[VIDEO] Louis CK Explains His Defense Of Daniel Tosh Rape Joke
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.17.2012



Zap2It reports that Louis CK appeared on The Daily Show Monday where he talked about his Twitter defense of Daniel Tosh, who came under fire for the rape joke he made recently.

Louis CK said: "I was on vacation, I was in Vermont, just being in the green in America ... I was watching TV in a hotel room and Daniel Tosh's show came on, 'Tosh.0,' and it's making me laugh. And I wasn't reading the internet at the time, 'cause that's how I go on vacation ... I wrote a tweet to say your show makes me laugh. And then two days later I come home and I read, 'Louis CK defends Daniel Tosh amid rape joke controversy.' I had no idea he got in trouble for making some jokes about rape and I didn't know about it, so I'm a defender of rape ... I've been called a rape apologist."

But even if he didn't defend Tosh at the time, he did decide to defend the idea of off-color jokes. He added: "For me, any joke about anything bad is great. Any joke about rape, holocaust, the Mets, whatever ... but I've read some blogs during this whole thing that have enlightened me, that I didn't know. This woman said how rape is osmething that polices women's lives -- they can't go out late, they can't go to certain neighborhoods, they can't dress a certain way -- but I can still enjoy a good rape joke."
