The Game Compares The Case Of Bill Cosby To The Killings Of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown & Tamir Rice

The charging of Bill Cosby with felony sexual assault charges continues to generate opinions from all corners of the Internet. The previously celebrated comedian and actor now faces up to ten years in jail, and former fans and celebrities alike have taken to social media to give their two cents on the matter. Next up to speak their piece? The Game. Posting a series of photos to his Instagram page that read “Black Lives Splatter,” the Compton rapper wrote a lengthy caption about the case against Cosby.

Comparing the charging of Cosby to the non-indictment of the killers of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Keith Childress and Sean Bell, The Game lamented the justice system’s knack for letting officers who have killed young black men go free. Taking the stance that Cosby has been charged based on hearsay while officers have not been charged for crimes committed on camera, the rapper questioned why his alleged victims waited to share their stories. While calling rape a “huge deal,” The Game also shamed social media users for sharing Cosby memes:

Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is FREE. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is FREE. Timothy Loehman, who killed Tamir Rice seconds after arriving on the scene.. on camera, is FREE. Officers who shot Keith Childress 19 times for holding a cellphone they thought was a gun, are FREE. Officers who arrested Sandra Bland & detained her until her mysterious death, are FREE. All of the officers who shot 50 rounds into Sean Bell's car, on his wedding day, killing him, are FREE ! I could go on all day, but you get the point... & again, y'all put Dr. Huxtable in jail off of word of mouth. I'm not here to say these women are liars or not because RAPE is a huge deal & I don't wish that on any woman of any color... But whether or not he actually did anything, we won't know because of the lack of evidence or proof & the duration from the point of the alleged assault to now.... Why did it take these women over 10 years to bring this to the light ? & while we out here laughing & making memes of a 70+ year old man who practically raised us all on tv as children....

The Game’s opinion on the Bill Cosby case rings similar to that of his fellow rapper Waka Flocka, who took to Twitter to state that he believes the comedian is being “framed.” Calling the entire case an “organized lie,” Waka concluded that the conspiracy was a ploy to bring down another “famous minority.” Actress Lark Voorhies on the other hand, took the stance that “Anyone who defends this man is defending the devil himself,” urging her followers to separate Cosby’s beloved characters from the man himself.

Peep The Game’s full commentary on Bill Cosby below:

I think it's crazy that Bill Cosby has a mugshot for alleged assaults 11 years ago with no physical evidence or proof besides these womens accounts of what he did to them an entire decade later.... But Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is FREE. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is FREE. Timothy Loehman, who killed Tamir Rice seconds after arriving on the scene.. on camera, is FREE. Officers who shot Keith Childress 19 times for holding a cellphone they thought was a gun, are FREE. Officers who arrested Sandra Bland & detained her until her mysterious death, are FREE. All of the officers who shot 50 rounds into Sean Bell's car, on his wedding day, killing him, are FREE ! I could go on all day, but you get the point... & again, y'all put Dr. Huxtable in jail off of word of mouth. I'm not here to say these women are liars or not because RAPE is a huge deal & I don't wish that on any woman of any color... But whether or not he actually did anything, we won't know because of the lack of evidence or proof & the duration from the point of the alleged assault to now.... Why did it take these women over 10 years to bring this to the light ? & while we out here laughing & making memes of a 70+ year old man who practically raised us all on tv as children....in other news.... The people we pay taxes to keep employed are still taking the lives of men, women & even children, ON VIDEO, are out here enjoying the New Year FREE & I don't see no memes of that shit.... & who am I except a man with an opinion....... So I'm not here to ask anyone to do anything other than pay attention & govern yourself accordingly - The Game #BlackLivesSplatter

Cardi B Snaps At 'The Shade Room' For Publicizing Negativity: 'It’s Trash'

Cardi B is tired of The Shade Room, and she let us know that fact by posting videos bashing them on social media.

The rapper took to Instagram to discuss her issues with the social media page posting negative things about the people she is associated with, including her husband Offset. The Migos member was reportedly mentioned on The Shade Room regarding his recent felony gun possession charges.

“Everybody that they know that I’m cool with, they always try to get them set up for people to talk sh*t,” she said. "Offset donated 25K to the Ellen foundation for the kids in Africa. Did The Shade Room post it? No… are they posting any positive sh*t and investment talk that he’s been talking about in his interviews? No. But they sure post the way he had drama with his baby mom. They sure posting about his court cases, right?"

She continues by stating that she understands that blogs will be blogs, and she doesn’t want them to only post the positive aspects of celebrities’ lives. However, Cardi says that there is a “hate campaign” and bias against Quality Control and those associated with her via TSR, and she wants it to end.

“That sh*t is getting wack,” she continues. “It’s trash. How do people want us to change? For what? Why change? Y’all don’t post the change, y’all don’t post the good, y’all don’t post the accomplishments. Y’all post the f**k sh*t. So, what the f**k?”

She concludes by stating that black blogs capitalize on black drama and negativity occurring in the community, which causes white publications to follow suit.

“Stop claiming that y’all for the people, when y’all fuel drama in between these artists,” she states.

R. Kelly Accuser Wins Civil Case Against Singer By Default Judgment

R. Kelly was a no-show in court today (April 24), after he was sent a summons to appear. Due to the singer's absence, the woman accusing him of sexual abuse in a civil case won by a default judgment. The judge presiding over the case determined that Kelly and his legal team ignored the woman's civil suit.

Per The Chicago Tribune, a woman who accused Kelly of sexually abusing her in the '90s filed a suit in February alleging that the musician had an inappropriate sexual relationship with her when she was 16 years old. She is now 36, and is identified in court documents at H.W.

Kelly was reportedly served the summons last month during his brief stint in a Cook County jail cell for missed child support payments. However, the woman's attorneys claim that he never filed an appearance in the lawsuit.

"Judge Moira Johnson granted the attorneys’ request Tuesday to enter a judgment against Kelly," the Tribune reports. "That could still be reversed if Kelly got an attorney involved in the suit. If that doesn’t happen, Kelly could be ordered to pay damages as soon as next month when the alleged victim is expected to testify about her allegations against the singer."

During H.W.'s May 8 court appearance, she will reportedly discuss her alleged relationship and encounters with Kelly in detail.

Kelly faces a maximum of up to 70 years behind bars. He is charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four separate victims, three of whom were underage during the time of their alleged encounters.
