LOS ANGELES, Nov 11 — Making rape jokes isn’t something new in the comedy circuit and Chris Rock is the latest to add them to his set.

According to Vibe, Rock performed at New York’s Comedy Cellar on Nov 2 and was called a “sexist pig” for his efforts.

He reportedly said “[Women] cry rape because they want money,” and according to Page Six, the audience were silent when he left the stage.

Neither Rock nor his reps have talked about the incident, which came before sexual harassment allegations were levelled at fellow comedian Louis CK who has admitted to the offences.
