Charlamagne Tha God has come out to clear the air over statements credited to him saying that he raped his wife.
In an interview with ‘The Breakfast Club,’ the African American radio host said his statement of taken out of context as he was talking about consensual sex. He also admitted to being “irresponsible” for using rape so loosely.
“That stems from a conversation I was having on my podcast about rape culture. It was a lot of op-eds and think pieces last year but I remember Teen Vogue, in particular, had a headline that said: “Is Drunk Sex Considered Rape?”
“So my wife and I were discussing it. Because the first time we had sex we were super young and super, super drunk. So I asked her did she consider that consensual sex based on the conversation that was happening online.
“And the audio clip they got circulating online is edited and stops at me just saying, ‘Yeah.’ But she told me, ‘Yeah, I can see how people say that but that’s not what happened with us. It’s not like I said no,” he said.
Charlamagne Tha God’s wife during his show called in to speak about the trending topic which has gotten her husband a lot of backlash.
This coming less than 24 hours after he had revealed that he raped his wife while they were still dating. His comments received a lot of back last from people.
“I keep telling’ y’all. I’ve told y’all this over and over. It’s a lot of things guys did especially when we were young that were rape that we just didn’t consider rape. I’m married to my wife. Me and my wife dated for a whole year, she would not give me no pu**y, Me and my wife hung out one Saturday night and she got sloppy drunk and passed out in my momma’s house and I got that pu**y.
“She was f***ing me back and all that but she was really drunk. I asked her yesterday, ‘Yo, did I rape you the first time we ever had sex?’ And she goes, ‘I mean in hindsight, yeah…” he said earlier in his podcast, The Brilliant Idiots,
