I Ain’t Praying For That

John Crist is a Christian comedian and YouTube star with a vast social media following. To hear a ‘clean comedian’ who is actually really funny is rare these days and so many people were super excited for this Netflix special of his show ‘I Ain’t Praying For That’, due to be released on Netflix this week. Unfortunately, Crist has been accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women. He has admitted some of the accusations and says he is seeking help to tackle his behaviour and addictions. This is hugely disappointing to his fan base and has left Netflix with no choice but to pull his show that is now showing the above error on their media listings. Netflix has stated that the show is currently ‘on hold’.
