"Was it nice? Was it bad? Was he nice?" Rivers asked.
"Well, he was my boyfriend for like three and a half years," Rimes replied. "He was fine. I think I raped him. I think that's how it happened."
Some people were offended, accusing Rimes of being flippant about a topic that shouldn't be joked about.
I thought @leannrimes was just cheap entertainment but her joke about rape proved she's ignorant trash. She deserves everything she gets. Julianne (@Julianne_Gatlin) August 27, 2014
"Jokes" about #rape are never funny. If #LeannRimes was a man people would be calling for her head on a spike. What an annoying idiot she is Lily Rose (@takethewords) August 27, 2014
Dear universe: Please boycott @leannrimes forever. Incredibly poor taste & judgement in making rape jokes. Meghan Meehan-Draper (@MegMeehanDraper) August 28, 2014
