Rapper Towkio Aims To "Talk Out" Rape Allegations With Alleged Victim
"I am deeply saddened by the recent allegations made by Morgan." —Towkio
After being accused of rape allegations of his former girlfriend, rapper Towkio has commented on claims of sexual harassment while encouraging the opportunity for open dialogue between the two involved parties.
Posting a four-paragraph letter to Twitter (Jan. 6), the "Hot Sh*t" artist denied allegations against him.
"I am deeply saddened by the recent allegations made by Morgan," the 25-year-old wrote. "To provide necessary context, she and I were in an ongoing consensual sexual relationship dating back to 2014 which even included other women. I only say this to provide context and in no way to victim blame."

His note continued urging the utmost importance for him, her and the world to " know with 100% certainty and my hand to God that I would never engage in any intercourse with any women without full consent. While I absolutely deny these allegations, I feel awful that I would be a source of pain for her. It is my hope that her and I can engage in a dialogue in a place where she feels comfortable to discuss our relationship and her feelings."
The accusation stemmed from a February incident in 2016 where according to the alleged victim gave into sex after repeatedly declining due to irritation from a Yeast infection. Once the two began having sex, when the woman began to experience pain she asked for the "Morning View" emcee to stop, but he did not.
Since claims have gone viral, fans have dug-up questionable tweets from 2011 where the musician tweeted "We low-key rape women."
