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.

"How much was fact?" Blitzer asked. "How much was false?"

"Well, it depended Wolf on who we were listening to," Dale replied.

"I think it's important for us as journalists to say when both sides are not alike -- and they were not alike tonight," he explained.

CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.

"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."

"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"
