Rape Victims Who Sue For Money Are Prostitutes – Remy Ma

Remy Ma

American rapper, Remy Ma is under fire for controversial remarks about sexual assault survivors.

In a recent episode of the Revolt TV talk show “State of the Culture,” Remy Ma sat down with co-hosts Joe Budden, Eboni Williams and Brandon “Jinx” Jenkins, where they discussed sexual assault allegations against former NFL player Antonio Brown.

The 39-year-old Love & Hip Hop: New York star questioned why rape victims seek financial compensation from their attackers, hence comparing it to prostitution. In her words;

This s**t sounds crazy to me. Every time we here about [an alleged rape], it’s never like it happened this morning, yesterday, [or] over the weekend. It’s always five..seven years ago, this happened.

If you raped me, my sister, my daughter, my anything, I don’t want your money, I want you castrated. The things that I want done are crimes.

Worst-case scenario, I want something to happen to you so that you’re removed from being able to do this to someone else.

However, co-host Eboni Williams countered her remark and stated that “some people feel like that’s the compensation that they want,” suggesting that some survivors seek payment for emotional distress, therapy and loss of income due to trauma.

Remy disagreed and said;

That’s called prostitution. It’s seems like in a lot of these alleged sexual assault cases the women are asking for money.

‘Hey, give me money and I’ll feel better.’

To me, in any exchange with sexual acts of being compensated with money, that’s prostitution.

The Grammy-nominated rapper’s comment sparked instant backlash from netizens who stated that the rapper’s comment are insensitive, disgusting and irrelevant.
