In comedy, it’s standard operating procedure to be ripped apart by the performer on stage if you choose to disrupt the show and yell something out. Even if you don’t agree with whats being said, by yelling out and voicing your opinion to a room full of paying customers who didn’t come there to listen to your objections…. you are giving the performer on stage a license to tear you a new asshole.
You are not at a Vagina Monologues poetry reading, you are at a Dane Cook show. That is really not the place for your soliloquy on socially acceptable jokes.
My sentiments exactly.
i get the whole ripping someone apart when youre on stage. ive done it. i am really good at it.
but rape isnt funny. rape hurts. deeper than you know. its not kind to wish that kind of thing on someone. it tears apart your insides. it makes you feel used up and ugly and horrible.
if he had ripped her apart with something else, it wouldnt matter to me.
what if he had said something like “wouldnt it be funny if i just murdered this chick? like just totally bashed her skull in with a chair?” see? thats not funny. thats fucking creepy.
I didn’t say it was funny, nor do I think that rape jokes are funny, but she should have expected some sort of backlash for attempting to put the entirety of rape haters in the world on her back in that one moment.
Gotta agree. ^^^^^
This is just disgusting. The issue isn’t whether or not she should expect backlash, but the fact that Daniel Tosh said it’s funny to get gang raped. And no, if rape haters are getting on her back because she interrupted a comedian, then these haters need to check themselves, because equating interrupting someone to rape, and making it a bigger issue, is fucking wrong on so many levels.
Agree with Epic. Tosh deserved to be called out, and proved how vile he is by his response to her.
