Kenan Thompson Reportedly Called Bill Cosby A 'Monster'

Bill Cosby is yet again the talk of the town.

Bill Cosby is once again being talked about in a negative light.

This time around, it’s Kenan Thompson doing the disapproving finger wag. The Saturday Night Live cast member, who previously starred on Nickelodeon’s All That, recently spoke at the University of Pittsburgh where he reportedly professed he felt Cosby went from being a comedic inspiration to him to turning into a “monster.” The two both worked on the live-action Fat Albert movie, in which Thompson starred and Cosby produced.

A student of the school who attended the event posted some excerpts from Kenan’s speech on Reddit, according to The Huffington Post. This is how the unnamed pupil summarized Thompson's discourse:

So like, he started by talking about actually not getting the role of Fat Albert, but it then went into development hell for two years. After (or during, I can’t remember) his first season of SNL, he got the gig. He then talked about an odd remark Cosby made to him while filming, something like, “So Cosby pulled me aside and said that after the movie comes out, it’ll be so hard to keep the women off you, you’ll need two dicks.” And then he brought, like, his mom to see Cosby and he was creepy and bounced her on his lap and said something about horse riding like a kiddie.

Kenan got pretty real and just talked about what it feels like to have someone go from so commonly liked to being a piece of shit. He, like so many others, noticed kind of odd behavior awhile ago and just never put it all together. He said he wished someone had a recording or something so the guy can go to jail.

Thompson also mentioned his nostalgia for his stint at Nickelodeon, as well as smoking weed with Mike Tyson and Snoop Dogg, according to the student newspaper.

It’s pretty safe to say Kenan’s relationship with Cosby has gone extremely sour. – Richy Rosario

Ja Rule Gets Candid About Fyre Festival's 'Crazy Situation'

Ja Rule's role in the disastrous Fyre Festival has been riddled in speculation since the release of Hulu's and Netflix's respective documentaries detailing the disastrous "luxury" event. Speaking with TMZ, the "I'm Real" rapper reflected on his position in the festival's planning while motivating young moguls in the making.

"For any young visionary or entrepreneur just be hands-on with your stuff, if it's your baby and you want to create something amazing for the world to see, make sure you see it through, make sure you are the one overseeing everything, make sure you are the CEO of the company, even if you are not an experienced CEO," the 42-year-old said.

Ja continued by acknowledging the fault he played in the havoc that ensued during Fyre Fest and claiming he had no intention of hurting anyone.

"You know it is okay to make some mistakes along the way and that's what I learned the most, I am not an experienced CEO and I didn't want to make the mistakes but obviously, the CEO (Billy McFarland) of the company made the biggest mistake of them all. So I learned a lot from the situation and I am just looking forward to the next thing."

The rapper-entrepreneur recently teased the idea of a new and improved Fyre Festival saying: "It is the most iconic festival that never was. So I have plans to create the Iconic Music Fest, but you didn’t hear it from me."

TMZ initially stopped the Queens-bred rapper to speak about Andy Glyn, a member of the Fyre Festival staff, who was infamously asked to perform fellatio on the head of customs to get a shipment of Evian water cleared for the destination festival.
