When Joan Tarshis told the press she’d been raped by comedian Bill Cosby at the age of 19, she probably didn’t expect to get advice on how not to get raped.

On Tuesday, Tarshis visited “CNN Tonight” to discuss her memories of the 1969 assault.

She explained how she lied to Cosby, telling him she had an infection, so he forced her into oral sex, instead.

Host Don Lemon stopped Tarshis to explain there are plenty of ways to avoid being orally raped.

Then, he tactlessly proceeded to ask why Tarshis didn’t just use her teeth to bite down.

He said,

There are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it.

Tarshis patiently explained that in a situation where you’re being sexually violated while under the influence of drugs, you don’t stop every step of the way to reason out your next move.

If someone overpowers you, they’re also likely to resort to violence.

Lemon is already being ripped to shreds across the Internet for his thoughtless comments, but the video is worth seeing.

The CNN host has not yet issued a public response.

Twitter users are using the hashtag #DonLemonReporting to poke fun at the journalist’s thoughtless assertions.
