Damon Wayans is receiving a huge backlash on the internet after making insensitive comments defending rape-accused Bill Cosby.
The comedian appeared on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club" radio show on Friday, and revealed that he doesn't believe Bill is a rapist and that he thinks the actor was in relationships with all of the 51 women who have come forward.

"I don’t believe that he was raping, I think he was in relationships with all of them," he said. "And then he was 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, b*****es. And now they’re like, ‘Oh really? Rape!’
“I just don’t believe it. I think it’s a money hustle.”
Wedging his foot even more firmly into his mouth, Damon goes on to add, "And some of them, really, is un-rapeable. I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!’”
He also compares the accusations to the ones put on the likes of white celebrities like Woody Allen and Stephen Collins.
In a small touch of damage control, the actor then added that IF any of the accusers are telling the truth then his "heart goes out to them."

"For anybody who was raped by Bill Cosby, I'm sorry and I hope you get justice," he said in a clip he has since uploaded to social media in defense of his remarks after feeling the full force of the angry web fell down upon him.
"Stop twisting my words. Watch the entire interview before u condemn me!" he Tweeted.
