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
