While Bill Cosby continues to serve his prison sentence, he took to Twitter to share a message on Father's Day - and people are slamming him as "creepy" and begging him to "go away" after seeing what he wrote. "After slavery was over, America kept breaking up the black man's family and that's some very bad history to teach", Cosby says in the one-minute long-clip that originally aired during a CBS black history month special. It's America's Dad... I know it's late, but to all of the Dads... "So let's make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our goal - strengthening our families and communities".
The post was also shared to Cosby's official Twitter account, where it sparked even more discussion.
Cosby, who is now legally blind, is serving time at SCI Phoenix in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
"Hey, hey, hey...it's America's Dad", Bill Cosby wrote on June 16.
The post came minutes after O.J. Simpson fired off a tweet of his own, which included a video about him sleeping with Kris Kardashian - and concluded with a "Happy Father's Day!" wish. "Asshole", tweeted illustrator Colleen Doran.
Cosby's spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, confirmed to USA Today that the message was from Cosby himself in support of a group called Man Up.
Reflecting on both stars' messages, a third user joked: "Father's day is cancelled". He was convicted in 2018 of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home in 2004.
Cosby, who at one point was one the U.S.' most recognizable TV personalities, is now serving a three to 10 year sentence in Pennsylvania.
Dozens of women have accused him of sexual assault or misconduct over a 50-year span, including five who testified at his retrial last year. "That advantage is to be better fathers and productive citizens", he added.
