    Wasn't sure where to put this fruit loop.

    A man charged with vandalising the memorial of murdered comedian Eurydice Dixon said he did it as “an attack on feminism”.

    Ms Dixon was allegedly raped and murdered while walking home through a park home last month.

    Andrew Nolch told The Age he “planned on getting caught” when he allegedly spray-painted a lewd symbol on Ms Dixon’s memorial the night before a vigil was held

    “I was upset, and I want to make this clear, this was not a person attack at all…this was purely an attack on feminism, on mainstream media for hijacking a vaccine-causing issue and turning it into a men are bad, women’s rights issue,” he told the newspaper.

    “Mr Nolch repeatedly cited the discredited theory that vaccines caused autism,” The Age said, adding he said it was “worth causing hurt to get his message across”.

    Mr Nolch, who said he was 29, although police said he was 31, describes himself as an independent Scientologist and former comedian.

    Ms Dixon was an emerging comedian, and her friends said Mr Nolch was known to them.

    He previously hosted a comedy show and a podcast about conspiracy theories and Scientology

    He said he is no longer perusing stand-up because his anti-vaccination stance was not welcomed in comedic circles.

    Mr Nolch was arrested last month over the vandalism and has been granted bail.

    He is expected to appear in court next month.

    Vandalising a memorial is not a “personal” attack... what a f**king fruit loop.

    I have to say though a Scientologist anti-vaxxer sounds like a fantastic comedy act

    If we want to talk about identity warriors who constantly self own than seeing T-Ba post Vice is interesting. Gavin Mcinnes is likely quite wealthy but he would have cost himself millions of dollars by leaving vice in a huff when he did.
