I do not claim to understand Bill Cosby defenders. Dozens of women come out with the same story and people want to believe it's some wild conspiracy.
Do they think they're are part of a coven that meets in the woods to randomly pick a man to accuse of rape? There are levels of delusion that cannot be reasoned with.
But Amy said something in her mock defense in "the Court of Public Opinion" that put those defenders into perspective for me: "This is about not punishing ourselves for loving great comedy." These deniers can't separate their love of, both Bill Cosby's public personality and the character he plays, from the reality of who he really is. Then again, is it that they "can't" or they don't want to?
This little rant to the "jury" sums it up even more:
|Amy Schumer defends Bill Cosby|
They're afraid they won't be able to enjoy something they always have before if they also acknowledge he is a serial rapist. She sums it up perfectly in this sketch.
Amy is on fire lately!
