Over the Easter weekend comedian AY Makun caught major heat over a joke he told at his annual comedy show – AY Live 2017.

Bringing all the BB Naija housemates on stage during the show, with disqualified housemate Kemen front and center, AY distastefully joked about how Kemen’s s*xual assault on TBoss while in the house should be blamed solely on konji…being horny.

SMH

Some in the audience laughed, others looked on in horror, while TBoss squirmed at the joke told at her expense.

You may recall that while in the house Kemen touched TBoss sexually while she was asleep. TBoss was completely unaware of what was going on & clearly did not give her consent to Kemen. The move immediately got him disqualified by the show’s organizers.

The “joke” got AY ripped to shreds on social media with many saying he supported Kemen’s actions, others defended Kemen saying after all he had apologized!

 

Earlier today AY apologized to TBoss and Nigerians for his insensitive joke saying he is no way shape & form a supporter of assault on women.

He wrote,

I know a lot of people did not see the joke before lashing on me… and no amount of me trying to explain myself would do me any good which is why I am uploading it so Nigerians and indeed all fans of the AY brand will be fully informed.

 

I want to apologize to @officialTboss_, the entire Tboss nation and Nigerians who interpreted the joke to be promoting rape. It was never my intention to come across as a supporter of any form of assault to women.

 

I was only touched and inspired to share the joke when I learnt that Kemen came out alongside other church members when Pastor Paul Adefarasin asked those under immense pressure to the point of wanting to commit suicide to step out for prayers. Also coupled with the fact that he had personally apologised to Tboss after he was disqualified.

 

Like I said in the joke, I have a wife and a daughter, and I will never be in support of any such action that is designed to promote rape or any form of sexual assault that will demean womanhood.

Good on you AY for apologizing. We need to stop rhe culture of r*pe in Nigeria & shaming the victim. 

A woman’s body belongs to her & is not there for men as a cure for konji! 

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF AY’S APOLOGY?
