Comedian and actor Damon Wayans has dismissed the Bill Cosby accusations as “a money hustle” and says he doesn’t believe the “bitches” he allegedly assaulted because they were “unrapable”.
When asked during an interview on radio show Breakfast Club what advice he would give Cosby, Wayans, known as the star of TV shows In Living Colour and My Wife and Kids, said he would “tell the truth”.
“If I was him, I would divorce my wife, wink wink, give her all my money and then I would go to 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,” he said.
“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 for any of y’all, bye bitches’. And now they’re like ‘Oh, really? Rape’.”
Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting more than 50 women, some of the incidents dating back to the ’70s, which Wayans described as unbelievable.
”Forty years — listen, how big is his penis that it gives you amnesia for 40 years?” he said.
One of the show’s hosts reminded him that many of the women originally told their story decades ago.
“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 then things really took a turn for the worst, with Wayans describing some of the victims as “unrapable”.
“I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!'” he said.
“Look, I understand fame. I’ve lived it. Women will throw themselves at you. They just want to be in your presence. There’s some that innocently will come up there, but not 40-something women. They’re not that naive. What, in 1965 he just walked into someone’s dressing room and put his penis inside their mouth?”
Wayans has since defended the comments on twitter, claiming his words were twisted.

He also called it a “witch hunt” and has retweeted many claims his comments were taken out of context by the media.
You can judge for yourself. It starts around the 26 minute mark.
