The Bill Cosby rape allegations aren’t dying down anytime soon, but it looks like he’s finally speaking out on them… well, in his own way.
During a show in Melbourne, Florida this past Friday night, the comedian hit the stage and fake cried in front of a packed audience – you guessed it, it was all part of his act.
Telling the audience, “I didn’t know, I didn’t know” repeatedly as he told a story from his granddaughter’s birthday, his performance eventually led to a standing ovation from the crowd.
As far as responding to the actual rape allegations, Mr. Cosby told a local reporter right before the show:
“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”
News also broke that a local radio station offered $1,000 to any audience member who would agree to heckle Bill Cosby during his show, to which he responded:
“So today I was informed of this radio station that is offering money for people to stand up and heckle in order to collect prizes and money.”
“The thing is, these people are prodding and pushing people and asking people to have a frat house mentality. Now suppose someone brings a weapon or decided to do more foolishness. There will be announcements made and the stations made some disclaimers, but what if people don’t listen to what they said and they entice violence?” he said. “That’s not good for anyone.”
It looks like not everyone is scrutinizing The Cosby Show actor for the allegations, as comedian Faizon Love recently tweeted an entire rant of provocative tweets that definitely rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.
“I see these other house n*ggas chimed in this is why you sorry n*ggas are last in everything this is why… you stand for nothing. This is why your kids are murdered and you march then take your sorry ass to the mall, dumb porch monkeys we don’t need you educated fools.”
He continued, “You sorry porch monkey deserve everything you get… you gonna stand up for this b*tch and and not a man like Mr. Cosby… everytime one of these funky b*tches Say rape you house n*ggas jump on the bandwagon, you mamas and daddys been rapped for 400 years.”
“You monkey n*ggas are so funny,” wrote Love. “Next time one of your kids or your friend, are murdered you cal one of those fake b*tches that was raped better yet call Hannibal Burres,” he added, referring to the comedian whose recent discussion of Cosby’s allegations on stage helped fuel a resurgence of media attention. Love then said, “There children out here being rape you sorry b*tches don’t say sh*t, let some old wrinkled b*tch say a n*gga did you upset f*ck you n*ggas.”
… and the saga continues.
