It all started with a Hannibal Buress stand-up act, and now people can’t stop talking about what a scumbag Bill Cosby has been for God knows how long. Well, alleged scumbag. However, the details from the 2005 civil suit deposition uncovered by the New York Times have all but buried the former beloved TV dad and comedian in the court of public opinion, as everyone from Judd Apatow to Disney continues to take sledge hammers to the man’s legacy. Meanwhile, the only defender remaining in Cosby’s corner seems to be his wife, Camille, and the details of how Cosby hid his cheating (and worse) from his wife — also part of that deposition — are awful, too. Everything about this is awful.
But there are probably still Cosby supporters out there who simply cannot believe that their favorite wholesome comic could ever behave like this. “Depositions be damned!” they scream at their TVs, as they eat their Jell-O pudding pops and wipe their tears away with their hideous sweaters. For more on how to cope with fallen idols, anchors Tom Storey and Briana Lane weigh in on today’s episode of The Desk.
