Louis CK Says He Didn't Mean To Support Daniel Tosh Over Rape Joke: [ send to a friend ]
Louis CK says he had no idea Daniel Tosh was under fire for joking about gang rape, when he wrote, what seemed like, a message of support for the comedian.
"I was on vacation in Vermont, watching TV in a hotel room and Daniel Tosh's show, Tosh.0, comes on and it's making me laugh, it's a funny show," the star of FX's 'Louie' told Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show'.
"I wasn't reading the internet at the time because that's how I go on vacation -- I really hate the internet -- so I just stopped reading it. But I'm watching TV and Tosh is making me laugh, so I wrote a tweet."
"Daniel Tosh, your show makes me laugh every time I watch it," wrote CK. "And you have pretty eyes."
"Two days later, I come home and read these Hollywood reporters saying 'Louis C.K. Defends Daniel Tosh Amid Rape Joke Controversy.' I had no idea he got in trouble for making some jokes about rape."
"I didn't know about it. So I'm a defender of rape, that's what everybody says now. I've been called a rape apologist cause I said hi to a guy."
