“It was never my intention to come across as a supporter of any form of assault to women” – AY Apologizes to #BBNaija’s TBoss

For a while now comedian AY has been the focus of comments on social media for making a joke out of the sexual assault on #BBNaija’s TBoss by a fellow housemate Kemen.
AY made the joke at his AY Live comedy show on Easter Sunday.
People said the jokes were insensitive as it seemed like he was defending Kemen’s actions.
AY has now issued an apology to TBoss as he shared videos of the jokes, saying it was never his intention to make her feel that way as he has a wife and a daughter and will never support any action that will promote rape or sexual assault.
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.
