During a stand-up routine in Philadelphia Thursday, black comedian Hannibal Buress came down hard on fellow comic Bill Cosby, and it wasn’t funny.
Here’s what he said via Buzzfeed (strong language) :
Thirteen? And it’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fucking smuggest old black man public persona that I hate. 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 raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple notches. I don’t curse on stage. Well, yeah, you’re a rapist, so, I’ll take you sayin’ lots of motherfuckers on Bill Cosby: Himself if you weren’t a rapist. …I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns. …I’ve done this bit on stage, and people don’t believe. People think I’m making it up. …That shit is upsetting. If you didn’t know about it, trust me. You leave here and Google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ It’s not funny. That shit has more results than Hannibal Buress.
“Way to ruin pudding for America,” was one response, but others were more serious.

Cosby isn’t mad that Hannibal Buress called him a rapist. Now, if Buress had said, “You be a rapist” … — Bane Hogschwartz (@benschwartzy) October 21, 2014
