Comedian Damon Wayans Sr. made some shocking comments on Bill Cosby’s sexual assault accusations. He jumped to Bill’s defense in a new interview, claiming that some of the victims were ‘unrapeable,’ and questioned why they had waited so long to accuse him.

More than 40 women have come forward claiming to be rape victims of Bill Cosby, 78, but comedian Damon Wayans Sr., 55, is calling it all a “money hustle.” The In Living Color star revealed his shocking opinion on Bill’s sex scandal in an interview with the Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee on Sept. 4, where he defended The Cosby Show comedian. Watch the interview here.

Damon was asked by Angela what advice he would give to Bill in wake of the scandal, and his answer was shocking. “It’s a money hustle,” he says around the 25th minute in the clip above. “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 he was raping. I think he was in relationships with all of them, and then he’s like, ‘You know what, it’s 78, I can’t get it up for any of y’all, bye bitches.’ And now they’re like, ‘Oh, really? Rape.’”

It didn’t stop there. After New York Magazine profiled 35 women who accused Bill of sexual assault, Damon questioned why the women waited so long to say something. “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.’”

Bill’s 2005 deposition was released to the public on July 6, and it revealed that he sexually assaulted a Temple University employee. In the court documents, Bill admitted that he got Quaaludes in order to drug women before having sex with them. “And for them, my heart goes out to them,” Damon continued. “For anybody who was raped by Bill Cosby, I’m sorry, and I hope you get justice.”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked that Damon defended Bill? Let us know.
