Felon and former actor, Bill Cosby, is upset about his trial, calling it “racist and sexist”. He’d like to be released on bail. Unsurprisingly, the world hasn’t come to a complete stop for this.
The Abuser Wants Bail
After drugging and sexually assaulting a woman, Cosby was convicted for sexual assault last year. He was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison. The abuser now wants to be released on bail, reports CNN.
Cosby has called this, “the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States.”
He’s accused the trial judge of being “prejudice”, and his lawyer has filed a motion claiming that the judge “trampled” on his rights. Cosby is calling for the judge to be removed immediately, for harboring “racial hatred” towards him.
Cosby in Gen Pop at 81
At 81 years old, Bill Cosby now lives in a 2 by 4-meter cell inside a maximum security prison outside Philadelphia. Since being moved to general population, Vulture reports, the comedian socialises with other prison inmates. There are more than 3,800 men in the jail.
He Thinks He’s a Political Prisoner
Okay, hilarious, I know. But also disturbing because earlier this year, Cosby said he has no remorse for his crimes. He fancies himself a ‘political prisoner’. (LOOOOL!):
“My political beliefs, my actions of trying to humanize all races, genders and religions landed me in this place surrounded by barb wire fencing, a room made of steel and iron,”
His spokesperson said that Cosby compared himself to men like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. I mean STFU, already!
Apparently, Cosby Never Settled
But Cosby isn’t only upset about this. He’s also annoyed that the defamation suit (brought forward by 7 women accusing him of sexual assault) was settled. Cosby’s spokesperson says that the settlement was reached without Cosby’s permission.
“Mr. Cosby did not settle any cases with anyone,” his spokesperson told CNN, saying Cosby maintains that he’s innocent.
I mean… GTFOOH.
