Since the success of his Netflix show, an old podcast clip of David Choe making headlines in which he shared bizarre comments on a sexual interaction with a masseuse. While the Beef is being widely praised by the fans, investigative journalist Aura Bogado shared a clip on Thursday from his 2014 podcast, DVDASA.

During his now-defunct podcast, he opened up about performing s*x acts in front of his massage therapist whom he called Rose. He further mentioned that he involved her in his acts against her will. While explaining his inappropriate behavior, he stated,

 “You never ask first, you just do it, get in trouble and then pay the price later.”

Though his co-hosts reminded him of his heinous deed, he stated, “I just want to make it clear that I admit that that’s rapey behavior, but I am not a r*pist.”

He is yet to address the following backlash after his resurfaced video was made public but he released a statement back then.

Soon after the journalist’s tweet went online, Twitterati started calling out the actor for his inappropriate comments. Check out the tweets here.

Though he hasn’t responded to the same, he released a statement in 2014 claiming, “it’s bad storytelling in the style of douche.”

He denied assaulting the woman as he stated,

“I never thought I’d wake up one late afternoon and hear myself called a r*pist. It s*cks. Especially because I am not one. I am not a r*pist. I hate r*pists.”

He further continued,

“We create stories and tell tales. It’s not a news show. It’s not a representation of my reality. It’s not the place to come for reliable information about me or my life.”

Not only his “storytelling” heavily affected the netizens, but it also was disturbing on several levels. Netizens are continuing to slam the artist for his indecent behavior. The popular show is also under hot waters as users are demanding the actor be removed from the series.
