Bill Cosby just had, as Queen Elizabeth once famously noted of herself, an
“annus horribilis” – a year of misfortune.
Many would say this was self-created and WELL-deserved. He was America’s favorite dad –a long time ago. But for years there were whispers that Cosby was drugging and sexually assaulting young women and it looks like Cosby’s dirty deeds have come back to haunt him. At this point, nearly 60 women have stepped forward to reveal what he did. With the statute of limitations on one of the cases just days from running out, Cosby was arrested for sexual assault.
On New Year’s Eve, Cosby sent out a tweet to his “friends and fans,” who support him. As you can see below, it did not go well. There are still, inexplicably, many Cosby apologists out there, but at this point most people believe the women. Twitter has it’s trolls but it always has plenty who are willing to tell Cosby what a hypocrite he is –and worse. Read ’em and weep, Bill.
Many people pointed out that Cosby is innocent until proven guilty, which, is true. However, he did admit under oath that he used quaaludes on women he wanted to have sex with… so, it looks iffy that he can take that back. He’ll have his day in court — but so will his wife, as she is being called to testify– and so should the victims. Who cares about his “TV legacy” as America’s favorite Dad.
