Popular comedian Basketmouth has been reportedly dropped by the European Union as an ambassador to sex and gender-based violence over a joke he made about rape.
According to reports, the comedian, who had been an ambassador for a good cause was dropped after he made a joke about rape, when he said that Nigerian women should be raped if they refuse to have sex on the second date.
A Twitter user made the confirmation after he was blocked by the comedian “because he’s being held accountable for his reprehensible jokes on rape and has been removed as an ambassador for the @EUinNigeria campaign against Sexual and Gender Based Violence. Words have consequences. ”
Basketmouth, who had earlier been caught in a cross at some point with popular Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh is yet to react to this update.
