There are stupid people and then there’s this small-town-no-body-DJ from Britain who was charged with public indecency and offending public morality. Dax J has been sentenced to a year in jail by Tunisia for remixing a Muslim call to prayer (Azaan).

However, this ignorant coward had already fled the country and issued an apology before the court case.
After footage of the event was shared on social media, the nightclub was shut down.
The event the DJ performed at was part of the Orbit Festival in Nabeul in the country’s north-east.
The governor of Nabeul, Mnaouar Ouertani, said:
“We will not allow attacks against religious feelings and the sacred” – Mnaouar Ouertani, the governor of Nebeul said.
Dax J, you’ve-never-heard-of, offered his “sincere apologies to anyone who may have been offended by music that I played at Orbit Festival in Tunisia on Friday,” but deleted his Facebook page after allegedly receiving death threats.
“It was never my intention to upset or cause offence to anybody,” he said.
The British-born DJ is based in Berlin, and no one really cares about him.
What a loser.
