According to her blog post, the woman said she was offended by a rape joke Tosh told and called out from the audience, " "Actually, rape jokes are never funny!"
After that, she wrote, the comedian indicated her and said, " Wouldn't it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now?'"
After his apology tweet, Tosh used the social networking site to try and make light of the situation.
