Doug Stanhope Wins ‘Best Advice Given To Daniel Tosh Advice About This Rape Joke Nonsense’
For those of you blissfully clueless to this retarded controversy drummed up for Internet hits that I’m not even going to pretend I’m not shamelessly soaking up right now, according to some chick’s Tumblr, Daniel Tosh made comments about rape jokes being funny and her friend (Who, of her own admission, was only there to see Dane Cook, so immediately every one of her opinions is suspect.) claims the following exchange happened:
I, for one, DON’T find them funny and never have. So I didnt appreciate Daniel Tosh (or anyone!) telling me I should find them funny. So I yelled out, “Actually, rape jokes are never funny!”
I did it because, even though being “disruptive” is against my nature, I felt that sitting there and saying nothing, or leaving quietly, would have been against my values as a person and as a woman. I don’t sit there while someone tells me how I should feel about something as profound and damaging as rape. [Ed. Note: What will she sit there and tolerate? Jokes about “chainsaw-fucking” women. – SW]
After I called out to him, Tosh paused for a moment. Then, he says, “Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her…”
And from there, BOOM, instant Internet controversy because Daniel Tosh later apologized although he mostly just pointed out this chick misquoted him and took everything out of context which is usually what happens when you take a comics word out of a comedy club and go, “OMG! Can you believe this person said these real things he meant?!” In the meantime, Gawker reports Louis CK has offered his support because a.) that’s his thing now, God bless him, and b.) what better way to point out Daniel Tosh more than likely stole this bit from Louie. That said, Doug Stanhope put this whole thing to bed on Twitter and there’s really nothing else to say after this:
@danieltosh If you ever apologize to a heckler again I will rape you.
Haha! It’s funny because he said rape and that chick was mad about rape and now I made it less funny. Stupid laws of destructing comedy, I’ll rape you!
