The comedian charged with committing a sexual offence against a child under 12 is the latest to have his name suppression broken online.
The name was leaked in chatrooms as people gave clues as to who it is and some also said his name.
The alleged offending occurred earlier this month.
The man's lawyer Marie Dyhrberg says she can't comment about what action would be taken.
He will reappear in the Auckland District Court at the start of January where he will defend a charge.
