Damon Wayans Defends Bill Cosby: Draws Fire From The Public
Comedian Damon Wayans has come forward to defend Bill Cosby and called the whole Cosby versus Women saga a money hustle. The women have reacted pretty badly to the news. Read on for more details.
Wayans may have stepped into a spot of trouble by defending Cosby about his whole womanizing episode. Cosby, the readers will recall, has been accused of raping several women when he was younger. Wayans came under fire when he voiced support for Cosby on the radio. He was doing an interview with Charlamagne Tha God. The show airs on Power 105.1 FM and is a part of “The Breakfast Club” show on the station.
While Wayans’ fierce name calling for the women concerned was unwarranted, he did make an excellent point about the whole drama. The comedian asked why had the women waited for forty years before coming out with the whole story? This after all is America and we pride ourselves about our free speech and the right to speak our minds. Why hadn’t the women spoken about the affair sooner and pulled Cosby into the courts sooner?
While we do not wish to take sides, it does sound a little strange that the unlikely sisterhood of women raped or sexually abused by Cosby stood up for justice so late in the day.
Wayans had gone on air to call the women petitioning for branding Cosby a criminal, “B*tches” and had labeled them unrapable. Wayans also accused these women of trying to start a money hustle.
While the whole Bill Cosby versus the women is unfortunate, it does go to show the excesses of the hippie culture of the seventies when Cosby and the women had gotten into the spot of trouble. The whole environment of free sex might have created some monsters who are probably hard to get rid of even in the present day. Nevertheless, other young comedians can learn from the experience and keep away from indulging too much in sex and drugs. After all, fame brings on its own excesses, and it is good to keep your willie in check sometimes.
