If you aren’t aware, which would mean you are possibly living under rock, on Thursday, social media went into a storm after the former comedian began trending on Twitter. When you type in his name, users will see that it’s all because Snoop Dogg wants him free amid drama surrounding Gayle King’s interview with #LisaLeslie, in which the journalist questioned Leslie about #KobeBryant’s sexual assault trial from 20 years ago.
“Free Bill Cosby,” Snoop wrote in a series of social media posts that attacked, insulted, and called out King. Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault and was sentenced to three to ten years in prison back in September 2018. But on Thursday, he tweeted Snoop to thank him for his support. “When they brought me to my gated community and placed me inside of my penthouse, they didn’t win, nor did they silence me,” he said. The post included a photo of Cosby pointing at a picture of the rapper.
His post continued, “It’s so sad and disappointing that successful Black Women are being used to tarnish the image and legacy of successful Black Men, even in death. Are these people that in need of fame, ratings, and/or money? On behalf of myself, Camille and my family, thank you, thank you and thank you. My heartfelt prayers are with Kobe and his family, as well as with Michael Jackson and his family. May their legacies live on forever,” read Cosby’s caption.
