daniel tosh has always been a shitty, not-funny comic. whose just learning this now?
Most main stream, and certainly many less amous comics joke about rape. Or maybe I should say that they make rape centric jokes. You don’t need to defend the entire comedic genre to tell off Daniel Tosh.
Daniel Tosh is barely a comic. He makes money watching videos from a site avaliable to anyone not in China with internet access and saying uninspired shit about it to a live audience of intoxicated Tickle Me Elmo dolls.
He threatned that woman to make her feel small and to make himself feel important and feed his insecurity. He didn’t say it because it was poignant or humorous. He did it to win. because he’s a dumb uninspired douchebag with too big a microphone and not enough cognative abilities to do his job well.
That wasn’t a rape joke. That was a threat in an excusable arena used and laughed at only because of the dominant male demographic that loved the exclusivity.
So fuck that show and that guy. Fuck the way its showing its critics as oversensitive babies who can’t take a joke. Humor can be found in any situation, but not everyone is capable of being funny. And everyone on television is liable for questioning.
