Don’t count comedian Faizon Love among those who back the decision reached against Bill Cosby. A jury on Thursday found America’s Dad guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand and Love says it is no different than what happened with Emmett Till.
Love, who has long been a defender of Cosby amid his rape allegations, tweeted Thursday, April 26 that America has now made the once-beloved comedian the face of rape.
“Well America you finally got what you wanted A Black Face for Rape this is truly a f—ed up day…. @BillCosby you should of [sic] ran for president,” Love tweeted. “Do you know the difference between Emmett Till case and @BillCosby case, not one got damn thing.”
In 1955, Till was kidnapped, tortured, beaten and lynched in Money, Miss., for allegedly making advances on a white woman. Carolyn Bryant, who claimed to be the victim, later admitted she lied about the encounter with the 14-year-old.
Continuing on about Black men accused of sexual abuse, Faizon tweeted that when Michael Jackson was found not guilty of child molestation in 2005, “they killed him…”
And while Love feels strongly that Cosby was wrongly convicted, others don’t feel the same.
“I choose to believe you are trolling because I don’t want to believe there is a single person alive who is this f—ing stupid,” one Twitter user said.
“I think this second trial was not fair to Bill Cosby and many share that opinion,” said someone else.”But you way out of pocket with [this] one!”
“Nah, you’re wild … Stop!” another posted.
“Straight Bull💩💩” someone else responded.
