Yep, no. By successfully curating videos of people being idiots or jerks, Daniel Tosh has acquired a position of power on the Internet. Rachel Sklar points out, for some reason, he’s decided to use said power to encourage dudes to “Lightly Touching Women’s Stomachs While They’re Sitting Down.” You can see why he could think it’s funny as it’s awkward, irreverent, and mean; however, it’s not funny – it’s incredibly offensive and vaguely rapey. You’d imagine at some point while slowly creeping behind an unexpected woman, he’d realize that he’s basically molesting strangers.
It’s gross enough to grope people just to make fun of how they aren’t anorexic, but it’s millions times worse to then tell others to do it. Three million times worse to be specific, which is how many people regularly watch Tosh.0. Rest not assured, many people are heeding Tosh’s grotesque call to action. We aren’t going to link to any of those YouTube clips as to not increase their views but it’s definitely happening. With so much Internet to mine, it’s unbelievable that he would resort to telling his fans to lightly touch women’s stomachs and that Comedy Central would allow it. Now if he told his audience to lightly touch a kitten’s stomach, we’d be all for it.
