Bill Cosby’s alleged rape accusations have become a hot topic, especially now that Mr. Huxtable is now joking about the 25 allegations against him at his shows. This morning on Hot 97, Ebro, Laura Stylez and Rosenberg got a visit from Marlon Wayans. The Haunted House comedian is no stranger to the show so he knew the right way to handle their questions about Cosby making light of the charges.
“He’s supposed to make a joke,” said Wayans. “He’s a comedian! If it was happening to me, that would be the first thing out of my mind is ‘I’m going to make a joke about it.’ You have to.”
He also explained how it would make Cosby sound more innocent if he made jokes about the scandal. But don’t think he’s being too insensitive. He goes goes on to encourage anyone who has been raped to just come out with it. One of the biggest problems with rape victims is that they feel too ashamed to come forward and make their case. Wayans said no one should wait as long as 25 years.
