Is he trying to make us hate him? Must be. Kanye West tweeted emphatically yesterday that Bill Cosby is “innocent.” This support for Cosby seemingly came out of nowhere. As you well know, the unfunny man has been charged with aggravated indecent assault in a 2004 incident at his suburban Philadelphia home in which a former Temple University women’s basketball assistant accuses him of drugging and molesting her. Dozens and dozens of other women also have come forward to accuse Cosby of rape and unwanted sexual contact in incidents going back to the 1960s. Several of those women have sued Cosby for defamation. Cosby has denied wrongdoing.
Sarah Silverman expressed her disbelief on Twitter as did others.
Cosby’s lawyers lost their attempt to get the criminal case thrown out last week on the grounds that a previous prosecutor had agreed not to charge Cosby. In December, West debuted a song, “Facts,” which includes a line about the 78-year-old comedian.
“Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? Did he forget names just like Steve Harvey?”
If you are writing a book on how to get people to NOT like you, study this one.
