It was wrong to make jokes about Bill Cosby at the Golden Globes. Making jokes about such a sensitive subject, at a time when abuse of women is prevalent in our society, sets back the cause of protecting women who live in silent fear every day of being attacked or taken advantage of by men of power.
I believe that the serious subject matter of the accusations brought against Bill Cosby should not be fodder for comedians, especially not on a program like the Golden Globes. Many women have come forward with accusations and it is important to consider how they will be affected by their situation being made into a national joke.
Anyone who believes these accusations are true is a moron.
These women are just looking for attention. These women were nobodies until these accusations, and it seems that every day a different nobody is claiming she too was a victim of Bill Cosby.
There is not one shred of evidence to prove any of this is true and I think it's a good thing to make jokes about a laughable subject.
In regards to serious allegations made against Mr. Cosby recently, it is not wrong to make light of the situation in a public forum such as the Golden Globes. It is the function of art to comment on current affairs. In a venue that specifically caters to recognizing artists for their work in the area of film and film production, comedic side notes are always expected. Comedy has a way of easing uncomfortable subject matter. While we have no definitive answer as to whether the accusations are true as they continue to be investigated, a joke gives us an opportunity to step away for a minute and relax. It does not take away from the seriousness of the actual situation, but allows us to break our concentration if only for a moment
Bill Cosby needs to be outed for the criminal that he is. Many people is the entertainment business knew about him but said nothing. This allowed him to victimize people without ever being held accountable for his crimes. Ridiculing him is the very least that Hollywood can do after supporting him for so many years.
