During an interview Friday on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, actor Damon Wayans dismissed the Bill Cosby sex scandal as a “money hustle” by the women who say Cosby assaulted them, according to Mediaite.
The In Living Color and Saturday Night Live veteran discussed a range of issues before he was asked to offer advice to the fallen entertainment icon, who he believes should divorce his wife and give a deposition in what he describes as a “money hustle,” the report notes.
“If I was him, I would divorce my wife, wink-wink, give her all my money, and then I would go do a deposition,” he said in the interview. “I would light one of them three-hour cigars. I’d have some wine and maybe a Quaalude, and I would just go off, because I don’t believe that he was raping.”
In July, New York magazine profiled 35 women who have accused the 77-year-old Cosby of sexual assault and rape in decades-old allegations, and Wayans questioned why the accusers waited so long to make their claims.
“How big is his penis that it gives you amnesia for 40 years?” Wayans says in the interview. “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 unrapeable. I look at them and go, ‘You don’t want that. Get outta here.’”
