Kanye West has ignited another inferno on social media that he cannot put out, once again, after he said this about disgraced comedian Bill Cosby:
“BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!!” the “Only One” rapper, 38, tweeted.
West offered no explanation for his tweet and continued posting on other topics, like LeBron James’ Nike shoes. His stance was a change of tune from his relatively new song “Facts” in which he quips, “Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? Did he forget names just like Steve Harvey?”
Social media was quick to pounce on the much-maligned Kanye:
“Kanye!! You can’t be for real. FIFTY WOMEN. With nothing to gain thanks to a statute of limitations ON RAPE. Oy,” Sarah Silverman tweeted.
Comedian Billy Eichner added, “Are we sure Kanye isn’t just a character from Zoolander?”
Scandal star Josh Malina, copied West’s tweet format, writing, “KANYE WEST DELUDED !!!!!!!!!!”
And feminist writer and activist Roxane Gay tweeted, “Stop Kanye. This is not a good look. @kanyewest.”
