Bill Cosby is currently serving three to 10 years in prison for a conviction of sexual assault against several women. He tweeted his appreciation to Snoop Dogg for the rapper defending him and other African American men who were also either accused of sexual assault or convicted of it.
Snoop Dogg was in a rage on Twitter on Thursday when he posted a bunch of angry tweets after watching the interview on CBS This Morning of WNBA star Leslie King by Gayle King.
King asked the WNBA star, Lisa Leslie, about the sexual assault charges she once had against legendary NBA star, Kobe Bryant. Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven other people who were also on the helicopter all died last month from the helicopter crash.
Snoop Dogg has posted a lot about Bryant since his death in January. He posted a video criticizing Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey saying, “Why y’all attacking us? We your people. You ain’t coming after fucking Harvey Weinstein asking him dumbass questions.”
He continued, saying, “How dare you try and tarnish my motherfucking homeboy’s reputation…. Respect the family and back off, bitch, before we come get you.”
In a few different Instagram posts, he directed his anger at several other women who had also accused black men of sexual assault. He says these women are being too easy on white men like Harvey Weinstein for being accused of the same thing.
Harvey Weinstein is on trial currently for many different sexual assault accusations.
He posted an image of Winfrey and Weinstein on Instagram with the accusation of her supporting him while attacking Michael Jackson. Winfrey has been open about her support for the HBO documentary series, Leaving Neverland, which talked about the allegations that were brought up against Jackson of child sexual abuse.
Snoop Dogg is not the only one who has attacked Winfrey and accused her of only attacking black men for sexual assault. 50 Cent and others have also called her out for only attacking black men.
Snoop Dogg ended his Instagram post with the words, “Free Bill Cosby.”
Cosby, or whoever is currently in control of his Twitter account, posting for him, tweeted his appreciation many hours later saying, “so sad and disappointing that successful Black Women are being used to tarnish the image and legacy of successful Black Men even in death. Thank you, thank you and thank you.” These were addressed to Snoop Dogg and Cosby included the hashtags, #StopTearingDownBlackMen, and #EnoughisEnough.
King defended herself against the network on Thursday about her interview with Lisa Leslie.
King argued that the TV Network, CBS had used the worst part of her interview with Leslie out of the long discussion they had about Kobe Bryant’s legacy and showed it out of context.
King said, Yes, we talked about that court case because that court case has also come up. And I wanted to get Lisa’s take on it as a friend who knew him well. “
Cosby also tweeted that these women who were accusing him and the others of sexual assault were only looking for “fame, ratings, and/or money” when trying to tear him and other black men down.
Many twitter users were criticizing Snoop Dogg for defending people such as Bill Cosby while also defending Kobe Bryant wasn’t right or accomplishing his real purpose.
