On Greg Capullo's Cosby Rape Joke

Greg Capullo, Batman comic book artist (among many, many other things) retweeted this wonderfully whimsical and insightful pic/meme in regards to how a person could possibly knock out undefeated UFC champion Rhonda Rousey.

So funny. I mean rape is ALWAYS funny. That's universal. Amirite.

And here is the response from the man who originally tweeted the HILARIOUS Cosby pic:

I didn't think it could get any funnier and then it did! "COSBY. GONNA. RAPE. HER." BRB holding my sides, laughing too hard. Or crying. Can't tell which.

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE.

Capullo spent the past 24 hours defending his (again SUPER RAPEY FUNNY JOKE) on twitter - blocking dissenters faster than Bill Cosby can (insert a jello pudding shot joke about drugging women here). Super cool move, bro.

And now he's "done" talking about it "out of respect" for his fans.  

Super respectful, Greg. THANKS SO MUCH! 

OR, looked at in another, less faux humble way, SUPER COWARDLY. You can't defend your ignorant mistake so you refuse to because... ego? Or are you really so stupid as to believe that meme wasn't a rape joke (as you've stated) and it's just about how to knock out a fighter. A woman fighter. With quaaludes. But we - the people offended and pissed off - are "morons". Pot. Kettle. Fuck you.

In what BATMAN universe do you not fess up and say "I'm sorry. I wasn't thinking that joke all the way through. I made a thoughtless mistake. I'm human. And I would never in a million years condone rape or rape jokes in any form. I hope I can make it up to my fans and everyone I've offended in the future. Please feel free to discuss your feelings with me and I'll be happy to listen."

Oh hahahahaahaha. I just made myself laugh because that is never, ever going to happen. Or cry because again, I can't tell the difference right now.
