WATCH: Adam Hills wants to 'piss off bigots' Westboro Baptist Church by donating to charity

LAST UPDATED // Tuesday, 26 August 2014 16:36 Written by // Sabine Brix

Comedian Adam Hills has taken back his offer to fly members of the Westboro Baptist Church to Iraq, instead donating the money he would have spent on their flights to Robin Williams' favourite charity.

The comedian announced last week on his U.K. TV program The Last Leg he would fly  members of the fundamentalist anti-gay church - who were planning to picket Williams' funeral - to Iraq where they could picket the people threatening to behead Christians who wouldn't convert.

On this week's program however, the host rescinded that offer saying that Westboro Baptist are nothing but a bunch of attention seekers and that he wouldn't be spending any money on them.

"I don’t want to fight hate with hate and I certainly don’t want to give these guys more publicity,” Hills said.

“That’s why I’ am going to take all the money I was going to spend on your air tickets and I’m going to donate it directly to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the name of Robin Williams.”

“Not only will it help a child, it will really piss off a bigot”.
