Jerry Lawler Had Some Predictably Sexist Things To Say About Sexual Assault, WWE Divas, And Bras And Panties

It probably won't surprise you to learn that Jerry "The King" Lawler has some controversial opinions about sexual equality and sexual assault but his comments here are more horrendous than you might expect.

During the latest edition of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler's podcast, the topic of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and equality for women. However, the conversation took a turn for the worst when the WWE commentator let his feelings on all of those topics clear. You see, he's not a fan of something being done about all the awful allegations which have been made as of late.

"It’s so crazy. This is my view," Lawler said. "It appears that eventually anybody that’s ever flirted with anybody or had any kind of sexual contact with anybody is, all of a sudden, you could potentially be a target in the future." When his co-host tried to explain how serious the allegations have been and that people have been drugged and raped, he laughed. 
 
"I’ve seen pictures in the past of wrestlers, I’m not gonna say who or whatever, this was guys, but as a joke or a prank, a wrestler falls asleep, and another guy comes over and says ‘take a picture of this’ and he takes his genitals out and puts it near the guy’s face," Lawler recalled. "It’s a prank and it’s done in jest, but it’s like a college kid’s prank. I’ve seen that done before." After adding that something that's harmless at the time can resurface and then be deemed offensive, Lawler still wouldn't take on board that his co-host was referring to actual sexual assault as opposed to pranks between wrestlers on the road. 
 
"Pfftbt. I don’t know. I’ve never heard of anything like that happening before. But gosh, the times have just changed so much. Good grief. I remember the stuff at commentary, things that we would be able to get away with saying, that nowadays, god, people’s heads would explode. Could you imagine going out and saying, get ready, tonight, we’ve got a bra and panties match. That used to be the highlight of a show. A bra and panties match." Yes, he actually said that and went on to make it clear that he's not exactly a fan of the fact women wrestlers are now treated equally rather than being dismissed as "Divas."
 
"Good grief, we’ve gone so far now we can’t even refer to them as divas. The women have to be treated the same as the men. I don’t know. That’s just the way times have changed."
