Canceled -- literally: Bay Area comedian's shows nixed after pro-Palestinian jokes

A comedian was no longer welcome at a comedy club due to some of his posts about the Israel and Hamas War.

Bay Area native Dauood Naimyar says a comedy club in Dallas canceled his two-night stint after he posted some pro-Palestinian jokes on social media.

Naimyar said on Instagram that his jokes are meant to inform people about the situation in the Middle East.

In another post, he said he understood the decision to cancel his shows.
