No, this is a beat-up.

Pretty much every man over 30 has to really look and start thinking about their part. And I guarantee, lots of it is unconscious. When you’ve been in a privileged position where you haven’t had to look at your part, you didn’t 100% understand you were in a bubble. It’s an interesting time for men.
Actress Jodie Foster has claimed that “pretty much every man over 30” has to consider their part to play in the recent sexual harassment scandal that has engulfed Hollywood since the emergence of misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
From these sources we can see there is no mention of the word "rapist" - either metaphorically or literally (as "full-blown" would suggest). The topic of discussion is sexual harassment, not rape.
There is no suggestion that "every single man" is directly engaging in rape and/or sexual harassment.
