Daniel Tosh Wants Rape Jokes Edited Out of New Show

by at . Comments

In the wake of this week's Daniel Tosh rape joke controversy, the Comedy Central star is trying to get as far away from that topic as possible.

The comedian reportedly asked editors and producers to remove any reference of rape from the pilot episode of his new series, Brickleberry.

The only issue? That's what most of the pilot is about, obviously.

Tosh reportedly gave the crew 24 hours to make those changes before the animated series is shown at Comic-Con Friday night in San Diego.

The Tosh.0 star's camp has yet to return requests for comment.

After making a female audience member the subject of his joke about rape during a stand-up routine last Friday, Tosh sincerely apologized.

While complaining about offensive jokes at a Tosh show is akin to objecting to the noise at a Metallica concert, there is a line he can cross.

Did he in this case? Should he have apologized?

A nigger democrat jew whore lesbian quadriplegic bitch with a vaginal infection of epic proportions (according to the CDC) walks into a comedy club. She is instantly raped by five Republican white-supremacist country hick redneck cousin-fucking unemployed retards, and one gets her pregnant. How can you tell which one is the father? Its the one who raped her in her cunt! Now lets abort the baby, and put this whore back to work.

it's not the joke but the way he handled the audience members' challenge -she threw him a major curve ball and his immaturity and limits as a comic and communicator were clearly defined - best he can do is use this to become better at what he does

Just saying,you cannot tolerate a rap joke yet you can handle reading the racist comments on this site that are not jokes.

Yes, one can say that a comedian has the right to joke about anything but where is the line? Are jokes about molested children funny? A comedian's job is to be funny but that is always defined by the culture around him. He is funny as long as we, the audience, allow him to be funny. Maybe in a context/country where rape is acceptable he would 'kill' with this joke. But in this case, he has just killed humor!

Joking about rape is inexcusable to me. It's just not something that should be joked about. It's inappropriate that he degraded the woman. he's a comedian. He should be able to handle the criticism of someone who thinks he went over the line. he could've ignored her but he made that horrible joke. It's disgusting what he said to her. Glad to see hes changing that program. He doesn't need to joke about victims of rape to be a funnyman.

HE IS A COMEDIAN IT'S HE JOB. HE SHOULDN'T HAVE APOLOGIZED FOR IT. IT WAS HER FAULT FOR HECKLING HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE. WHY WAS SHE EVEN AT THE CLUB TO BEGIN WITH. SHE GOT WHAT SHE WANTED. ALL IT IS SHE WANTED HER 15 MINS OF FAME AND A APOLOGY FROM HIM. SORRY I BEHIND HIM 100% SHE NEED TO GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON.
