Daniel Tosh, offensive jokester extraordinaire, crossed the line a few days ago in a comedy club. During a skit in which he made jokes about rape, a young woman stood up in protest of the offensive jokes. In response, Daniel Tosh “joked” about how “funny” it would be if she were to be raped by “like five guys” right then. His jokes continued and the young woman had to flee in fear.
This takes offensive joking to the next level. Tosh did not simply make jokes about rape, which is bad enough as it is, but he used his “jokes” in such a threatening way that a young woman ran away to maintain her safety. He used his jokes to silence a person who was concerned with the nature of them.
