Awkward or funny? Bill Cosby recently made a “rape” joke and it was surprisingly received well, with the exception of one person…
A woman in the audience was getting up to grab a drink when Cosby asked her where she was going. She offered him a drink and he said “You have to be careful about drinking around me.”
The video shows the aftermath of the joke, when Cosby was reportedly heckled by members of the audience. Hecklers were ejected from the show after yelling “We don’t love you Bill!” As one of the hecklers was being removed from the show he yelled, “You are a rapist. I’m being ejected because you are a rapist.” Cosby talked the hecklers down and the audience cheered for him to continue the show.
Members of the press documented the show last night:
Cosby received a standing ovation at the end of the show. The rest of the show was relatively uneventful as most of the protesting remained outside of the show.
Cosby’s released a statement through his PR firm about the show:
“One outburst but over 2600 loyal, patient and courageous fans enjoyed the most wonderful medicine that exist for human-kind. Laughter. I thank you, the theater staff (Budweiser Gardens), the event organizers and the London, ON Community for your continued honor and support. I’m Far From Finished.”
