Louis CK didn’t mean to defend Daniel Tosh

Rape is obviously terrible and awful and wrong (except in self defense), so Daniel Tosh got into a lot of internet trouble last week when he made some rape jokes at a comedy club. One girl in the audience was surprised to hear jokes while at a comedy club, and went online to cry about it. But then the great Louis CK came to his defense, and after that people started to calm down.

Except, as he explained on the Daily Show last night, Louis CK wasn’t trying to come to anyones defense because he was on vacation in Vermont and hadn’t gone online or heard any news and had no idea Daniel Tosh was in any sort of controversy.

He should have though because Louis CK has a terrific rape joke (video here):

“I’m not condoning rape obviously, you should never rape anyone. Unless you have a reason, like if you want to fuck somebody and they won’t let you. In which case, what other option do you have?”

But other than that rape isn’t funny. Lots of editorials have made it clear that it’s a very serious matter and not to be taken lightly. It takes planning and preparation to do it right. Or am I missing the point?
