LeAnn Rimes is getting some backlash for a rape comment she made on Fashion Police star Joan Rivers’ YouTube show In Bed With Joan.
When Rivers asked the “How Do I Live” singer about losing her virginity, she made what some believe to be a tasteless joke about it.
“I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15?... 16,” she explained. “He was my boyfriend for like three and a half years so yeah, he was fine. I think I raped him. I think that’s how it happened.”
Fox News reports she got a ton of criticism on Twitter for the way she worded it, particularly her use of the word “rape” in such a nonchalant way.
I thought @leannrimes was just cheap entertainment but her joke about rape proved she's ignorant trash. She deserves everything she gets.

Dear universe: Please boycott @leannrimes forever. Incredibly poor taste & judgement in making rape jokes.

Rimes has yet to respond to the backlash. She appeared on Rivers’ YouTube show alongside her husband, Eddie Cibrian, but they mostly talked about her upbringing and being famous at such a young age.
