Cosby's Social Media Fail Revives Assault Allegations
Bill Cosby's years-old sexual misconduct allegations were put in focus again after users subverted his attempts to engage with fans on social media.By Christian Bryant | November 11, 2014
Bill Cosby is at the center of a recent social media fail after an attempt to engage fans gave critics a high-profile way to revive years-old sexual assault allegations.
Cosby, or somebody running his Twitter account, tweeted a link Monday to a meme generator on the comedian's website. The generator allowed users to caption pictures of Cosby using the familiar white-block text font.
The result: a hashtag — #CosbyMeme — and lots of snarky posts about rape and sexual assault allegations against Cosby. The initial tweet has since been deleted and the meme generator is nowhere to be found on his website.
