Daniel Tosh’s detest for the University of Alabama has become a running gag, thanks to two Crimson Tide alumni on his staff and Tosh’s love of the Miami Dolphins, the team Nick Saban quit after two years to become head coach at Alabama.
Tosh has expressed his hatred for Saban many times on Comedy Central’s Tosh.0, but tying it into jokes about a natural disaster marked a new high/low.
Tuesday, Tosh asked viewers to donate money toward the state’s tornado relief efforts, but couldn’t resist yet another dig. With a photo of a destroyed house behind him, he said, “Apparently God hates Nick Saban more than I do.”
In keeping with the show’s quasi-mean-spirited, yet hilarious tone, he made several other comments about Alabamans, which earned a mixed response (offended and amused) from those in Dixie. Likely just what he’s going for.
NOTE: You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 and help Alabama get back on its feet … so that Tosh can continue eviscerating it personally.
