Larry Wilmore continues to find new ways to mine the Bill Cosby story on his Comedy Central late-night show. This time, he took advantage of New York magazine’s cover featuring all of Cosby’s alleged victims who have come forward to introduce the idea Cosby is “having a vocabulary issue” and does not understand the definition of “rape.”
A “rapist,” Wilmore explained, is someone who “commits an unlawful sexual act with or without force on another person without their consent” and “physically or mentally incapacitated whether by alcohol, drugs or being asleep is unable to consent.”
“By denying their victims their sexual agency, a rapist increases their own deluded sense of self worth which is why a rapist can tell someone else to pull up their pants even though he himself never did,” Wilmore snarked.
