Daniel Tosh Apologizes To Girl Via Twitter About Rape Joke
Daniel Tosh is a comedian that is known for his TV show Tosh.0 and is known for telling jokes that can be very offensive. During a recent stand-up act, he went on Twitter to apologize to a girl that he offended. The girl went on Tumblr to detail the entire story about what had happened.
“Tosh then starts making some very generalizing, declarative statements about rape jokes always being funny, how can a rape joke not be funny, rape is hilarious, etc.” said the blogger. When the blogger interrupted him to let him know that she disapproves, Tosh responded by pausing and saying “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…”
I’m actually impressed that he apologized because anyone that has seen Tosh’s show or stand-up specials will know just how crass he can be. Who knew Tosh had a sensitive side?
