Daniel Tosh: Readers beyond offended after Tosh goes off with rape comments
When Daniel Tosh made an insensitive joke about rape, many sounded off and some even went as far as to say they’d never watch his hilarious show again.
Earlier this week, the Tosh.O host made his usual routine on T.V but instead this time decided to throw in a few jokes about rape which in turned landed the cute T.V host in hot-water.
Daniel: I think his comments are purely jokes. Do you honestly believe he’d on on national television sensationalizing rape to literally make it OK? Get real people.
Sarah: His comments were extremely insensitive. I hope he apologize, or I just won’t watch his show anymore. Rape is a serious issue as it happens hundreds of times a day in the United States, be more mature next time.
Armie: I really didn’t find it offensive that he used the routine itself, I sort-of found it offensive that his show doesn’t have a disclaimer that literally says ‘Some routines may be offensive, not intended for audiences whom are easily offended’ or something of that nature. It would’ve only been smart.
