As the nation worked through its mixed feelings on the situation comedian Faizon Love had a particular reaction and comparison to the verdict that sent the internet into a frenzy according to the Atlanta Black Star.
A longtime supporter of Bill Cosby, through all the rape allegations, Faizon tweeted that America turned Cosby into the poster child for rape.
Emmett Till was the 14-year-old boy from Chicago in 1955 that visited family in Mississippi. While there he was accused of looking at a white woman which got him beaten, tortured and then killed. The alleged victim Carolyn Bryant later admitted that she lied about Till.
Fazion went on to talk about Michael Jackson and how when he was found not guilty in the 2005 child molestation case it ruined him.
There’s a fair amount of people who believe that Bill Cosby was wrongfully convicted and a fair amount who believe the verdict was fair. However, people were not on the same page with Faizon comparing Cosby to Till.
Do you think Faizon went too far?
