Carrol began the interview by saying she didn't feel like a victim before admitting she wasn't 'thrown on the ground and ravished.'

CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who as interviewing Donald Trump's rape accuser and Elle columnist E. Jean Carroll, became visibly uncomfortable throughout the segment when she told him 'rape is sexy.'

Carroll, who is an advice columnist, recently accused President Donald Trump of raping her decades ago in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in New York City.

Speaking to Copper during a segment of “AC 360,” she seemed to characterize rape as something that wasn't an attack.

Carrol began the interview by saying she didn't feel like a victim before admitting she wasn't “thrown on the ground and ravished.”

“The word ‘rape’ carries so many sexual connotations,” Carroll explained.

“This was not sexual. It just … it hurt … it just was …”

Bringing some reality and perhaps morality into the interview, Cooper says, “I think most people think of rape as a … it is a violent assault; it is not sexual.”

Carroll adds, “I think most people think of rape as being sexy. Think of the fantasies.”

Stumbling over his words, Cooper then announces the network is “going to take a short break.”

Following the video, The New York Post took down an article on Carroll’s rape accusation on Donald Trump.

According to The Wrap: CNN Business, citing unnamed individuals, reports that the article was taken off the site on the orders of former NY Post editor-in-chief and Trump supporter Col Allan, who currently serves as an adviser to the paper.

The Post's article about the accusations, written by reporter Joe Tacopino, was published Friday and taken down later that same day.

The New York Post and Col Allan did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.

In an excerpt from her forthcoming memoir published Friday in New York Magazine, Carroll accused Trump of sexually assaulting her in a department store dressing room, and accused CBS chief Les Moonves of aggressively groping her in an elevator.

Both men denied the attacks, which Carroll said took place in the mid-1990s.

On Monday, Trump strongly denied the accusation in an interview with The Hill and said Carroll was lying.

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” he said.

“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her.”
