And meme him Twitter did, though not in the innocuous way Cosby’s social media team for some reason expected. In fact, very few people had anything nice to say about the guy. Most focused on the fact that Cosby was accused in a civil lawsuit of drugging and sexually assaulting 13 women—the suit was settled in 2006—a matter that came to light again recently following comments by fellow comedian Hannibal Buress.
Consider yourself warned: These tweets are brutal.

When you can’t drag a man into court, trial by Twitter has got to be the next best thing.
