Damon Wayans is catching heat for remarks he made about Bill Cosby’s accusers during a recent interview on The Breakfast Club.
Speaking with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God on Friday, Damon referred to Cosby’s accusers as “un-rapeable” and dismissed their allegations as a “money hoax.”
“If I was him, I would divorce my wife—wink, wink—give her all my money and then I would go do a deposition. I’d light one of them three-hour cigars. I’d have me some wine and maybe a Quaalude, and I would just go off, because I don’t believe that he was raping; I think 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 with any of y’all. Bye, bitches.’ And now they’re like, ‘Oh really? Rape!'”
“But if you listen to them talk, they go, ‘Well, the first time…’ The first time? Bitch, how many times did it happen? Just listen to what they’re saying. And some of them, really, is un-rapeable. I look at them and go, ‘Nah, he don’t want that. Get outta here!'”
Although the damage had already been done at that point, Damon did apologize to the women who were raped by Cosby during the same interview.
After facing an onslaught of criticism, Damon later took to Twitter, asked that his words not be twisted and posted the above clip. See those tweets below.
