Tuesday’s episode of the Alex Jones Show on InfoWars featured the conspiracy theorist reading a satirical article about abortion written by the persona of Nick Mullen, a New York comedian known for his uber-successful podcast, Cum Town.
Cum Town is hosted by comedians Nick Mullen, Stavros Halkias, and Adam Friedland. Prior to his success on the show, Mullen worked as a comedian in Austin where he was a finalist in the city’s annual “Funniest Person in Austin” competition in 2011. Mullen padded his stand-up comedy career with a variety of other creative ventures.
One of these ventures was writing a litany of Thought Catalog articles under the name Nicole Mullen, “a local mom and free-spirit.”
In the two years between 2013 and 2015 that the Nicole Mullen account was active, Mullen published dozens of articles with titles like “Read This If Your Child Was Eaten By A Pelican,” “27 Inspirational Slurs Paula Deen Used In Her 20s,” and “A Mommy Blogger’s Open Letter To Iran.”
This is all information that would have been available to Jones’s production team if they had looked into it for more than five minutes.
The Nicole Mullen article read on by Jones is titled “Can We Stop Pretending Like Abortions Don’t Feel Good?“
“You guys think I’m joking about this,” Jones says while reading excerpts from Mullen’s article such as “the only way to achieve that kind of orgasm is to visit a clinic, and have my V speculated and scooped out like the bottom of a Ben & Jerry’s pint on ‘me night.’”
After expressing further disbelief at this, Jones links the article Satanism, says something about taking LSD to see demons, and calls it a day for the segment.
While the incident was quickly spotted by fans of Mullen’s podcast, neither Jones nor InfoWars has since acknowledged the fact that he read the pseudonymous work of a man who hosts a show called Cum Town.
