  • The comedian has made some shocking comments about the 50 women who have come forward to accuse Cosby of sexual assault

    Once in a while, a story comes along that is so infuriatingly ridiculous it is hard to know where to begin.

    This is one of those stories.

    Damon Wayans is the latest celebrity to throw in his (irrelevant) two cents about the mounting sexual assault allegations made against Bill Cosby, claiming the 78-year-old couldn’t possibly have raped all those women because they weren’t even that attractive.

    Strap in guys, it only gets better from here.

    The actor, who was last seen on TV ten years ago in My Wife And Kids, had some choice words for the 50 women who have come forward to accuse the actor of sexual assault and/or rape.

    ‘Some of them, really, is unrapeable. I look at them and go, “No, he don’t want that. Get out of here”,’ he said on US radio show The Breakfast Club.

    Wayans was asked by one of the show’s hosts, Angela Yee, if he had any advice for the disgraced comedian:

    ‘[If I was Bill Cosby] I would tell the truth. Divorce my wife, wink wink, give her all my money and then I would go do a deposition, light one of them three-hour cigars, I’d have me some wine and maybe a Quaalude and I would just go off.

    ‘I don’t believe he was raping, I believe he was in relationships with all of them and then he’s like, “You know what, it’s 78, it don’t work no more, I can’t get it up for any of y’all, bye bitches” and they’re like “Oh really? Rape.”’

    Wayans’ key argument against the validity of the claims made by women stretching back over 40 years is that if these attacks really did happen, then why did women let them happen more than once?

    “Bitch how many times did it happen? Just listen to what they’re saying,” he theorised, citing the oft used argument that rape only happens if and when women allow it to.

    Wayans has since taken to Twitter to complain that his words have been “twisted” and he does express sadness if any women were actually raped by Cosby. He just doesn’t believe it happened to the majority of these 50 women.

    “There may be [some genuine claims] and for them my heart goes out to them. For anyone that was raped by Bill Cosby, I’m sorry and I hope you get justice. You other bitches…”

    Sorry Damon but laughing your way through some horrific comments about rape, consent and then trying to claim people are twisting your words? No dice.

    What do you think of Damon’s comments?
