Netflix Postpones Release of “Bill Cosby 77”
Netflix has apparently felt enough of the heat for Bill Cosby’s increasing number of rapist allegations. They had scheduled the release of his latest comedy special “Bill Cosby 77” for Nov. 28th, but have indefinitely postponed releasing it in light of more allegations, including one from model Janice Dickinson, just in the past few days.
Netflix hasn’t permanently nixed the special and NBC hasn’t cancelled their project with Cosby, but it would come as no surprise if both those things happened soon.
While Cosby has still maintained silence on all of this, save for some dismissive statements from his lawyers, many people feelings are probably in line with this tweet from Patton Oswalt:
You were the first reason I wanted to do comedy. I’ll always marvel at your genius onstage. But here’s where we say goodbye, Bill Cosby.
