Comedian, Ayo Makun popularly known as AY has apologised for making jokes about the sexual assault incident between TBoss and Kemen in the Big Brother Naija House.
The comedian had joked about the incident at his AY Live show on Sunday.
Nigerians had lambasted the movie producer over the joke which was considered distasteful.
In a statement on his Instagram page on Wednesday, AY apologized to TBoss and her fans.
He said he told the joke after learning that Kemen was under pressure to commit suicide.
“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,” he wrote.
“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,” he wrote.
“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.”
