Comedian Damon Wayans Calls Bill Cosby Accusers 'Unrapeable' in Shocking Interview (Video)

Damon Wayans is receiving major backlash for his comments about Bill Cosby‘s alleged victims during an interview on Friday (September 4) on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club radio show.

The 55-year-old comedian had quite a lot to say about the over 50 women who have accused Cosby of drugging, rape, and sexual assault.

“Forty years — listen, how big is his penis that it gives you amnesia for 40 years?” Damon said. “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.”

He continued, “And some of them, really, is unrapeable. I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!’…Look, I understand fame. I’ve lived it. Women will throw themselves at you. They just want be in your presence. There’s some that innocently will come up there, but not 40-something women. They’re not that naive.”

Damon later took to Twitter and wrote, “Stop twisting my words. Watch the entire interview before u condemn me!”

Eliza Dushku: CBS Comedy Pilot!

Eliza Dushku has landed a comedy pilot at CBS!

The 30-year-old Dollhouse alum will star opposite Damon Wayans in an untitled sports radio show pilot at CBS.

“It centers on Nick (Wayans), an egotistical sports-radio host with a quick wit and cocky likability who is adored by his fans. Dushku will play Nick’s radio cohort Casey, a fun, quick-witted gal who is socially oblivious and pathologically blunt,” Deadline reports.

Eliza shared the good news on her Facebook page, saying “Stay tuned, there is a serious happy dance occurring at the moment”.

FYI: Eliza was previously attached to star in Bird Dog, a cop drama pilot over at TNT, but parted ways with the project in December.
