Ludacris Comments On Bill O’Reilly Sex Debacle

Bill O’Reilly

is currently in hot water over a sexual harassment complaint filed by a former

associate producer, who accuses the Fox TV host of inappropriate behavior.

DTP/ Def Jam rapper

Ludacris, who O’Reilly took to task over explicit lyrics, had a few words

for his nemesis – void of overt hatred or ill will.

Last year O’Reilly

led a movement that caused Ludacris to lose an endorsement deal with Pepsi.

“I’ll

be real, I always give somebody the benefit of the doubt,” Ludacris told

AllHipHop.com. “He’s just being accused. It’s innocent until

proven guilty. Its just bad press for him now.”

According to reports,

former associate producer Andrea Mackris claims that O’ Reilly bought

her a vibrator and gave her instructions on how to use it.

O’Reilly

supporters have denied the claim and pointed out that Mackris, a former White

House intern, turned down a $2 million dollar settlement in order to pursue

$60 million dollars, which the talking head described as “extortion.”

Despite the denial

of wrong doing, Mackris alleges that she has confirmation of her sexual harassment

claims, a tape of the conversations.

Ludacris homed

in on the alleged evidence against the "O’Reilly Factor" host.

“The fact

that there [might be] proof that he said ‘certain words’ is really

killing me,” Ludacris laughed. “I’d be lying if I didn’t

say it brings a smile to my face. These are words that I say and this mother

f**ker is saying the same words that I say and is criticizing me?”

O’Reilly, who has

a wife and two children, said the tapes would vindicate him.

Mackris and her

attorney, Benedict Morelli, have been ordered to appear in New York State Supreme

Court this Friday, to prove the tapes exist and to "show cause" as

to why O’Reilly’s lawyers cannot examine them.

Although, he’s

remained affable regarding the case, O’Reilly isn’t out of Ludacris’

crosshairs just yet.

“I’m

not going to say that I am going to exploit it to the fullest, but I am going

to have a field day with it,” Ludacris said. “I’m not going

to say exactly what I’m going to do.

Mackris, an associated

producer of “The O’Reilly Factor,” claims that O’ Reilly

started to sexually harass her in 2002. O’Reilly has since countered with

his own lawsuit, claiming that Mackris is attempting to extort him.

In the lawsuit,

Mackris claims that O’Reilly bragged about trysts with two Scandinavian

women and his sexual exploits with women in Bangkok.

A 2002 interview

with Stuff magazine lent credibility to Mackris’ claims.

"The most

beautiful women in the world are located in two countries: Norway and Thailand,”

O’Reilly told the magazine. “No question. It’s just a matter of

genetics. You have Norwegians: They are blond and blue-eyed. They are healthy.

They are tall and Viking-esque. In Thailand, it’s just a very elegant look.

Beautiful women. The most unattractive women in the world are probably in the

Muslim countries. You can’t see them."

While Ludacris

may take a few shots at O’Reilly, he stated that his career was moving

on and the O’Reilly and Pepsi incident were closed chapters in his career.

“You can

just say, I’ve had my time talking about this individual,” Ludacris

said. “But let’s just say this – I named my daughter Karma,

so there you have it.”

Luda’s new

album, The Red Light District, drops on December 7.
