Patton Oswalt (and other comedians) Defend Daniel Tosh

In the wake of a female audience member accusing Daniel Tosh of making a rape joke at her expense, comedians have taken to Twitter to comment on the controversy.

While numerous comedy fans and professionals have tweeted messages condemning Tosh's response to the female heckler, some comedy figures, including Jim Norton, Louis C.K. and Opie of The Opie & Anthony Show, have expressed support for Tosh and for a comedians' right to speak uncensored.

Dane Cook, who performed at The Laugh Factory on the same night as Tosh, had a darker message: easily offended people should kill themselves.

Not familiar with Anthony Jeselnik but his tweet was the worst I've seen.

What?! Pakistan is in the border countries of central Asia and the middle east and still considered middle eastern per most geographical aspects.

You people need to get over yourselves.
