On his second episode of The Nightly Show back in January, Larry Wilmore showed that he wasn’t screwing around by going after Bill Cosby for the nearly three dozen rape accusations against him. Wilmore even said that “that fucker did it” as far as the court of public opinion was concerned.
Six months to the day after that episode aired (and in light of newly released depositions from a 2005 court case), Wilmore wasn’t backing down.
He and his audience grew disgusted with each new revelation in the deposition, to the point where everyone needed a puppy break. But then Wilmore discussed two separate instances in which Cosby referenced his alleged rapes in his earlier work: A 1969 comedy routine about the “Spanish fly” and a Cosby Show episode where Cosby said that whoever had his barbecue sauce would become “huggy-buggy.” Later, his daughter on the show was shown to hardly be able to keep her eyes open. Both incidents were disturbing to watch with the benefit of hindsight.
“This is how horrible of a human being that motherfucker is. This is why I call him a motherfucker all the time, OK?” Wilmore said. “He believes that drugging and raping women deserves to be laughed at. He put it in a comedy act and he put it on his TV show. He finds what he did to be funny. Five words: you can go fuck yourself.”
