Michael Jai White Slams Bill Cosby and Dr. King for Cheating on Their Wives

The actor has harsh words for Black icons.

Michael Jai White isn't afraid to call it like he sees it. The actor took to Facebook to sound off on Bill Cosby and other Black icons for cheating on their wives. Among the others the Black Dynamite actor name-checked? Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr
"If he never drugged anybody he’s still the most self righteous, judgmental and biggest known serial adulterer we’ve ever known," White wrote of Cosby. "I’ve identified this for years as the one double standard that black men enjoyed over whites! Let Seinfeld be married and do that shit! Lol. Remember Hugh Grant was practically destroyed from one encounter with a hooker?"
He continues, "I’m a black man who’s disturbed by the fact that we can have infidelity in our lives and it NOT BE A BIG DEAL! It’s like society is saying being faithful is above black men and below whites. MLK, Jessie Jackson, Cosby… the list goes on. Cosby stopped being a hero to me as soon as I learned he was living a lie as a faithful man, period."
And that was only half of what he had to say. Read the full rant, below:

Whew! Well, one person who will be happy to hear all this is White's wife Gillian Waters. Sounds like you don't need to worry about your man, boo. Although, what is it they say about someone who protests too much...?
We kid, of course. MJW is obviously super-committed to whichever woman he's with. Check the receipts, below:
