Queen Latifah Cancels Her Interview With Bill Cosby After Old Sexual Assault Allegations Come Back Up
Stories about Bill Cosby’s alleged rapist ways have been around a long time, but that horrifying shit exploded against our monitors again last week when a video of comedian Hannibal Buress calling America’s so-called beloved TV father out in one of his sets made the rounds. The allegations were pulled out from under a huge pile of ugly sweaters and people were talking about it again. Also, actress Barbara Bowman recently told The Daily Mail about how Bill Cosby allegedly drugged and assaulted her. So because all of these allegations are coming back, TMZ says that The Queen Latifah Show decided that maybe it’s not such a good idea to have him on and they snatched back their invitation.
Production sources tell us Latifah honchos didn’t want the association so they 86’d Cosby. They’re particularly sensitive because a video from Latifah’s show just went viral, showing a 13-year-old gay kid going crazy on the show after winning VIP Ru Paul tickets.
Some are slow clapping for Queen LaQueefah, because they think after years of the mainstream media not doing anything about the allegations, she’s actually doing something about it. Others are shaking their heads at the Grand Dame of the Closet (sorry, Travolta), because after years of the mainstream media pretty much ignoring the allegations, she’s continuing to ignore them by not having Bill Cosby on her show so she can ask him about them. I don’t know. I’ve seen The Queen Latifah Show and if my chihuahua could speak, he’d ask more hard-hitting questions than she does. Queen Latifah is trying to be the next Ellen DeGeneres (sans that whole “coming out” thing of course) and is not trying to be the next Diane Sawyer. If she had him on, there’s no way she’d bring up those allegations. That interview would be covered with more sugar than what’s in Wanda’s Macaroni Salad. He’d zip zop bippity bop out nonsense and when he’d offer Queen Latifah a Puddin’ Pop, she’s awkwardly decline out of fear that shit is drugged.
Queen Latifah should just cancel all of her guests and have Brendan “Diva Boy” Jordan on every single day. In case you didn’t get doused with ten waves of glitter while watching it, here’s one of the supposed reasons why Bill Cosby got kicked off of the show. Diva Boy is like a one-kid Paris Is Burning with a dash of Vera Charles from Mame. He’s like a preteen me on roids:
I love it when a clip is both relevant to the post and a palate cleanser.
