Buress called the legendary entertainer a rapist. Pure and simple.Unfortunately for Cosby, Buress may not be too far off in his charge.
The truth is Cosby has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting multiple women, including one Barbara Bowman.
“It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the f*ckin’ smuggest old black man persona that I hate,” Buress said. “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches.”
“I guess I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns,” Buress says later. “I’ve done this bit on stage and people think I’m making it up…. when you leave here, google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ That sh*t has more results than ‘Hannibal Buress.'”
On the other hand, writes PhillyMag, Buress — who has done stand-up for years and is a regular on Comedy Central’s Broad City — praised Bill Cosby: Himself in GQ, and noted how hard it is not to curse on stage. He specifically praised Cosby’s bit on drugs, which is one of the funniest parts of that special.
