Hannibal Buress Wants to Make Sure You Remember Bill Cosby Is a Rapist

Bill Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting numerous women throughout his career. During his act at the Trocadero, Hannibal Buress wanted to remind everyone of that fact.

“It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fuckin’ smuggest old black man persona that I hate,” Buress said. “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches.”

“I guess I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns,” Buress says later. “I’ve done this bit on stage and people think I’m making it up…. when you leave here, google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ That s**t has more results than ‘Hannibal Buress.'”

That’s very true, but if you were writing about Bill Cosby raping women, you’d have to end it with “allegedly” because he’s never been convicted. He’s settled with the victims, sure, but he’s only an “alleged” rapist. He “allegedly” used his position of power to coerce women and even gaven them “herbal” pills and then sexually assaulted them. Bill Cosby is a rapist. Allegedly.

Amazing to me how Cosby gets a pass on this. Hypocrite extraordinaire. I used to be a big Cosby fan, saw him perform live twice. But no longer. Go Hannibal!
