WTF?! Bill Cosby Plans to Teach People How to Avoid Sexual Assault Charges

For 120 days, Bill Cosby is off the hook for his sexual assault case due to a mistrial. With his schedule cleared for now, he could be doing a lot of things. For example, he could use his free time to reflect on his past, make some apologies, spend time with his family, etc.

However, he has decided to skip all of that and go right into pissing us all off.

No, it isn’t enough for the former comedian to sit back and lay low after being accused of sexually assaulting 60 women, admitting to cheating on his wife and recently going to trial for a 2004 incident. Less than a week after the trial, we found out that he’s planning to educate young people about sexual assault at seminars in July.

Angry yet? Just wait until you hear what he really wants to talk to them about.

Cosby’s spokespeople, Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson, gave the impression that the 79-year-old wants to teach young people and married men how to avoid sexual assault accusations. Yes, AVOID.

On a local news show in Alabama, Wyatt and Benson defended Cosby’s honour.

“This is bigger than Bill Cosby,” said Wyatt. “This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing. And it also affects married men.”

Benson agreed with the importance of young people being informed. She said the meetings, which will be held at town halls for free (Oh, joy!), would also include information about the changing laws. This is to avoid people getting into legal trouble for a simple “brush against the shoulder.” She continued, “Because anything at this point can be considered sexual assault and it is a good thing to be educated about the laws.”

So, Wyatt and Benson, are you implying that the 60 women who came forward were all just simply brushed on their shoulders? Even the ones who claim they were drugged and raped? I mean, maybe it’s just me. Maybe it’s easy to confuse the two and I’m living in an unusual world where an accidental touch is akin to being completely violated. It sort of seems like Cosby gave his spokespeople their own personal lessons before sending them out to Alabama to speak on his behalf.

Wyatt also added, “We just ask that our supporters be respectful and not engage or incite anything…He has been consistent that people respect each other. He has used his entire career to humanize all age groups, races, genders and religious groups and he’ll continue to do that as he moves on with his life.”

What a gem. A role model. An American icon even. SMH.

From the sounds of it, Bill Cosby is using his time and influences to protect others just like him. He doesn’t seem to be planning on telling young people and athletes to refrain from touching someone in a way they don’t want to be touched but rather not to get caught. And this is what’s wrong with the world.
