“This has been the most racist & sexist trial in the history of US” – Bill Cosby’s Publicist

Bill Cosby

Reacting to Bill Cosby‘s Tuesday three to ten years sentencing for sexual assault, publicist Andrew Wyatt has described the court’s decision as ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’.

Variety reports that while speaking outside the courthouse on Tuesday, Cosby’s publicist said: “This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States.”

He further blamed it all on  “white women who make money off accusing black men of being sexual predators”.

Wyatt added: “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened ? Mr. Cosby is fine. He’s holding up well. Anyone who wants to say anything negative, you’re a joke as well.”

Andrew Wyatt isn’t the only one who feels that the court didn’t give a fair verdict. Cosby’s wife through a spokesperson accused the prosecutors of using “falsified evidence.”

      This is my reason for standing against these movements, they comprise of women filled with bitternesss looking for who to victimize for their pain. I strongly believe from time that bill cosby is the victim, he just got unfortunate. Imagine how bitter one can be to the extent of jailing a man who is close to his death bed.

      Are you really this stupid? This rapist called Bill Cosby admitted to drugging women without their consent and you feel bad for him? You stand against movements where women seek for justice? You know what, let’s have this conversation when somebody rapes you, your daughter, or your mum. We will revisit this convo and see if you still have empathy for rapists and still stand against justice-seeking movements.

      exactly, why didnt they speak up when it happened…let the old man be on house arrest…jail is not fair.

      Jail isn’t fair? Really? You know what else is not fair? RAPE!! Argh! Human beings ain’t it ??‍♀️

      And you guys don’t read do you? People have been trying to get justice since the late 80s… I’m particularly glad for the shame he’s getting at this age. Let it be a deterrent to scumbags who think they can get away with being inhumane.

      From a religious perspective, doesn’t the Bible that y’all like to thump maniacally explicitly say you will reap what you sow?

      It’s a keen reminder of how the respect of age in Nigeria continues to limit our perspective about everything.

      Buhari does something alarmingly imbecilic. You call him out on it and someone jumps us to ask if that’s how you speak to someone old enough to be your grandfather.

      Cosby clearly admits to drugging and assaulting young women in his prime and we’re told that the victims must be witches to keep pursuing justice against him, when we really should allow the man enjoy his bonding with his grandchildren in peace.

      All of this, notwithstanding the fact that some of those women went through years of dealing with their pain, trying to heal as they watched him keep rising as they battled with their own personal demons (including thoughts of suicide) and due to what happened to them…. however, in our eyes, poor grandpa is the one suffering now.

      With just 10000 dollars, I can get more than 100 women or even young little boys to accuse you of molestation… It is not rocket science

      And who is Bill Cosby by the way and by the bush that the entire world will collude to “take him down” ?? Like really, please tell me. (p.s. quotations because nobody gave a fk about Bill Cosby anymore. Some sensible schools of thought even argue that his waning social status is why this conviction finally came through).
      But maybe you’re right, rape and harassment doesn’t exist… it’s all made up every single time to pull men and women down… or maybe ???

      @BAWLAR/AWKWARD/ET AL, it is not mutually-exclusive to condemn crimes while showing empathy towards criminals. That underlies virtually every charity aimed at convicted prisoners.

      COCOA will probably be better placed to help me here but those who subscribe to the Christian faith nor indeed any religion would have heard the injunction of hating the sin without necessarily hating the sinner. Bill Cosby is not a uni-dimensional person. He made so many positive contributions to his community and humanity (and broke so many barriers that others have benefited, and will continue to benefit, from), while simultaneously having this dark horrible evil side to him (that was for so many years secreted away). There’s no reason why we cannot acknowledge both!

      What should be breaking your heart is, the act of evil not his age. Damn, what is wrong with y’all? I don’t care if he’s a blind 100yr old, there’s consequence for your bad actions. Justice must be served. Whether here or in hell. Unless they repent. I separate sentiment from evil. He should have thought about his own legacy before his bad act. oh he though he will get away. Well, he thought wrong.

      Now what is pissing me off is the fact that white men and women get off easily. Harvey weinstein, Asia Argento, Trump, many others should be investigated and justice brought to them. All those catholic priests who are guilty of molesting, sexually abusing those boys need to be in prison.

    This saddens me deeply
    I guess now he can run for president or Supreme Court justice since he has the criteria.

    Absolutely nonsense 99% white men in Hollywood and in capital Hill (government) are known pedophiles yet are all walking free

    Trump, Harry Weinstein, Kovonaught etc are all walking free. This is some bullshit

    I still will respect the values I learnt from Cosby show

    The white bitch who was the cause of death of Emmitt till and confessed in 2017 was not arrested nor jailed cos she’s in her 80s

    • californiabawlar

      September 26, 2018 at 10:04 am

      It’s disrespectful to invoke Emmitt… for Bill Cosby? really?! Sis you’re better than this line of thinking. And no, the investigation has been reopened and is active.

      Lastly fck all them men you listed above, but I’ll take justice wherever it is offered for now.

      I hope that lady burns in hell. She waited that long to say she lied then escaped time due to her age. Skin color and sex shouldn’t be a determining factor, their action, what they did and said should be the focus. The emmitt Till story is still one of the most devastating stories ever. It breaks my heart heavily everytime I hear it. Sometimes, I wish God can just destroy this whole world. Humanity is too evil.
      Yes, a lot of women lie but it doesn’t negate the other truth and real stories.

    OH please
    the man admitted to assaulting women in his deposition years ago
    he is guilty and he need to justice needs to be served
    he needs to stop playing the race card
    and @eve let someone assault you or someone you love and let’s see if you will have sympathy because of old age and/or disability
    people need to stop belittling sexual assault
    We are so quick to attack victims and sympathise with culprits
    Do better folks

    Yeah but he’s also a sexual predator who has been harassing women for years.

    Racist Ni, prejudiced ko
    He did it let him pay the cost…

    On a kind of separate note… young black successful men be careful with these women flocking around you o especially white women! There are numerous stories of lies and blackmail please be careful!

    This statement hits me the wrong way……”white women who make money off accusing black men of being sexual predators”.

    Question is did he commit the crime? Yes!
    Did he have option of black women? Yes!
    I am female and I believe very much in black movement where it just but not everything you will call racist. I am not for it.

    I am not too pleased myself I honestly feel sentimental about this but he laid his bed and he is sleeping on it. God should have mercy on all of us.

    When your pastor preaches about the enemy within this is it. He could not discipline himself and it is bringing him a not so pleasant end.

    All of you in banks, HR practices and other positions of influence and are abusing teh grace and privilege watch out!

    Bill Cosby’s lawyer is hoping team ” hotep” aka fake woke will do what they do best by getting angry irrationally and cry for social justice. Not today satan. To some extent I actually get what Felinda is saying, but I don’t think it’s like an like or even something that ought to be brought up at this point. Bill Cosby was, no IS a sexual predator. He deserves what he is getting end of story. This is not about sexism, racism or whatever kind of isms. Harvey Weinstein’s is still ongoing and he is every bit as prolific as Bill Cosby, so let us see how that ends also (I read something about charging him for rape or so somewhere..) In all fairness, in America, you cannot be blind to the effect of race at every social institution, but to use that to call for sympathy for a sexual offender? Nah, We are not on it! This is where race, and sexism becomes a very interesting issue isn’t it? I find it very interesting how a man can say the trial and subsequent punishment of a serial sexual predator is as a result of “sexism”. lool. Isn’t that just prima facie ironical?

    Everything hidden in the dark will be brought to light. Some people’s sins are still haunting them decades after…it is NOT unjust.
    We all have to REAP what we SOW.
    When we accept Jesus our sins are blottedout and forgotten BY GOD…but MAN IS NOT GOD. Man remembers and seeks restitution.

    You can accomplish great things on earth …you still won’t be immune from the wages of your sins.

    This is why THE WISE hide the PRECEPTS OF GOD in HIS HEART…that he might NOT SIN AGAINST GOD.

    To walk in the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ will lead to a life BLAMELESS BEFORE GOD AND MAN.

    LET HE WHO HAS EARS HEAR!!!!

    Nigerians always plying on the empathy where there is none – BC raped and he is now been served. The law spoke on behalf of these women who refused to be silenced.

    September 26, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    I see it from another angle. So many people that committed bigger crimes than him are still walking free and they may never get to reckon on their evils and get to repent but big BC has a chance in the jail to think about his past and make peace with God or is that not why people are sent to jail?

    it is never too late to pay for the crimes you committed.
    Some of you feel sorry for him coz he is old lol!! but how about the women he assaulted ? these women who have lived their lives with this weight and could not speak up back then ?? do y’all feel sorry for them too ?
    I am sure his mates who were drugging women back in the day are shaking/praying women (and men) don’t speak up because I am certain he has friends who were into these things..
