Comedian Njugush was on Saturday forced to delete a video on social media after being bashed for promoting rape.

Njugush, who routinely uses his social media platform to speak out on social issues and promote his work, had posted a short video and complained of the frustrations men go throw to entertain women.

In captions that accompanied the video, Njugush observed that once a relationship is based on material things, everything you do in that relationship will always be material.

He complained of how men incur debts to take their women on dates.

But his statement that angered some fans was; "Siendi home pekee yangu wadau... angesema mapema kablanikope pesa bana."

He finished his caption by writing; "If this video seems inappropriate to you pole... ... ukweli saa zingine hukaa inappropriate."

A fan by the name deekerubo commented; 'Wow. This is totally in bad taste, Njugush. Borderline rapey. This is how brands are ruined. Seems like you're promoting rape culture. No Bueno."

In his defense, the comedian said he was only talking about how money should not be a scale of romance.
