Rape, Nigger, Fag, Whore, Cunt, Kike, Wetback
Daniel Tosh is the latest comedian attacked by the internet for telling a offensive joke (HERE) . The internet is ready to be outraged and call someone misogynistic from behind their keyboard at a moments notice.
You go to a comedy club, you don’t like the comedian, you leave. That’s it. You don’t heckle. I’m sad to see Tosh have to apologize at all.
I’m not a big fan of rape on misogynistic jokes myself. I joined in the dogpile on comedian Colin Kane on Twitter last week..because his Twitter is mean and unfunny. It may work in a club, I have no idea because I will never go see him. But he should be allowed to say whatever he wants .. it’s called freedom of speech.
A working comedian shouldn’t have to worry about internet backlash from every controversial subject.
You don’t like Tosh? fine. Colin Kane is misogynistic? yup. Mad at Carolla because he thinks men are funnier than women? sure.
But are we really ready to tell comedians what subjects are OK to joke about?
" "you can’t joke about rape. Rape’s not funny."
I say, “fuck you, I think it’s hilarious. How do you like that?”
I can prove to you that rape is funny. Picture Porky Pig raping Elmer Fudd.
See, hey why do you think they call him “Porky,” eh? I know what you’re going to say.
