This Is The Rape "Comedy Sketch" Some UConn Students Made

The University of Connecticut's television network, UCTV, aired the controversial comedy sketch "Shenanigans" on November 30 and January 10. It was this week, however, that the shit hit the fan.

The segment features a hysterical girl using a blue-light phone while trying to evade a rapist. In turn, she's called a "howler monkey bitch," "blonde bitch," and "cock gobbler" before being accused of "crying rape"—all by the machine. At one point, two robotic blue-light phone voices even trade dirty talk in disgusting monotone after the attacker catches up with the girl.

UCTV removed the video and apologized, but a UConn Women's Center protest is still going down tonight. Rape isn't the subject you want to milk for comedy. This won't end well.
