Let’s face it — the Daniel Tosh rape joke controversy is diving us as a nation. What we need right now — and what Daniel Tosh REALLY needs right now — is a change of subject, perhaps a new animated series to make people laugh and stop arguing over a horrible thing like rape.
WELL LOOKIE HERE — the pilot episode of Tosh’s new animated series, Brickleberry, is set to debut at Comic-Con tonight. What’s it about? Well, according to someone who has seen it, “most of the pilot is about rape.” Uh-oh.
Reports Rumor Fix:
RumorFix has learned exclusively that producers and editors are scrambling to take out any reference to rape in the pilot episode of Daniel Tosh’s new animated series, Brickleberry.
Production sources tell RumorFix that Tosh has given them just over 24 hours to make the changes — because the series is scheduled to be shown at Comic-Con in San Diego Friday night.
“Everyone is freaking out, because most of the pilot is about rape,” our source says.
Um, yeah. Good luck with that.
In other Daniel Tosh rape joke news, I’m pretty sure that the best response to the controversy was this piece from The Onion titled, “Daniel Tosh Chuckles Through Own Violent Rape.”
HOLLYWOOD, CA—Embroiled in controversy following comments he made during a recent performance at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, comedian Daniel Tosh chuckled this afternoon while being violently raped by a group of men in a Hollywood alley. “You have to admit, this is pretty hilarious,” said the teary-eyed 37-year-old, his bloodied face slamming against a brick wall as he was brutally and repeatedly penetrated against his will for the 53rd straight minute.
Seriously, go read the whole thing here. It’s perfect.
