Bill Cosby Reportedly Already Has A Prison Nickname, And It May Surprise You

That was fast.

Bill Cosby hasn't even been behind bars for a week and he's already reportedly been given a nickname by his fellow inmates.

According to Radar Online, a source close to the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections revealed to them that the other prisoners "are excited that Cosby is there." In fact, they have already begun showing the disgraced comic some love by giving him a new moniker.

"They're calling him the 'OG' — lingo for 'original gangster,'" the source told the site.

As previously reported, shortly after Judge Steven O'Neill sentenced the convicted sex offender to three to 10 years in prison for drugging and raping Andrea Constand, he was taken away to the State Correctional Institution Phoenix after making a stop at the Montgmery County Jail.

"We are taking all the necessary precautions to ensure Mr. Cosby's safety and general welfare in our institution," Corrections Secretary John Wetzel said. "The long-term goal is for him to be placed in the general population to receive the programming required during his incarceration."
