Daniel Tosh is apparently trying to avoid repeating his recent mistake. Days after landing on hot water for making a rape joke during his stand-up show, he is now reported to be asking editors and producers of "Brickleberry" to remove any reference to rape in the pilot episode of his new animated series.
According to RumorFix, the crew are just given 24 hours to re-edit the pilot, because it will be shown during Comedy Central's panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 13 at 6 o'clock in the afternoon. "Everyone is freaking out, because most of the pilot is about rape," a source claims.
Tosh was previously slammed for making a woman the subject to his rape joke during his gig at Laugh Factory on Friday, July 6. The female audience member recalled she disagreed with Tosh's statement that rape jokes were always funny, and "then, he says, 'Wouldn't it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her...' "
The anonymous woman shared the "humiliating" experience on her Tumblr and complained to the club's manager. The comedian later took to Twitter to offer his apology as writing, "all the out of context misquotes aside, i'd like to sincerely apologize."
As for his upcoming show "Brickleberry" which will premiere September 25 at 10/9c on Comedy Central, it revolves around a group of dysfunctional forest rangers at a national park. Tosh serves as the executive producer along with comedians Waco O'Guin and Roger Black.
