    The Ecuadorian national flag flies outside their London Embassy, Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016. Comedian Bobby Mair has been standing outside the embassy reading the news to Julian Assange through a bullhorn since the WikiLeaks founder's internet access was cut off.

    Julian Assange can’t access his internet after the service was cut off by the Ecuadorian embassy, so a Canadian comedian is bringing it to him. Bobby Mair has begun to stand outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London where Assange is, shouting the days news to the WikiLeaks founder, NBC News reported.

    Mair uses a bullhorn and holds up a sign, reading "Julian Assange’s Personal Internet Service." "In your hometown right now of Townsville, it's like 32 degrees [Celsius, 90 Fahrenheit]. Maybe some of your childhood friends are having a nice day." Mair shouted. "Maybe you could write them a letter."

    NBC News said it’s unclear whether Assange was listening or appreciative of the comedian's efforts.
