Jerry Seinfeld is in a little bit of trouble after a joke about rape is pissing a bunch of people off. During an interview for his movie "Bee Movie" Jerry said, "Bees have the only perfect society on earth … They have no crime, they have no drugs, they have no rape. A little rape, but it's not that bad."
Oh shit! Of course, the rape groups are fighting mad.
RAINN said, "Rape is not a joke. It's the most violent crime a person can live through. It is an incredibly traumatic experience that should be seriously treated and never made light of."
Students Active for Ending Rape said, "I've always been a fan of Jerry Seinfeld, but I'm not a fan of rape jokes, whoever's telling them. Working in the anti-violence field, we get accused of not having a sense of humor. But just because you're a comedian doesn't mean that everything that comes out of your mouth is funny."
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center said, "With what I hear about every single day, I don't find anything at all funny about rape, and I don't like it being made light of. I understand he's a comedian and he's inclined to find humor in everything, but it was offensive."
Jerry's rep didn't comment to Radar Online , but expect some sort of half-ass apology. That dumbass!
Our commenting rules are pretty simple: If you make any overly offensive comment (racist, bigoted, etc..) or go way off topic when not in an Open Post, your comments will be deleted and you will be banned. If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
