Welcome to Donald Trump's America.
Like most channels airing reruns of The Cosby Show, Bounce TV removed the popular '80s sitcom from its lineup last year following a wave of sexual assault allegations against its lead star Bill Cosby.
But as it turns out, the country really isn't bothered by an alleged sexual assaulter in the White House — so, why should we care if one is on TV??
Well, Bounce TV is giving the people what they want, announcing over the weekend it would once again air reruns of the beloved (though forever tainted) sitcom at the end of 2016!
The Atlanta-based network made the announcement on Twitter, sharing:
As you know, Bill Cosby faces three charges of felony indecent assault and 10 years in prison stemming from an alleged 2004 incident involving Andrea Constand, who claims the Cosby Show star drugged and violated her.
In a new motion filed in Pennsylvania court on Thursday, the attorneys for the 79-year-old argued the actor's visual impairment will make him unable to defend himself at his criminal trial.
In a footnote of the motion, the defamed actor's reps claim Cosby has registered with a state commission as "legally blind," which means he has a vision of 20/200 or less in the better eye, according to the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind.
This, they say, will make it impossible for Bill to identify his many accusers in court.
He will supposedly provide a doctor's report to the court at the pretrial, which is set to begin November 1.
According to CNN, Cosby's lawyer stated:
This is a big step in the right direction!
On Wednesday, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill — called SB813 — that will end the 10-year statute of limitations for prosecuting certain rape and child molestation cases.
The measure was inspired by Bill Cosby's alleged attacks, many of which came to light decades after. Unfortunately, this new piece of legislation will not help many of these women who are accusing the comedian of rape.
The actor is currently facing a criminal case in Pennsylvania, as well as a civil suit in California from a woman who claims he molested her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974 when she was only 15-years-old.
According to Senator Connie Leyva:
But not all his jokes during the show landed…
One particularly awkward moment happened when the award show announcer introduced the controversial comedian Bill Cosby as the next presenter.
The crowd seemed like they had no idea what to think of the surprise guest (who wasn't really there, thank goodness), who has been largely out of the public eye due to his pending rape charges.
This is so crazy.
Well now, RadarOnline.com is promising to unveil the "superstar sexual predator" who also happens to be "one of the most recognizable faces in the industry."
According to the site, "dozens of sources" close to the late Haim have come forward about the pedophile who raped the teen prodigy when he was a young actor. As you're probably aware, The Lost Boys star died back in 2010 after a drug overdose at the age of 38 — what many say was a result of the longtime abuse.
The outlet reports of the alleged A-lister:
A gallery of the sculpture that features life like versions of 12 celebrities — including Yeezy, Kim Kardashian West, Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, and Donald Trump — will reportedly be going on tour to be displayed in multiple cities.
But according to experts at the Blum & Poe gallery in Los Angeles, where the exhibit was displayed the day before the rapper's Saint Pablo tour, the full piece can be sold for up to an estimated $4 million!
The number was floated around among those who attended the private exhibition, which would secure the buyer with naked doppelgangers of the previously named celebs, along with George W. Bush, Rihanna, Anna Wintour, Bill Cosby, Chris Brown, Ray J, and Caitlyn Jenner — and the bedspread they're all sprawled out on.
The Famous subjects are so lifelike, their chests rise and fall as if they're breathing! El Lay artist Aaron Axelrod told The New York Times:
A$AP Rocky knows how to spark up some controversy, doesn't he?
On Wednesday, the F*cking Problems artist stopped by Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club for an interview and opened up about his beliefs on the Black Lives Matter movement and the sexual assault charges against Bill Cosby. Unlike Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams, the 27-year-old didn't drop any woke words of wisdom and decided to throw shade at BLM and give his support to the scandalized comedian.
Huh. Still, A$AP's interview started off decently enough as the up-and-comer explained he hoped his words could inspire peace. He shared:
