"bashing" ???


You might try asking him to answer that. After all, he gained lots of right wing fans with those words while losing a number of black fans.

Yes, one must never speak unpopular truths.

Cosby used to think that using Spanish fly was a joke:


Bill Cosby jokes about drugging women



His past rape humor is haunting him now.

things are not looking good for him

and they are getting worse by the day

Had any of this gone to trial, even if he were not found liable, his reputation would have tarnished beyond repair and that would have been the end of his lucrative Hollywood career.




..

yes the patterns are all the same and span decades

Honestly.. you'd think someone with hundreds of millions in the bank and all the celebrity and adulation one can imagine.. doesn't need to drug teenage starlets.. for comotose sex. Sounds like something a sophomore fraternity member might engage in.

It really doesn't sound like that much fun. It seems to raise an the specture of a deeply insecure, predatory and sociopathic personality. I guess Dr. Huxtable was just a front.. for a much darker character.

Well, I need quite a bit of substantial proof before I will turn on a man, but I have to think his silence on the matter isn't doing him any good!

nor are the number of accusations

one, mmmmmmmmm maybe a vendetta, two, mmmmmmmm maybe a copy cat, until I've heard their stories in full but more than that...ya gotta really question what is going on and they just keep popping up

this whole thing with CBC has unleashed a pit of wrong...and that is a good thing

Timeline of charges made against Cosby:


Timeline: Abuse Charges Against Bill Cosby -- Vulture


Evidently, these have gone on for quite a while. The recent disclosure of him trying to muzzle the AP reporter isn't doing him any good.

He has the money to buy his way out. Hard to get evidence in cases like this.

In this case, the currency the Cosby is trading in is his reputation... I don't think that his money will be able to turn the tide on this.

Once in a blue moon you come across people who finds"general principals" are more important than money. Could be one of those that f**Ks Cosby up!

All you need are allegations to crack a legacy. Doubts seldom die easily.

lol, j/k. twas a bit of a shock though.


I have nothing to add about the Bill Cosby thing, it seems its all been said already. Plus, it's been far too long since he was Mr. Huxtable to have any impact on me either way.

LOL

yeah everyone but me... ya know I still associate Julie Andrews with my girlfriend's mother because she took my girlfriend and I to see some flick with ole Julie in it and I remember something about the beads she wore being part of the humour of the comedy which even then I never found funny...I was a serious kid.

She never particularly liked me, least I didn't think she did when I was a kid, when I got older I realized the reason she did what she did was out of sheer fear but I never was comfortable with her. She always made me feel like the "poor" kid or the bad kid...and I wasn't but she made me feel that way.

Maybe that's why I never liked old Julie. I have never made it through the Sound of Music...like....never. I see her twirling on that hill and I'm over it.

Rape is seldom about 'fun' and that is possible. I never liked the guy or his shows. Found them to be quite boring.

Guilty or innocent after all these years it would be quite difficult to prove in criminal court today. Maybe they can win in a civil suit.

WHAT?!?!?!? Jeebus Crispy! What the hell is wrong with the world. First I read someone can't stand Dame Julie and now I read someone hasn't seen Mary Poppins. Just don't think I can handle this sort of information. I need....I need a hot chocolate.

the ways of the mind
trigger association I guess

weird huh

I probably wouldn't have liked her anyway, I don't even like her voice doe a deer a female deer, ray a drop of golden sun, me, a name I cal myslef...fa, a long, long way to run....blek... and same with Cosby. They seemed too clean to me, not a part of reality.

I was a serious kid. The one show I remember liking from back at that time was The Honeymooners. It came to Canada late but I liked it. I might have been 8.

My father's gf said the same thing when she found out. She offered to lend it to me. I declined. Maybe 20 years ago I would have, now its too late. I really cant stand movies or shows designed for children anymore.

Disney is pretty good at making their movies to appeal to adults to. I love disney movies, so I'm so not an objective critic.

it was just a shock. So was Sal's admission.

I think I need a nap now too.

On a lighter note what was the name of that kid's movie where the little girl said her favourite day was Sunday because it was a whole 7 days until the next Sunday?
