Wow, I can't believe the outburst he had. Does he not understand why you behave well in court? I mean sentencing hasn't even happened yet.

His comedy is ruined for me since all this came out and he was obviously up to very skeevy stuff.

And I mean, the dude who chided black men for how they dressed an acted turns out to be a major creepy rapist? Hypocrisy much?

I remember Richard Pryor's wife talking about how she didn't like Cosby because he gave Richard hell for doing comedy dirty, even though he was a decent guy irl, and surely that's better than working clean and living dirty.

I am very relieved. If he had not been convicted after he had openly admitted to giving young women drugs, that would have been a terrible setback. How many women would come forward if someone with wealth and fame were so immune?

Heck, men without wealth and fame are fairly immune, though that does seem to have shifted bigly in the last year. I'm happy as long as we don't overcorrect things.

Since the allegations (let alone the conviction) started coming out, bits from Cosby's routines decades ago started giving me the creeps. If a guy starts joking in a way you don't think anybody could be serious about, don't assume he must be getting all edgy and ironic. He could actually have a twisted idea of what's funny.
