He also told this story and a story about Cosby bouncing his mom on his knee.
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.
Look I’m not going to say that Cosby telling Kenan Thompson that he’ll need two dicks to fuck all his groupies or Cosby bouncing Kenan’s mom on his knee means Bill Cosby is a rapist, you can’t do that. But I am 100% on board with Kenan Thompson when he says those are little “indicators”. Maybe it’s revisionist history and selective memory but it is absolutely true that creeps will always leave a creep trail along the way. It’s like Jared Fogle having a porn rental service out of his dorm room at Indiana, or eating Subway for breakfast lunch and dinner. The fact that no one was like hey wait a minute, this is fucking weird means we all failed. Just like the time Bill Cosby bounced a grown woman on his lap and said it was a like a kiddie riding a horse, not stopping that was a failure. You can’t necessarily jump from a weird occurrence to full blown rape but you can definitely be like “Hey Bill, cool it man, we know you’re up to some shit” and hope he just stops raping people. That’s really what it boils down to, you can’t let creepy people do creepy things unchecked, that’s how pedophiles and rapists are born, gotta nip that shit in the bud early.
