Melissa Harris-Perry: Can jokes about rape ever be funny?

Harris-Perry and four comedians discuss this question.

My simple opinion: No. (Unless it’s an attack on rape or rape culture in a satirical dark-humor way exactly like the Sykes clip they show.)

Subsequent segment: The Science of Political Comedy
