Holly Willoughby along with other TV stars.Frankie reportedly quipped during his performance directed at the This Morning presenter: "I’d obviously kill her and rape her afterwards. I’m joking, I’d rape her first."Since, it has been claimed he still supports the offensive joke after he was questioned about it at a Waterstones launch event for his latest book.He said: "Can I just say, my routine about raping and f*****g Holly Willoughby was part of a very long routine about whether or not it’s okay to do a joke about that, and I look at it from both sides, there are pluses and minuses."He also made sure to add that the power of comedy is in the fact that it is in the "eye of the beholder".Because of this, he added that believes himself to be a "mainstream" comic, according to Mail+.Express.co.uk have contacted Frankie's representatives for comment.About the joke, a spokesperson for volunteer campaign group FiLiA said: "We are horrified that some men in the entertainment industry continue to consider the abuse of women to be comedy material."There is nothing funny about male violence and seeking cheap applause at the expense of traumatising women speaks of low-quality material."A statement continued: "We are grappling with a national crisis in which the police and the courts fail rape victims who are brave enough to come forward seeking justice."Women and girls around the country are not laughing.
