Comedian Daniel Tosh has already apologized for directing a rape joke toward a female audience member, but now he may be scrambling to make sure another set of rape jokes don't get out.

An anonymous source has told the website RumorFix that "most" of the upcoming animated Comedy Central show, "Brickleberry," which lists Tosh as an executive producer, contains jokes about rape. The pilot episode is slated to premiere tonight at Comic-Con in San Diego, and the source says editors and producers are working against the clock to remove jokes that, in the wake of the ongoing controversy, seem indefensibly inappropriate.

“Everyone is freaking out, because most of the pilot is about rape,” the source said.

Ever since Tosh apologized via Twitter for offending the Laugh Factory audience member, the comedy community has been abuzz with talk about whether or not such jokes are ever appropriate. But no matter how tame the alleged rape jokes in the new series from "Damn! Show" creators Waco O'Guin and Roger Black may have seemed when the episode was filmed, it's most likely a case of "too soon."

HuffPost has reached out to Comedy Central and Tosh's management for confirmation. They have yet to respond.

A teaser for the show, which won't be airing on Comedy Central until September, can be seen above. Check out HuffPost Comedy's slideshow below for more comedians who have "crossed the line" in comedy.
