Boosie BadAzz Thinks Racism Is Why Bill Cosby Is in Prison and Harvey Weinstein Isn’t
Boosie BadAzz has just delivered yet another controversial statement via social media.
On Tuesday (June 25), the Baton Rouge, La. rapper used his Instagram account to share his thoughts on what he feels is the contrast between the way Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein sexual assault accusations have been handled. He claims that the reason one of them is locked up and the other one isn't is racism.
"Ay check this out, y'all better wake up this racist ass muthafuckin’ world," Boosie states. "This armadillo lookin' bitch Harvey Weinstein been fuckin' people 100 days ago, and he can pay for all the shit he did, all the fuckin' rapes he done did, but Bill Cosby couldn't pay for his shit."
Boosie is referring to the case of Weinstein, who reportedly agreed to pay his accusers $44 million to settle civil lawsuits against him this past winter. However, Weinstein is still facing prison time as criminal charges in two sexual cases are also pending in New York, so there's a chance he could also be incarcerated. Cosby is in prison serving a three-to-10-year prison sentence after he was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault at a September 2018 retrial.
On Tuesday, the 82-year-old comedian filed an appeal to have his sexual assault convictions overturned. Earlier this year, Cosby's insurance company settled lawsuits filed by at least eight other women who had accused the veteran comedian of sexual misconduct and defamation.
At the end of the video, Boosie yells, "Free Bill Cosby," in support of the embattled comedian.
