Roseanne Barr entered the Bill Cosby conversation with a crude joke
The famously raunchy comedian may have stepped over the line with this one.
Comedian Roseanne Barr stepped into the Bill Cosby conversation with a now-deleted tweet containing a crude joke about Cosby, who is currently facing more than a dozen rape and assault allegations spanning multiple decades.
Early this morning, Barr tweeted a photo with the caption “tussle w bill cosby.” The photo was a close-up of her face, which was swollen and covered in blood. She then attached the photo to a tweet, adding, “U shoyld [sic] see that mfer.”
Barr later—of course—deleted the tweets, but she re-posted the picture on Twitter. She wasn’t in a tussle with Cosby, she explained; it was something a lot more innocent. Granted, the real story doesn’t make the photo any less gruesome—and it definitely makes getting a chemical peel less appealing.
In the past, Barr has said that she isn’t a fan of censorship when it comes to comedy, and that includes crude or potentially offensive humor.
Although Cosby has been kind to Barr in the past, she is firmly on the side of the accusers, crude jokes and all.
