no title

Seriously, Kanye West?

On Tuesday, Kanye took to Twitter to declare Bill Cosby INNOCENT. Obviously, the message caused a major uproar all over the internet.

Interestingly enough, the post comes two days before his Yeezy Season 3 show on Thursday. Publicity stunt, anyone?

Well, we guess everyone is entitled to his/her opinions… though we think the dozens of Cosby sexual assault accusers might disagree. Not to mention B.C. will be charged with sexual assault against Andrea Constand. So…

Either way, the internet went BANANAS over the post! Check out some of the best comebacks (below)!

Bill Cosby's Sexual Assault Charge Will NOT Be Thrown Out!

no title

Looks like Bill Cosby's nightmare is coming true!

On Wednesday, a judge decided not to dismiss Andrea Constand's sexual assault case against Bill. The decision is a big loss for the comedian who argued that the case be thrown out due to a deal he made with a former prosecutor.

Now a judge is saying Cosby's deal with the old district attorney is NOT valid and that he must face the music. The conclusion came after finding that the agreement was never writing and therefore it's not binding.

What's interesting is that even though the former prosecutor agreed not to pursue charges, he admitted to believing Andrea's claims. He simply didn't pursue the case due to "credibility issues" and since the 2004 allegations were too "old". Some suspect the legal maven was also influenced by Cosby.

As of now, B.C.'s lawyer has yet to respond to the decision.

So, are YOU surprised by the judge's decree?

Bill Cosby's Defense Fights To Have Charges Dropped — Argues 'A Promise Is A Promise' On Second Day Of Hearing

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolenceSexBill Cosby

Bill Cosby

As we told you yesterday, Bill Cosby's defense is arguing that the sexual assault charges in the Andrea Constand case should be dropped due to a deal made back in 2005 with the former DA Bruce Castor.

To catch you up, Castor made an agreement with Cosby over a decade ago that if Cosby testified freely, he would never be criminally prosecuted. The civil suit ended up being settled at that time.

Fast forward to now, there's a new DA in town (Kevin Steele) and Andrea is pressing criminal charges.

Cosby's argument — even though he technically did testify to drugging then having sex with Constand (but he says it was consensual) — is that he was promised to never be criminally charged, and that immunity should be binding upon Castor's successors.

The 78-year-old's attorney Chris Tayback told Montgomery County Judge Steve O'Neill during his closing arguments on Wednesday:

"A promise is a promise. The current district attorney is trying to get out from underneath that promise."

During Castor's nearly seven-hour testimony on the stand, he often said that during his time in office he had the "sovereign" power to offer immunity to whomever he wanted, without seeking approval.

Steele rebutted that if such deal was made it would have needed to be authorized by a judge, which is was not:

"There's no legal authority allowing a district attorney unilaterally to offer immunity to a defendant. We have found no authority to support this 'sovereign edict' theory that was presented by the witness yesterday."

As we noted on Tuesday, Castor also shared that he believed a settlement was the best option for Constand at the time of the initial suit:

"I believed Ms. Constand's account. What I think and what is provable in a courtroom are two different things. What I think is that Andrea Constand was inappropriately touched by Mr. Cosby. I'm analyzing back in 2005 what I can prove. All of those combined together in my mind created a situation where she had ruined her own credibility and would not be believed by a juror. That does not mean she was not telling the truth."

So basically, Castor is saying he believes Constand is telling the truth but he's also one of Cosby's key witnesses.

Sigh.

We will keep you updated as the hearing progresses.

Bill Cosby's First Hearing In Court — Demands Dismissal Of Criminal Sexual Assault Charges

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsLegal MattersBusted!Sad SadViolenceSexBill Cosby

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby was back in court in Norristown, Pennsylvania on Tuesday morning in hopes of persuading the judge to dismiss the Andrea Constand criminal sexual-assault charges.

This is the only criminal case against the comedian out of dozens of accusations.

The defense is arguing that the charges should be dropped because Cosby had a deal with former District Attorney Bruce Castor in 2005 that he wouldn't be prosecuted if he testified freely in Constand's case — which he did.

Back in 2004, Cosby admitted in the deposition that he had a series of affairs with young women with whom he gave quaaludes before sex. He testified that he gave Constand three pills before the January encounter over a decade ago at his home — but insisted it was consensual. Constand says she was drugged and assaulted.

On Tuesday, the 78-year-old's legal team brought key witness Castor to the stand where he testified about this "no-prosecution" deal and why he didn't pursue criminal charges against Cosby back in 2005.

The hearing came to a halt when Castor made several claims about Constand's original deposition.

He said:

"There were a number of inconsistencies among these statements that Ms. Constand had given that caused me concern because I knew inconsistencies on material points were things that would affect her credibility at trial … The length of time Ms. Constand took to go the police made forensic evidence impossible … and could never be resurrected."

Castor added that Constand's claims were "inconsistent with the behavior of a person who had been sexually assaulted" which caused credibility issues during the 2005 civil suit.

Because of that, Castor said he thought a settlement was the best option for the alleged victim:

"I thought at the time and still think that making Mr. Cosby pay money to Ms. Constand was the best I was going to be able to set the stage for, because a criminal prosecution, in my professional opinion, was not viable and never would be … I was hopeful I had made Ms. Constand a millionaire."

Wow.

When the hearing resumed, current District Attorney Kevin Steele argued against Cosby's motion to dismiss, saying that an immunity deal must be in writing — and since it wasn't, it shouldn't be considered in this case.

However, according to legal analysts, if Cosby can prove that he relied on Castor's promise to not be prosecuted, he stands a chance to have the charges dismissed, or at least have the deposition thrown out.

If that doesn't work, Cosby's team has sought to dismiss the charges based on other factors, like the long period of time between the alleged crime and the prosecution.

Oof.

What do U think of all this, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

This Sitcom Is Doing An Entire Episode About The Bill Cosby Accusations!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersViral: NewsBill Cosby

This is gonna be a must-see!

The Carmichael Show isn't the most well-known comedy on television, but that might all change after the NBC sitcom airs a rather controversial episode about Bill Cosby this Spring.

The comedy icon's fall from grace was one of the most unexpected scandals of 2015, but we're hoping that Jerrod Carmichael's take on the sexual assault claims is more than just funny; we want it to start a conversation.

Luckily, the plot for the episode sounds pretty spot on with how we felt upon hearing about Bill's accusers — after the accusations come out, a debate arises within the fictional family about whether or not to use their tickets for an upcoming Cosby show.

Jerrod spoke to Entertainment Weekly about tackling yet another scandalous topic, saying:
