|Damon Wayans defends his old friend Bill.|
Actor Damon Wayans goes to the junk food media to defend his mentor, Bill Cosby.
The nation of Cosby collapsed after numerous accusations of rape and sexual assault allegations came forth. In a sworn testimony, Cosby admitted to using items that would make women extremely tired.
Wayans is not convinced that Cosby did this. He went on The Breakfast Club to defend him.
"If I was him, I would divorce my wife, wink-wink, give her all my money, and then I would go do a deposition," says the actor. "I'd have some wine and maybe a Quaalude, and I would just go off, because I don’t believe that he was raping."
"It’s a money hustle". Wayans continued, saying, "Forty years — listen, how big is his penis that it gives you amnesia for 40 years? 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 unrape-able. I look at them and go, ‘You don’t want that. Get outta here.’”
Again understanding that rape is traumatic and 90% of the time, rape goes unreported.
Wayans is ignorant. Many rape victims often don't report their accuser because of power, the state of belief and money. Cosby obviously paid off women when he was caught doing it. I mean he's often trying to keep his legacy afloat. He would gladly silence an accuser if it stopped her from revealing his horrible deeds.

Wayans don't see that some rape victims would commit suicide or have an unwanted pregnancy.
When Cosby was accused by a woman of fathering her child, he denied it. Shawn Upshaw, the mistress and her daughter Autumn Jackson tried to extort him. Jackson got some time in the iron college for this event. Many people sided with Cosby on that issue. Despite failed attempts to get a DNA test, Cosby refuses to acknowledge this.
Wayans should be very careful about his words. He could face some serious backlash for his comments. Trust me, rape is not funny or a rite of passage. It's a serious criminal act and it could land you in the iron college for LIFE or in some cases death.
In this gotcha media society, you have to have proof that a rape occurred.
Concern trolls often shame a rape victim.
"She shouldn't have dressed like that!"
"She always slept around!"
"She said that she wanted to have sex!"
"She cries rape to get attention!"
"He should be raped in prison!"
"He had it coming"
"Like, most high school boys, they don't care if they bang the teacher!"
