Bill Cosby is currently on three-date standup tour in Canada, full of standing ovations and heated protests in light of ongoing sexual allegations against the comedy legend. The dividing line is clear and the supporters have been coming out left and right, something I can only assume has given Cosby a little confidence.
That’s the only way I can really understand these comments he made to the audience and were then Tweeted out by at least 8 reporters at the show:
I’m not sure how to feel about this. I guess one way to look at it is he’s a guy who knows he isn’t guilty of a crime, so he’s going to joke about it. Make light of the situation and get people laughing. Good, clean fun with the Cos!
Of course that means the other way of looking at it is picturing Cosby as a giant peacock waving his crimes in the face of his critics and accusers, making a mockery of it on stage and showing that none of it truly affects him. What do you think?
