Wild topless protester charges at Bill Cosby outside his trial, provides a gift that keeps on giving

The level of crazy in the world just moved up another notch as cameras caught the jarring moment a topless protester charged at Bill Cosby.

With the words “Cosby” and “rapist” painted on her body, the woman jumped the barrier as the 80-year-old comedian arrived at a courthouse in Pennsylvania on Monday morning, Fox News reported.

The woman, identified by the District Attorney’s office as Nicolle Rochelle, 39, of Little Falls, New Jersey, was taken down by police and handcuffed. Rochelle, who was charged with disorderly conduct, appeared in four episodes of “The Cosby Show” between 1990 and 1992, according to Fox News.

Cosby, who was arriving at court for his sexual assault retrial, was not affected by the woman’s actions.

“He can’t see so it didn’t affect him at all,” Cosby’s spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, said.

“What concerns me is that you’re out here protesting –and you have right to protest for sexual assault victims — and you protest by taking your clothes off. What kind of message does that send?” Wyatt told reporters outside of the courthouse. “So I don’t think she solved anything for herself or for the cause that they’re out there marching for or protesting about. So I think it was a shame, it was sad, it was in poor taste.”

Social media users could apparently not un-see the images of the protester and one photo seemed to take on a life of its own on Twitter.

Without seeing the full video, Twitter users wondered what exactly was going on in the photo.
