    • Toodurc Y’know what? Put yourself in Clifton’s shoes. Would you like it if YOU would be falsely accused of rape and everyone would make a joke, that “Oh the lst thing he raped was his pet cat!”. Let’s see how YOU would be butthurt after that.

    • Toodurc I mean, the joke’s hilarious, because GTA San Andreas was the game that i grew up with in my childhood, but the joke’s not that funny if he goes accusations like that!

    • Toodurc Oh so you would give zero fucks from raping a 12-year old? Good. Then bring some FUCKING BRIBES IN THE COURT IF SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD HAPPEN. Oh and i would gladly stall you to the BULLSHIT CENTER. OF BEING NOT ADOPTED.

  1. If someone falsely yells rape, they are just as guilty as the individual that they are accusing.

    • Charles Crump so,you’re basically telling me that the person who falsely accused the man for raping her isn’t guilty?
      Cause the man being accused isn’t guilty. (For all we know)

    • rupinder kaur either what you said made 0 sense or I’m missing something. If you say someone raped you knowing they’re innocence and forge evidence or end up succeeding then to be found out later on to have lied then you should do the same sentence of the innocent and 25%. Maybe not for people who were actually raped but get the wrong person but it should be made a felony for those doing it out of spite or for settlement money.

  2. I’ll have two number 9 number 9 large number 6 extra dip number 7 ay two number 45 one with cheese and a large soda.

  3. keep your head up og clifton powell, I respect your body of work
    a woman can sometimes be a good man’s downfall , every ten to twenty it’s always a false sexual assault allegation. and it’s sad when it’s women or person of the same color most of the time that tries to tear a good successful black man down or vice versa
    same thing happened to tupac .
    This is so crazy to me….
