Hey, Hey, Hey...It’s America’s Dad...I know it’s late, but to all of the Dads... It’s an honor to be called a Father, so let’s make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our purpose — strengthening our families and… https://t.co/TPEFC9iTZe

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt told USA Today that Cosby wanted to post the message in support a group called Man Up.

“Mr. Cosby’s (message) consisted of telling these men who have been incarcerated for many years, but are up for parole soon ... to ... take the word ‘disadvantage’ and remove the ‘dis,’ and start focusing on the advantage. That advantage is to be better fathers and productive citizens,” Wyatt said.

1. To avoid Trump news, I've found several channels that have old TV shows

And there is one that has a couple of hours of The Cosby Show daily. I did a double take, had no idea that anyone was still airing it!

2. It is hard to separate the celebrity from the rapist. I've enjoyed Cosby so much ...

and then we get the truth. I can't watch or listen to his stuff anymore, like you, it kinda takes my breath away his shows are being rerun anywhere.

Kevin Spacey is the same for me: a favorite actor who's sexual assaults make watching some of my favorite movies impossible.

4. I agree, Bill Cosby was "America's Dad," he was the funny guy who sold Jello

I was very surprised to see that his show was actually shown anywhere now. But I just checked and it's still on - 4 in a row, from 6-8pm weeknights. As for Kevin Spacey, that's another shocker. I used to work with CBS, wrote up the network TV listings for the newspapers, and one of my favorite L.A. contacts was personal friends with him - nice guy with a wife and 2 kids that he was very proud of - and I knew he was rooting for his friend's success. So when the news broke, he had to be pretty shocked. I felt the same way about Louis C.K., thought he was very funny. But I agree, what we know now is pretty hard to overlook even when watching their old performances.

8. LouisCK is one that shocks me and with his inability to deal with it doubly so ...

I don't think his strategy of pop up comedy sets has been working well for him, particularly with his making some jibes about his ... actions ... assaults. Crimes. Its way beyond too soon.
