where that comes from.

The fact they fixated on Jesus sasys more about them than anything about him. He looks as much like a big leprechaun as he does Jesus Christ for all it matters to what thousands of drunken fools chose to pick on a stranger about. They could have been chanting "Where's me gold?!" and been equally childish and offensive...and potentially threatening given the totally surreal nature of it.

I could see this among college kids in a frat match or something where everyone pretty well knows everyone else or close enough to take things friendly. These are so many, it's total strangers though. Thats....odd. Almost beyond odd. Creepy.

It was a different situation for this guy though. He was removed from the arena because he was seen as the one who was interrupting the game...WTF?

He was called Jesus by more than "a thousand people." 4000 people had a go at him. People physically assaulted him while he was escorted out of the arena. I think this guy went through a more emotionally traumatic experience than you did, regardless of your age.

Also, this wasn't a comedy show. You can almost expect a comedian to crack jokes about members of the audience.

Oh please emotional trauma lol remember the source is the Daily fail and they like to spice up a story (lets face it they had to with this non story)
He has a great tale to tell his Grandkids.
I'm out of this one.
Like I said you are just bothered he was called Jesus nothing more.

Jesus Christ, all thats going on in the world and you get all bothered about this?
