Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby may not have been able to physically celebrate his wife Camille’s 75th birthday, but that didn’t stop him from sending her a shout out.
Someone managing Cosby’s social media accounts posted a heartfelt tribute that ignited jokes all over Twitter.
Featuring a collage of pictures of Bill and Camille Cosby through the years, the birthday post said, “Happy 75th Birthday to my beautiful bride, Camille. Dear, you’re a wonderful mother, loving wife, but most importantly, you’re the strength of this family. Please celebrate your day!"

Cosby began his three to 10 year prison sentence in September 2018 for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman inside of his Pennsylvania mansion. He spent the first four months of his incarceration in special housing, but was moved to general population last month.
The comedian's spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, told a WCAU reporter that Cosby informed him that "despite the circumstances," prison had turned out to be "an amazing experience."
Reportedly, Camille has not yet visited him in prison.
