Bill Cosby just can’t seem to make those pesky rape allegations go away. On Monday, Bill Cosby or more likely someone from Bill Cosby’s PR team posted a link on Twitter to Bill Cosby’s webpage with an invitation to turn pictures into memes. The tweet has since been deleted because as the Washington post reported on Monday, the Bill Cosby meme generator didn’t go quite as planned.
Whoever thought up the Bill Cosby meme generator thought the whole experience would go a little differently. As a matter of fact, examples of Bill Cosby memes they thought would be funny weren’t even close to the memes put together by Twitter.
Instead of making jokes about cake, cookies and pudding as suggested, Twitter took a darker turn. Many Bill Cosby memes were made about the many rape allegations that have plagued Cosby for years.
The website offered up still photos of Bill Cosby from his time on his classic “The Cosby Show.” The memes created were subject to review before they were posted by the Bill Cosby website but that didn’t stop Twitter users from posting their own memes to social media themselves.
The train wreck created by the Bill Cosby meme generator ended with memes like this one. A Twitter user with the handle @FilmCow wrote, “How’s this, did I do this right? RT @BillCosby: Go ahead. Meme me! #CosbyMeme.” The photo of Bill Cosby that he attached to the tweet read, “The star of classic 90’s movie ‘Ghost Dad’ also a serial rapist.” Another Bill Cosby meme was captioned, “She can’t say no if she’s unconscious.”
There are many, many more Bill Cosby memes created that referenced the Bill Cosby rape allegations. Matter of fact, it seems that more memes were created poking fun and making rape jokes than memes teasing about pudding pops or any other non-rape Bill Cosby joke.
It is unclear why anyone thought it would be a good idea to create a Bill Cosby meme generator with the most recent revival of Bill Cosby rape allegations. Cosby has been promoting his comedy tour and it has been upended by the allegations of multiple women over the years. It seems many had forgotten the accusations against Cosby until recently when another comedian, Hannibal Buress, began talking about it during his own comedy act.
In any case, Bill Cosby’s team has since pulled the meme generator. They also deleted the tweet that invited Twitter to “meme me.” As usual, when plagued by allegations of any sort, asking Twitter to chime in is never a good idea.
