Being black, blind, and elderly doesn’t work anymore when attempting to win the public sympathy of others. Not even when you’re Bill Cosby. He’s gone from America’s favorite dad to one of Me Too’s more ethnic rapists. That’s not even the worst part. The biggest offender here is the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The virtue signaling going on over there could make those with an iron stomach lose their lunch. They’ve just kicked out both Bill and Roman Polanski due to “newly adopted standards of conduct.” Unfortunately for forced sex enthusiasts the rules are retroactive. Women can basically cast their vote and whoever receives the most complaints will be the Academy’s focus of care. Because apparently pedophilia and probing women with your pudding pop wasn’t against the rules until this past Thursday. Way to stifle creativity AMPAS. The number of men not accused in Hollywood can be counted on one hand. And some woman, somewhere, from years ago is currently misremembering being raped by them as I write this.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which administers the Oscars, has expelled comedian Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski, the organization announced in a statement Thursday. Polanski, who won an Oscar for Best Director for the 2002 movie “The Pianist,” will keep his award, an Academy spokesperson told HuffPost.
The Academy said its board of governors voted on Tuesday to expel the two men, citing its newly adopted standards of conduct, developed in response to the scores of sexual misconduct allegations against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. “The Board continues to encourage ethical standards that require members to uphold the Academy’s values of respect for human dignity,”
It’s weird Bill gets booted while Roman Polanski gets to keep his Oscar. I’m guessing the only reason they’re letting him keep it is because the country Roman’s currently in probably requires him to write down a return address. And a return address for him probably means an extradition. So the chances of getting that Oscar back from Polanski is about as good as someone returning an overdue Blockbuster VHS tape that they actually remembered to kindly rewind in 2018. Either way it was easier to just dog pile on the black guy as per usual. Quaaludes and barely consensual sex was the only lifestyle most entertainers partook in from his time era. Bill just got caught. Now he's the poster boy for J-E-L-L-O and date rape. Seems about right.
