Damon Wayans’ Wayout TV: Violence against Women is Fucking Hilarious

Unbelievable.

Summary of video:

Man playing videogames, phone rings. He eventually answers it.

Cut to Woman calling Man, nervously, to tell him she’s pregnant.

Man says “oh, no, what are YOU going to do?”

Woman says “I’m not sure what I want to do, I’m going to take some time to think about it”

We see Man look horrified, and he says under his breath “you gotta get rid of that shit” but when she asks “what did you say?” he tells her he welcomes the pregnancy – “thrilled with the whole situation”.

Woman looks immensely relieved, says how she’s surprised because she thought he’d be mad, but now she’s so thrilled that he’s happy that she’s going to call her mother and friends to let them all know the good news.

Man tells woman there’s some things he needs to do and he’ll call her later. She says “Love you!” sincerely and he mutters half-heartedly “love you too” as he hangs up.

Man goes to window and calls “Help! Help! Anybody? Help!”

Cut to Man2 in street below. Man2 unzips jacket to reveal logo on chest of a baby-silhouette with a barred circle across it. Says “This looks like a job for Abortion Man!”

Man2 zooms up to Man’s apartment to be apprised of the situation with some bros before hos bonding, and then Man2, complete with cape, is up up and away to seek out the Woman.

“I have you now, Fiend!” says Man2, and then proceeds to punch, kick and stomp the Woman until the bloody fetus is expelled, wailing, up into the air and then into the adjacent shrubbery.

Cut back to Man’s apartment. “Thanks Abortion-Man, you saved my life!” Manly Handclasp. “Oh, I know.”

  1. So many times I have watched as men run from women I know at the mention of the P-word. And isn’t it amazing how the social conservatives always frame this with the woman as instigator and leave the man as a footnote?
    As for the video: nauseating. And sadly too common.

  2. And have you seen the COMMENTS?! Hardly a mention of the violence against the woman. Lots of complaints because the clip is, you know, pro abortion.

  3. Ugh. The comments at YouTube defending this because it’s “just a joke” are annoying me. I think it was Molly Ivins (correct me if I am wrong) who said she wielded her wit and humor against the powerful, not the powerless. Jokes about beating up pregnant women don’t qualify…and they aren’t really all that funny.

  4. No. fricking. way.
    my thought is, apart from the senseless violence, is IT IS HIS FAULT SHE WANTED TO TELL EVERYONE SHE WAS PREGNANT. He wasn’t honest with her – she knew he’d have a problem, and he lied about it. She was prepared for a tough discussion, and they could have come to some kind of reconciliation if it weren’t for his cowardice.
    so that’s the “manly” solution? To lie, and when she reacts to the lie (what other choice does she have?) he stomps the shit out of her?
    unbelievable.

  5. UGH. I always thought Damon Wayans was stupid and obnoxious and horrendously unfunny, but UGH. And I didn’t think it was possible to be more offensive and just plain unfunny than “White Chicks”…

    Well, he’s so “manly” he gets someone else to stomp the shit out of her!

  7. Such a pity that Mr Wayans own father didn’t keep his sperm to hisself.
    Last year a man in Creswick Victoria was convicted after he took a cricket bat to his pregnant wife.
    Somebody must tell males that sexual intent WILL lead to a screaming infant which must be fed until it finds employment.
    How difficult is that concept?
