The BBC is receiving backlash for airing a Bill Cosby documentary in which a self-proclaimed “fat sex therapist” argued for allowing men to pay to be able to drug and have sex with women.

“If we actually grappled with the fact that sex negativity is what causes this type of behavior, then we could create a world where in an idyllically sex-positive world, someone is able to pay conscious women to come and be drugged so that I can get my kink out, my fetish on having sex with unconscious people,” Sonalee Rashatwar said in a segment. “There’s a consensual way to do that.”

The comments were made during the four-part documentary titled We Need to Talk About Bill Cosby which originally aired in the US on Showtime last year.

We Need to Talk About Bill Cosby is a “revealing four-part documentary series from writer/director W. Kamau Bell offering a deeply personal exploration of Bill Cosby’s descent from ‘America’s Dad’ to an alleged sexual predator. Exploring the complex story of Cosby’s life and work, Bell invites comedians, educators, journalists and Cosby survivors to have a refreshingly candid, first of its kind conversation about the man, his career and his crimes. Bell takes an unfiltered look at his legacy and the unexpected ramifications for an industry that enabled him,” according to a Showtime description

Following the airing of the episode in the US, Rashatwar posted a formal apology on Instagram, writing, “Let me explain why I was wrong” in regards to the comments made.

“A culture of sex negativity does not create the conditions for rape. It creates the conditions for sex shame. Cosby is not a case of sex shame. I endorsed violence against sex workers with these words and I am so sorry. Sex workers should be treated with respect. Consent is as vital as it is in any other sexual encounter,” Rashatwar wrote.
