These days, Bill Cosby is sitting in a prison cell, presumably harboring disturbed fantasies about offering tea to Meghan Markle.
But over the weekend, he shocked the world by taking to Twitter.
Bill Cosby’s Twitter account shared a throwback video, a Father’s Day message, and strongly implied that he’s been framed by racists.
“Hey, Hey, Hey…” Cosby’s tweet begins. “It’s America’s Dad…”
Interestingly, Matt Lauer has also been referred to as “America’s Dad.”
He’s also not too popular now that people know who he really is.
“I know it’s late,” Cosby acknowledges. “But to all of the Dads…”
He writes: “It’s an honor to be called a Father,”
“So,” Cosby’s tweet suggests. “Let’s make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our purpose.”
What purpose, you ask? Don’t worry — he spells it out.
He says that father’s have an obligation towards “strengthening our families and communities.”
“#HappyFathersDay” Cosby’s tweet is tagged. “#RenewedOathToOurFamily.”
But what is really raising eyebrows — aside from this brash tweet from a notorious monster — is the accompanying video.
“After slavery was over,” Cosby says in the throwback video. “America kept breaking up the black man’s family.”
“And,” he admits. “That’s some awful history to teach.”
“Now,” he continues. “If you wanna look history right straight in the eye, you’re gonna get a black eye.”
“Because it isn’t important if a few black heroes got lost or stolen or strained in America’s history textbooks,” Cosby suggests.
“What’s important,” Cosby explains. “Is why they got left out.”
“Now,” Cosby continues in the video. “This country has got a psychological history.”
“There was a master race, and there was a slave race,” he acknowledges.
“And though there isn’t any political slavery,” Cosby says, adding: “Anymore.”
“Those same old attitudes,” he notes. “Have hung around.”
Bill Cosby may be easily one of the most prolifically awful people we can think of, but what he says in this old, old video is true.
“The burning part of ‘Burn, Baby, Burn’ is right here in this classroom.” Cosby says.
This is when the clip reveals that he is standing in a fourth grade classroom full of students who are working on art.
He then thanks the students and their teacher for allowing him to make the video and for the artwork that they’re doing.
As you can imagine, Cosby’s out-of-the-blue tweet, both tone deaf and tasteless, caught people off guard.
This went doubly true in light of O.J. Simpson’s shocking creation of a Twitter account.
The jokes write themselves, but some Twitter denizens got creative.
That said, Cosby’s video was much worse than merely tasteless or tone deaf.
It doesn’t take an analytical genius to read between the lines.
Cosby is all but flat-out saying that America is silencing him because he’s a prominent and influential black man.
White supremacy is very real and very harmful.
But we think that Cosby’s situation has more to do with 60 women who didn’t like being drugged and assaulted.
We’re reminded of R. Kelly making very similar claims about his numerous accusers.
It take s a special kind of awful for a person to try to use real narratives of oppression to defend themselves.
Taylor Swift is reigniting her feud with Kanye West! This week, the Shake It Off singer liked an Instagram post calling the rapper’s 2016 Famous music video “revenge porn.” The post in question is a screenshot of a tweet where a fan gave an “unpopular opinion” about the Yeezus musician. […]

Bill Cosby was convicted last April of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman — after being accused by dozens more. But you’d never know it based on his first statement from prison!

A normal person would not want their name associated with Bill Cosby. Not in 2019.
R. Kelly is, by every conceivable metric, not a normal person.
The disgraced R&B singer isÂ under criminal investigation, and he’s turning to Cosby’s “fixers” to keep him out of jail.
RadarOnlineÂ reports that R. Kelly has hired the same team of “fixers” that Bill Cosby had allegedly used to try to silence his own enemies.
These would be professionals in a number of fields who might understand how to persuade multiple accusers to go silent or even recant.
“Theyâ€™re ready to do just about anything to get him off the hook,” the insider characterizes.
The source continues, noting that these professionals intend to succeed “even if it means using fear tactics.”
We’re not sure whatÂ fear tacticsÂ means in this context.
But it could mean intimidation, routine harassment, surveillance, or even blackmail of current or potential witnesses.
The disgraced 52-year-old R&B singer is said to have reached out to these “fixers” after theÂ harrowing documentaryÂ aired.
Surviving R. KellyÂ paints a terrifying portrait of what it is like to be a victim of R. Kelly’s alleged sexual predation and his violent sex cult.
Everyone is talking about it, and the public interest and public pressure have pushed law enforcement to investigate the creep.
This has backed R. Kely into a corner more than any past efforts have managed.
R. Kelly has reportedly vowed to “sue everybody” involved with the Lifetime docuseries, clearly hoping to silence his critics.
Kelly was willing to do so much more than just threaten legal actions.
AsÂ TMZÂ reported,Â Kelly planned to leak the sex tapesÂ of the survivors who spoke out against him.
A team reportedly working for him launched a website, ironically namedÂ survivinglies.
That is clear retaliation and sounds like revenge porn, which is illegal for good reason.
The singer’s attorneys stepped in and closed down the site.
“They were afraid of lawsuits,” the insider explains.
The source continues: “especially after they learned the team planned to use it to feature a revenge-porn video.”
This video, the insider says, would have been “featuring one of his victims consenting to sex.”
R. Kelly has been accused of having used grooming, violence, starvation, and psychological manipulation to keep multiple women obedient and afraid.
A video of a woman giving some sort of verbal consent would not have disproved any accusations.
Instead, the tactic would have discouraged other women from coming forward for fear of having their own nightmares broadcast on the internet.
But thankfully, not only were plans for the site scrapped, but even a Facebook page devoted to the site was taken down.
“We do not tolerate bullying or sharing otherâ€™s private contact information,” Facebook explained in a statement.
Facebook continued: “and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as weâ€™re aware.”
Legal prosecutions, especially of complicated sex crimes that took place over years and decades, can be difficult to prosecute.
Additional witnesses may be reluctant to come forward because society and especially R. Kelly fans may not want to hear what they have to say.
We can only imagine the sort of courage that it took for everyone who participated in Surviving R. Kelly.
