Karen Elson is Told by Daniel Tosh Fan She ‘Needs to be Raped’ After Criticizing the Comedian
In case you missed it, earlier this week comedian Daniel Tosh told an audience member that it would be funny if she got raped "by like, five guys" after she interrupted the comedian's set to tell him that the rape jokes he was already making weren't actually funny. But, as comedians seem to forget, what happens in the comedy club doesn't always stay in the comedy club, and the woman's blog post about the incident quickly went viral, with websites like Jezebel picking up the story. While some comedians have stepped up to Tosh's defense, the incident mostly drew the ire of the public at large. Even fashion people like Karen Elson took note. The model voiced her reaction on Twitter saying, "Daniel Tosh didn't get the memo that it [rape] never was and never will be funny." Apparently, Tosh has some rabid fans, because within hours Elson received a number of pretty nasty responses. An example? "@KarenElson_ Needs to be raped, she might lighten up after getting some for once."
