Cincinnati radio station offers tasteless Ben Roethlisberger rape warning

The Bengals and Steelers play each other this weekend in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. As things often happen during big games between two rivals, it has gotten out of hand.

WLW 700 in Cincinnati has issued a rape warning for women 18-40 because Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is in the area.

“The Steelers quarterback has been spotted in the downtown Cincinnati area. All females ages 18-40 are to use extreme caution, especially if heavily consuming alcohol. Males should also be on the lookout just in case.”

For the record Roethlisberger was never found guilty of raping anyone. Of course the real problem here is that people believe making jokes about rape in any fashion constitutes funny.
