LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- LeAnn Rimes' joke about raping her boyfriend the first time she had sex is causing some social media backlash.

The country singer made the quip on a recent episode of In Bed with Joan, hosted by Joan Rivers.

Rivers asked Rimes how old she was when she had sex — 16 — and how it was.

"Was it nice? Was it bad? Was he nice?" Rivers asked.

"Well, he was my boyfriend for like three and a half years," Rimes replied. "He was fine. I think I raped him. I think that's how it happened."
Some people were offended, accusing Rimes of being flippant about a topic that shouldn't be joked about.

Take a look at the clip below. Tasteless?
