Many don't see the recent rape allegations against comedian Bill Cosby as funny, but the famed TV dad seemed to make light of the situation. According to the National Post, the energy shifted midway through the performance when a woman in the front row stood up and began to leave. After noticing what was happening, the comic asked the lady a question to which she replied that she was going to get a drink, even offering to get him one. Cosby's response then turned everything upside down. "You have to be careful about drinking around me," he said before a loud collective "oooooh" and cheers from the crowd.

Later on in the show, two men in the audience were escorted out after yelling, "You are a rapist!" at the 77-year-old.

This incident comes just days after Cosby's former TV-wife Phylicia Rashad defended him against the rape claims.
