When Phylicia Rashad defended
her money Bill Cosby, she said that the evil plot to takedown a legacy is working because all of his contracts have been canceled. Phylicia was wrong. Some of Bill’s contracts remain intact, because he’s still working and is currently doing a short tour in Canada. Bill played the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario last night and during his show, the audience cheered when he dropped a rape joke. Oh, humanity, you always find a way to bring my face and my palm together.
A writer for The National Post, who was there last night, says that at one point during his set, a woman in the front row got up out of her seat and Bill Cosby, who looked like a gassy prairie dog, asked her where she was going. She told him she was going to the bar and asked him if he needed a drink. Bill said no and then shat up this heave-inducer: “You have to be careful about drinking around me.” The audience let out an “ooooooh” and those “ooooohs” quickly turned into claps and cheers. You know, it’s hilarious, because it may be true! Those people knew about the allegations and they still went, so the fact that I ate oatmeal with blueberries instead of a buttery PopTart for breakfast is a more shocking development than those people clapping at Bill Cosby’s rape joke.
Bill Cosby thinks he lives on a 50,000 foot high mountain of Pudding Pops and is untouchable, so of course he’d to this. Some celebrity wrecks poke fun at their “troubles” and “scandals” (see: Lindsay Lohan, etc….) by making jokes, but making rape jokes while facing lawsuits from women who claim you drugged and raped them? Who is Bill Cosby’s PR team? A pile of chewed-up and soggy Pudding Pop sticks? No, that’s not fair to say. A pile of chewed-up and soggy Pudding Pop sticks would do a better job handling this mess. What’s next? Bill’s going to replace Katherine Heigl as the new face of ZzzQuil or he’s going to try to prove that he’s still America’s wholesome father by manning the punch bowl at high school proms across the country?
This also happened at Bill’s show last night. A heckled was kicked out for screaming, “You’re a rapist,” at him.
