Akon defends Bill Cosby: “You don’t really know if he did it”
Sixty separate women with absolutely nothing to gain have accused Bill Cosby of raping them, in detailed and troublingly-similar accounts spanning decades, yet Akon isn’t convinced.
“You don’t really know if he did it or he didn’t do it,” Akon told TMZ. “Yeah, but it’s been a lot of people convicted that’s been innocent. In situations like this you just…I don’t know.”
Cosby faces up to thirty years behind bars — in other words the rest of his sorry little life — but still, Akon liked watching Bill Cosby explain to Theo how expensive having a girlfriend and a car is, because that is some wholesome TV fun. That sweatered-man can’t possibly be a horrific rapist, yeah?
If only there were signs…
“I’ve already been painted a picture of Bill Cosby,” Akon, who sang ‘Smack That’ continued. “He’s a hero to me from the pictures that’s been painted. It’s hard to flip that around because I grew up as a child looking up to this man.
“I mean at this point, Bill Cosby’s life has been well-lived. It’s horrible to kind of think about it how someone could have that much impact in the world and have their legacy just be crashed, you know.”
How horrible. Some idiots say the darnedest things.
