Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are CANCELLED for making rape jokes at a ‘Supernatural’ convention
Not a good look, guys
by Katie Way
Sorry nerds, but your demon-fighting boy-kings are problematic.Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, stars of the CW's Supernatural, joked about date rape and dropped a quick Bill Cosby reference during a panel at Creation Entertainment's Official Supernatural Convention this weekend.
When a fan asked the duo about pick-up lines during a Q&A, Jared and Jensen (known as J2 to fans) could have gone in a few different directions.
They could have pointed out the fact that they're famous, classically handsome men who probably don't need to use pick-up lines.
They could have gone with a pun. But instead, they went that classic route we all know and hate — the rape joke.
You can watch the pair reluctantly answer the question below:
"They're all really offensive," Jared says, before being really offensive. He followed up with the edgelord staple: " Excuse me, does this rag smell like chloroform to you?"
"No, Mr. Cosby," Jensen countered.
While in-person reactions to the joke were mixed, with some attendees laughing and others groaning, fans online are pissed.
jared: "does this rag smell like chloroform"
jensen: "no, mr. Cosby"

no offense, saying the rape joke was inappropriate isnt bitching over what j2 said its actually literally INAPPROPRIATE that they said it.

Other fans sought to defend the joke, saying that its intention was to mock other people who make rape jokes. Sounds fully fake, but okay.
Rape culture is when good men we love still make jokes like this without thinking. pic.twitter.com/LMg9YF5WYV

It's really easy not to joke about raping people.
And given the current climate in the entertainment industry and beyond, with new victims of sexual assault coming forward by the hour, it's an especially bad time to be poking fun at rape victims or using serial abusers as a punchline.
Jared and Jensen have yet to issue an apology for the joke, but in all likelihood it'll come soon in all its half-assed glory. Men who joke about rape: We hear you. And actually, we don't think it's funny.

Nah, because the BeautyBlender makeup shades are launching and they're all, well…mostly white. BeautyBlender is a brand that's not giving into to the inclusion trend as the makeup…
