Man, the poor guy. He doesn't really deserve all the sh!t being thrown his direction, and this just adds to it big time. Can't help but feel sorry for him.

Does anybody know if Kenan Thompson still does his Cosby impression on SNL? If so, I'm wondering how he feels about portraying the guy at this point.

I'm surprised by the support he's receiving in this thread. Can't underestimate the power of sitcom icon nostalgia factor I guess. But as someone that's been into the stand-up comedy scene for a long time I can say that he's been considered to be a scumbag for decades. Not even taking into account the rape stuff, he's just always been this ego maniac that tries to exert his fame and power in the entertainment industry to **** with people.

I was actually surprised when the Hannibal Burress thing took off since he was just repeating stuff that comedians have been talking about for years and years in green rooms.

It's all down to that old chest nut of comedy: timing

Well

The public couldn't turn a blind eye to his actions... so he did.

This has nothing to do with the scandal itself. This may have been happening for a long time. Did they say if he had macular degeneration or something else?

Stop giving sympathy to a rapist and rape jokes aren't funny.

I'm not giving him sympathy. Just stating the facts that this has probably been going on for some time due to old age.

Sucks for him. Being blind sounds scary.

As for feeling bad for him... eh no one deserves to go blind but it's hard to empathise with someone who apparently sexually assaulted countless women. It's not just 2 women making allegations against him but about 35. He has to be guilty.

True. Even if 90% of them have FAKE stories that's... still a good amount of women that are telling the truth.

It'd be one thing if only one or two women had made allegations against him, but that many? As Bill Maher said "Where there's smoke, there is fire."

As for Cosby & everything he's going though, I honestly don't know what to feel for him. I do however feel sorry for the jury that had to go through this, and for whoever will be in the next trial's jury.
