‘I’ll drink the juice’: Star in ‘Girls Trip’ sorry for saying she’d let Bill Cosby drug and rape her unconscious body

Published

Comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish is walking back her comments that she would be willing to endure a sexual assault by Bill Cosby because she is such a big fan of the disgraced comedian, reports the New York Daily News.

During an interview with the Los Angeles Times to promote her new film “Girls Trip,” the actress cited Cosby as one of her “comedic inspirations.”

“I still want to work with Bill Cosby, I don’t care, I’ll drink the juice. I’ll drink the juice and I’ll take a nap. I don’t give a damn,” she explained. “But seriously, I would love for him to play my grandfather in something.”

Haddish’s glib comments referencing how Cosby allegedly drugged his sexual assault victims caused an immediate backlash, forcing the actress to claim she had been joking.

“I don’t know if you’ve ever been interviewed before. You do 27 interviews and you’re supposed to be humorous all that time. You’re gonna say some bad jokes. You’re gonna come up with a few not-good jokes,” Haddish told reporters at a Television Critics Association gathering. “I was trying to make it seem like I’m not afraid to do anything. I’m not afraid of any kind of job, I’m not afraid to play any kind of role, as long as it doesn’t compromise my morals,.”

“I don’t agree with what he did, but at the end of the day, I’m not afraid of the big bad wolf. That’s what I was trying to say and I was trying to say it in a humorous way,” she added.

Cosby is currently awaiting retrial in November on sexual assault charges filed by Andrea Constand, who claims the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2004.
