LOS ANGELES, Sept 7 — Damon Wayans has just made some seriously controversial statements about the Bill Cosby’s rape accusations.
The latest celebrity to come to the defence of Cosby, Wayans appeared on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” radio show recently saying he doesn’t think Cosby is a rapist.
“Tell the truth,” Wayans said about his advice for the Cosby Show star. “If I was him, I would divorce my wife, give her all my money and then I would go do a deposition. I would light one of [those] three-hour cigars. I’d have some wine and maybe a Quaalude, and I would just go off, because I don’t believe that 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 like that no more. I can’t get it up for any of y’all. Bye, b*****s,’ and then they’re like, ‘Oh, really? Rape!’”
Wayans also questioned why the accusers waited so long to come forward.
“If you listen to them talk, they go, ‘Well, the first time …’ The first time? B****, how many times did it happen? Just listen to what they’re saying and some of them really [are] un-rapeable. I just look at them and go, ‘You don’t want that. Get out of here,’” Wayans said.
Wayans, who found fame on 1990s TV series “In Living Color” and now appears on “Saturday Night Live”, later partially backtracked, saying “there may be” some cases where Cosby was guilty. “For anybody who was raped by Bill Cosby, I’m sorry, and I hope you get justice,” he said.
