Bill Cosby's Alleged Victims Protest Museum's Plan To Honor The TV Star! See What Both Sides Have To Say About His 'Contributions'!
This isn't good…
The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture is coming under attack this week after it revealed its plan to exhibit several objects related to controversial comedian Bill Cosby when it opens in September.
The museum, which will feature 11 different exhibits and nearly 3,000 total items and artifacts, was quick to point out that only two of the items were related to Cosby — but that hasn't stemmed the tide of controversy!
The comedian, who has repeatedly been accused of sexual assault by now dozens of women over an alleged decades-long spree, is represented as part of the Taking The Stage exhibition, which features African-American comedians, actors, entertainers, and stars.
But because Cosby is even slightly there, controversy followed.
The museum was forced to release a statement about it (in part, below):
