Bill Cosby Wasn’t ‘Publicly Lynched’; He Hanged Himself

Just hours after Bill Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault, his publicists were busy making the media rounds. 

Publicist Andrew Wyatt called his recent guilty verdict a “public lynching,” and publicist Ebonee Benson invoked the story of Emmett Till—whose accuser, Carolyn Bryant Donham, admitted that she lied, which resulted in his murder—as evidence that all women aren’t honest. Please read that to yourself a few times. A public lynching. Emmett Till. I know they have a job to do, but good gotdamn.

The irony of that statement being uttered as a memorial dedicated to actual lynching victims opens in Montgomery, Ala., is nothing short of astounding. Bill Cosby is a grown-ass man who used his position to prey on and sexually assault dozens of women, and they’re using one of the linchpin stories that ignited the civil rights movement in concert with his case. That’s some Kanye-level trolling. And stupid. And ignorant.
Bill Cosby Wasn’t ‘Publicly Lynched’; He Hanged Himself
Fuck them.

And fuck anybody who is actively on the Bill Cosby defense train. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Bill Cosby was convicted yesterday of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for the 2004 drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand. It’s a conviction in her case, but it represents a conviction for so many other women Cosby preyed upon. Each count carries a sentence of up to 10 years for the 80-year-old formerly known as “America’s dad.” Yeah. OK. All right. Let him go sit his ass in jail.

Cosby wasn’t lynched. He hanged himself.
