[ comedy ]
Even among douchebags, Anthony Jeselnik is known as an asshole. And it’s not just his standup, or his hilariously vicious appearances on Comedy Central Roasts (“The only reason you got on TV in the first place,” he told Charlie Sheen, “is because God hates Michael J. Fox.”) It’s also his tweets. Exhibit A: “This Daniel Tosh rape joke controversy really has me second guessing some of my rapes.” And B: “Goodbye Rodney King: The Original Rihanna.” And C, within hours of the Aurora shooting: “Other than that, how was the movie?” A lot of what he says is horrible and appalling. Why did I just cut and paste all that and put it in the newspaper? I must also be horrible. And if you laughed, then you are horrible too.
