Y'all have clearly had enough of the hate.

Published October 1, 2015

The media has wasted no opportunity to remind Bill Cosby that he has very few friends left following the sex abuse allegations that have been pouring in against him, but readers beg to differ.

After Kenan Thompson came forward with an anecdote about dating advise he recieved from Cosby, which we and many others dubbed creepy, many of y'all flooded Facebook defending the comedy icon, calling out the double standard and generally putting Kenan on blast.

"This advice isn't creepy or offensive. Its fact. Women throw themselves @ celebrities all the time. Sounds like solid advice to someone who isn't used to getting attention from women. Somebody is trying to get another 15 mins of fame," wrote leisha Wilson-Clark, while Jeffery Rhodes added, "Leave the man alone and stop the media circus already." 

Notty Da GreatMann has words for everyone jumping on the anti-Cosby bandwagon: "The number of Uncle Tom among African American is very high. Blacks exposing other blacks ... smh."
