    They should get badatmemes to stand in. Could do a matinee and an evening show – and ply him with drink in between the two performances. I’d go and see that.

    I don’t like Al Porter, I’m not victim blaming but this is one of best trial by social media this country has ever produced. Have yet to read anywhere any legal report or investigation.

      Irish rising star Porter said: ‘I have been completely taken aback by reports in the media and on the social networks over the weekend, and by the scale and tone of the vitriol. While my conduct, which had been in keeping with my flamboyant and outrageous public persona may be regarded as offensive and unacceptable by many people, I at no time intended to upset anyone. ‘Up until now, I had been unaware of these complaints or the impact of my conduct and I am truly sorry for any distress I may have caused in what I had regarded as light-hearted and good-natured circumstances.

      He cannot believe people are not happy about him assaulting someone with mental health problems. Mad, isn’t it?
