MTV hottie Rob Dyrdek is a lot of things besides just a professional skateboarder -- but a pedophile is most definitely not one of them. Yes -- I said a pedophile. Because that's exactly what comedian Daniel Tosh has insinuated he is after doing a sketch on Tosh.0 where he turned Rob's "Fantasy Factory" into a "Childish Dream Factory for Young Boys Only." In the clip there are a bunch of shirtless 12-year-old boys cruising around on scooters, and Rob is seen serving booze to a minor. (What the heck? That's just wrong.)
And if you are as big a Rob Dyrdek fan as I am, then you're probably having about the same reaction to the spoof as I did -- scratching your head and trying to refrain from shouting from the rooftops that Rob is one of the most stand-up dudes EVER and would never do anything to harm a child. (And you're probably wanting to kick Daniel's a** too.)
Rob, of course, is extremely fired up over Daniel's sketch (which isn't even remotely funny), and apparently he's ready to duke it out with him in person via a good old fashioned fight. He took to his Twitter account (OMG how am I not following him yet?) to voice his frustrations and said: "The idea of having beef with @danieltosh is truly embarrassing ... for real ... imagine that 'clip show host' beef ... but now that beef is very real." He went on to say, "I am not a comedian or an actor so unfortunately for @danieltosh we are going to have to settle this the old fashion way."
And if he and Daniel do wind up getting into any sort of a brawl, I wouldn't mind taking a few swings at Tosh too. I've watched all of Rob's shows ever since Rob & Big started, and I've never seen him do anything close to shady, nor have I seen him act with any sort of ill intentions. He's entertaining, hysterical, and has truly mastered the art of "livin' the dream."
Ok -- confession time. Some may consider it to be a major parenting fail -- but I've let my 6-year-old watch Fantasy Factory & Ridiculousness on more than one occasion. In fact, over Memorial Day Weekend, he and my husband and I chilled out in the hotel room watching the Rob Dyrdek marathon every night before bed -- and all three of us laughed our butts off.
And even though there is some foul language (that is beeped out) on the show, I've never really worried about letting my son see what takes place on each episode. Everything Rob does is all in good fun, and I seriously doubt I've done any permanent damage to my little guy's psyche by letting him watch.
Rob has every right to be beyond pissed at Daniel Tosh -- who most definitely owes him a huge apology.
(I've got your back, Rob. Call me, maybe?)
You can hear more about what happened between them in the video clip below.
Do you think Daniel Tosh was out of line?
