It appears nothing's off limits for Tina Fey and her pal, Mindy Kaling.
The two comedians appeared at the 92nd Street Y in New York City on Wednesday as part of the 36-year-old Kaling's book tour for Why Not Me?, when 45-year-old Fey struck up controversy with a game of "Would You Rather?"
After Kaling joked that she would make out with Donald Trump "for a couple hours," Fey quickly followed it up by inquiring who she'd rather sleep with, the 69-year-old presidential hopeful, or 78-year-old Bill Cosby?
While Kaling paused to think about it, Fey shockingly quipped, "With Bill Cosby you could sleep through it."
Over 50 women have alleged that the Cosby Show star sexually assaulted them in the past. Cosby has never been charged with a crime and maintains his innocence, though in a 2005 deposition from a civil sexual assault lawsuit -- which was made public in July -- he admitted under oath to obtaining Quaaludes to give to "young women" that he "wanted to have sex with."
This isn't the first time Fey has made jokes about Cosby. In 2009 -- years before the multiple rape allegations resurfaced against Cosby after comedian Hannibal Buress made a joke about him in a stand-up set last October -- her NBC show, 30 Rock, vaguely alluded to misconduct. Buress also wrote and appeared in 30 Rock.
"Bill Cosby, you got a lot of nerve getting on the phone with me after what you did to my Aunt Paulette!" Tracy Morgan's character, Tracy Jordan, yells to a Cosby impersonator on the phone in the now infamous scene. "1971. Cincinnati. She was a cocktail waitress with the droopy eye!"
