Fox Co-Host Apologizes For Rape Remark [Video]

fox co host

Fox co-host Bob Beckel has been under fire since he made an insensitive remark about rape on The Five last night.

Beckel said that rape just doesn’t happen on college campuses.

Beckel said: “When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?”

Co-hosts Eric Bolling and Dana Perino interjected saying that rape, especially date rape, happens all the time on college campuses.

Beckel added: “Well date rape’s one thing but what are you going to do take out your gun and shoot your date?”

It might seem like the co-host was making a distinction between rape and date rape. You know, because he said “date rape’s one thing.” But the Fox host said today that he wasn’t trying to make light of date rape.

Beckel said:

“Yesterday, a number of people responded to what I said about date rape as if I didn’t think it was a serious issue. Of course I think it’s a serious issue. It’s a horrible, horrendous issue. And it’s simply put, this, rape is rape. Whether it’s date rape or it’s somebody coming in off the campus trying to rape somebody else. I very strongly feel that way. And so, I just want to straighten the record out on that. I simply was trying to make — there was not a distinction to make here. It simply was that date rape is rape. And that is, by any other definition, rape is rape.”

What do you think of the Fox co-hosts rape remark?

    in today's world of political correctness -it is totally frowned upon to have any thoughts or make any statement that is not popular–unless of course you are either gay or black-

    can't even post a comment -in this age of politacal correctness -one is not allowed to think freely or make an unpopular comment unless of course you are gay or black-then you can say whatever you want no matter how off base.

    Problem is that we live in a one-liner world. Explaining exactly what you mean can take a paragraph or more and people have already tuned out by the first sentence.

    Take your POLITICALLY CORRECTNESS and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. All your PC s*h*i*t offends me!

    It's reported that 1 in 5 women are raped on campus and universities while 1 in 3 women are raped in the Armed Forces and yet this of all things gets airplay.

    Good point, a gun can't protect you from date rape (unless you want to shoot your date), but an abortion can help after the fact!

    Bob is a true LIBTARD, but I am sure he did not mean anything bad by it! He is more aware of the pC side of Crap than most- I normally would not take up for his liberal retard ass, but this is just too stupid— Sounds like when PBS fired Juan Williams for a comment about what arabs wear on planes makes him nervous… Hell, it makes eveyone nervouus…. PC RETARDS!

    I am neither gay, nor black. And you are an A$$hole. But I totally support your right to speak out because I and my friends are playing a drinking game where every time an idiot tries to explain his racist, sexist or misogynistic doctrines, we take a shot of Jack. We are totally ripped and we just started reading.

    @bebogle61…that you are "playing a drinking game" is an excuse. You guys are a bunch of drunks period. By the way, I agree with Steve Smith. I believe gays and blacks do have a political correctness pass, also known as an excuse.

    Since you are putting everyone in categories, what categorize do you put yourselves in? Think hard now, no drinking, drunk or "I'm so wasted" comment6s.

    Beckel is a fat pompass $ss who doesn't deserve the time of day. I NEVER watch the Five because of him. You would think that when he paid those prostitutes all of that money for sex, he would have lost any credibility he had left. Even his wife would not have sex with him!
