Bill Cosby's Late Show Appearance Canceled Because Of The Rape Allegations

http://www.cinemablend.com/televisi...-Canceled-Because-Rape-Allegations-68416.html

It has not been a good week for America’s Dad, Bill Cosby. The iconic comedian's upcoming appearance The Late Show with David Letterman slated for Tuesday November 19th has been canceled. He has been replaced by former talk show host Regis Philbin, a standby for Letterman many times before when a guest bows out of a Letterman spot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it is unclear as to whether Cosby or Letterman’s people canceled the appearance but a rep for The Late Show declined to comment. Cosby also recently bowed out of a scheduled appearance on The Queen Latifah Show, so it's evident these accusations are causing enough of a stir to impact the comedian's work. This all stems amidst the rape allegations that surfaced after stand-up comic Hannibal Buress brought them to the forefront in a recent performance.

Since Buress' set, the allegations of Cosby's alleged sexual misconduct have been brought back into the forefront. It is no secret that in 2006, the comedian settled out of court with a woman he allegedly sexually assaulted. However, according to official court documents, attorneys have plans to bring forward 13 other women with similar complaints. Adding fuel to the fire was an op-ed piece in the Washington Post by an alleged former victim of the comedian. In addition to the Buress set that brought the allegations back into the spotlight, apparently a new Cosby biography went out of their way to omit the rape allegations in the new tome.

To compound the explosive issue that one of America’s most beloved entertainers could be a multiple sex offender, Cosby’s social media team had a huge backfire earlier this week. The team had tasked users that follow Cosby on Twitter to create memes about the comic. Seems innocent enough except users used the platform to create memes about The Cos’ drugging and sexually assaulting multiple women. The tweet and the meme generator has been deleted as of Monday night.

Bill Cosby Twitter campaign completely backfires after rape accusations

http://rt.com/usa/205367-bill-cosby-rape-meme-twitter/

Here’s a lesson that will forever be remembered now: If someone has had multiple rape accusations leveled against them over the course of a decade, perhaps they should think twice before asking the internet to form a meme around their personality.

Actor Bill Cosby learned that lesson the hard way this week, when he posted a picture of himself on Twitter and asked users to “meme” him.

Of course, the entire thing backfired spectacularly.

Sort of ironic that this has been a known fact for a very long time but it was only recently brought into the semi public attention by a comedian.

Well, Bill Cosby is certainly more prevalent right now, he's even got a new show coming out. So it makes twisted sense--if he was still out of the limelight, we'd probably never hear about this.

I think he's offended some of the hardcore elements with his "pull yourself up and stop blaming others" comments and the backlash has brought his history into the spotlight. In the back of my mind I was aware of an allegation or two but until that comedian mentioned it I had no idea there were so many complaints. I don't know that he's guilty but there's so much smoke it's hard to believe he's innocent.
