"All people have a choice who they want to listen to" - that's the view of the organiser of an event by a Polish stand-up who has made extreme homophobic, anti-Islam and sexist comments. Wojciech Cejrowski's event has been dropped by the Strand Arts Centre in east Belfast. The organisers of Polish Cultural Week - who originally promoted the event - have said its not their event, and that they have been told "that this event is only about Wojciech Cejrowski's travels and that there will be no political or other controversial comments". Stephen got the views of Rainbow Project's John O'Doherty, and Aleksandra Lojek a hate crime support worker from east Belfast - who's originally from Poland.
