    Default What the hell, Bill Cosby

    I remember there being some mini scandals over a decade ago involving Cosby's infidelity and another where a young woman claiming to be his illegitimate daughter and was charged with extorting him, but this is getting crazy

    Now old and new charges about him drugging and sexually abusing several women are rearing their head again after a black comedian called him on the carpet for judging other black americans for their lifestyle when Cosby was a "serial rapist"
    Howard Stern was talking about it and brought up an old comedy routine about "Spanish Fly"




    now NBC has cancelled a development deal for a new family sitcom, Netflix has pulled his new solo show, TV Land has pulled the Cosby show from the schedule and appearances scheduled to promote the show and a series of comedy performances have been cancelled...he refused to answer a question brought up in an NPR interview

    could Dr Huxtable be a serial rapist?

    With this many women coming out of the woodwork saying he raped them, it is starting to become a little harder to believe in his innocence.

    I want to believe him that he is innocent, but man, that's a lot of smoke!

    The guy could very well be an awesome comedian, speaker, writer, producer, etc. AND a rapist nonetheless. Though it would really suck. I think his generation still believed they were entitled to "have their way" if they reached a certain level of fame/power.

    Not that it makes you a rapist, but I once saw Cosby lose his shit on stage. The audience was stunned. I went with a buddy and my parents to see his stand up about 10-12 years ago. There was a problem with the audio, and Cosby started talking shit to the "sound guy," eventually throwing his mic down while yelling and screaming and walking off stage.

    From where we were seated, we could see him off stage gesturing and yelling at whoever would listen. Now, I get it. It's one mic for one guy. Tough to screw that up.

    He eventually made it back out on stage and resumed, but it was so seemingly out of character that it took him a while to bring the audience back to him.

    I realized then that Cosby is not the nice guy we all put on a pedestal. Of course, that doesn't mean he's a rapist, but the idealized version of Cosby that many have was lost for me that day. So it makes it easier for me to accept.

    That said, while there is a hell of a lot of smoke, it is worth noting that he has never been charged, much less convicted, and many of these women are coming out years, if not decades later. Always adds suspicion, especially when some (or at least one) has received a settlement.

    Nice to see sensible heads prevailing so far here now.

    All these celebrities suffer from nuisance allegations such as this then of course the " Access Hollywood " and so forth tabloid journalism runs it into the ground then the Charlie Potatoheads believe the allegations as reported most likely without even reading the full article or taking into context the presentation administratored by the media. Average Joe Blow Fuckward Bozo believes the shit right away calls Cosby a rapist that's the big daily chit chat around the lunch wagon, picnic table , or office that day even though theres nothing but allegations reported to the media from some woman. One would think she'd call a lawyer or the Police first. But no- she tells the media first.

    Actually, she did go to the police first and they didn't believe her because it was Bill Cosby. Judging by what these women are saying and how old Bill is reacting it's not looking good for him at all. The pattern is the same from all of the separate women and they obviously didn't have any prior contact.

    If I was innocent and accused of rape on TV and in the news,I would be doing interviews and one hour specials all day and night.

    All said and done, I think this could be the end of Bill Cosby. Can't believe he actually did a bit about drugging girls and then went on to do it, kind of like a fireman that starts fires.

    The Borough committee president an elected official used to live across street from me . One day the PA State troopers surrounded his house and arrested him on rape charges. He was dressing up as a cop and going around arresting hookers then raping them and leaving them blindfolded. He got bail but the story went viral locally and other women started coming out of the woodwork 3-4 more. He jumped bail and was eventually found by US marshals but he put a bullet in his head. Anythings possible.

    On the other hand... Don't you think he would sue the comedian that brought all of this up for slander?

    It almost seems like his strategy is that if he ignores it, he stays above it, which is why I don't think he has responded to anyone, including that comedian.

    He is so far from above this, everything he makes money off of has been cancelled and shelved. Bet the cast of The Cosby Show are furious with him right now since most of them depend on those residules. I have long feared becoming famous because of the truths and un-truths of my past that would be dug up to feed the social media monster.
