Feminists continue to vent their outrage at troubled radio jock Charlamagne tha God who issued a half-hearted apology for his rapey 2015 podcast.
The 40-year-old Twitter star described drugging and raping a woman in a 2015 “Brilliant Idiots” podcast with co-host Andrew Schultz.
In the podcast, Charlamagne laughed hysterically as he described putting a sexual stimulant, Spanish Fly, in a woman’s drink and having sex with her while she was incoherent.
“You can give a girl Spanish Fly as long as she knows she’s taking it,” Schultz scolded Charlamagne. “I don’t know why I’m explaining this to you, and it makes me a little bit worried,” said Schultz.
In a new Podcast on Monday, Charlamagne changed his story and now claims the woman knew her drink was spiked with Spanish Fly.
Charlamagne, whose real name is Lenard Larry McKelvey, was arrested on July 2, 2001 and charged with “willfully, unlawfully, and feloniously engage in penile/vaginal intercourse with a fifteen year old female child.”
The victim, Jessica Reid, now 32, asked South Carolina officials to reopen her case, but her request was refused.
Last month, HBO announced it was teaming up with the troubled radio jock to air a new interview series titled “The Gray Area”.
But the show might be in jeopardy of cancellation before it even airs.
On Monday an HBO spokesman told Page Six: “HBO is taking a serious look into the information that just surfaced.”
Angry bloggers have vowed to boycott the show if it debuts.
“He didn’t just buy the woman a drink: he put a drug in it… with the intent of getting her so inebriated that she let down her guard with him. Further, once she was drunk/drugged, he admitted to knowing that she wasn’t all that coherent and functioning at 100%. He then proceeded to laugh and make jokes during the video/podcast about what he did to her. So yes, not only is that some “freak shyt” it’s also rape.”
CAUTION: Video contains adult sexual situations and offensive language that might be disturbing to some.
