“Bill Cosby has the f–king smuggest old black man public persona that I hate,” Buress said. “‘Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the ’80s. I can talk down to you, because I had a successful sitcom.’ Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple notches. I don’t curse on stage. But yeah, you’re a rapist.”
Buress’ statement stems from a 2006 case with Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who said Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Philadelphia-area mansion in 2004. Constand’s lawyers found 13 witnesses with similar claims of sexual assault, drugging and or abuse by the TV star, though the statute of limitations on all their charges had expired. Cosby ended up settling with Constand under undisclosed terms.
