Daniel Tosh Issues Half-Assed Twitter Apology For Rape Jokes

  • Daniel Tosh apologized yesterday for suggesting onstage Friday night that it would be funny if a female audience was raped by five dudes — although it was a pretty meh apology, given it was just tweeting “all of the out of context misquotes aside, I’d like to sincerely apologize.” Tosh had told a rape joke while performing onstage and a woman in the audience of the Laugh Factory had yelled out that rape jokes weren’t funny. He then said, “Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by like, five guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her…” Don’t try to pass that off as mere heckler handling, Tosh. There were a million other ways to better handle that situation that doesn’t involve threats of sexualized violence.  [E! Online]
