Kanye West Tweets “BILL COSBY INNOCENT”, The Internet Responds In Sassy GIFs

Kanye West has tweeted: “BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!” There it is, look, just down there there. Jesus Christ. Fuck’s sake, Kanye. We think you’re great and we always defend you. We never once signed a petition about you. And now this?

Cosby, who found massive fame and fortune through his sitcom The Cosby Show, which ran from 1984 to 1992, is accused of historical sex crimes dating back as far as the mid-1960s. 37 women have accused him of these crimes. 35 of the women were interviewed by New York magazine last summer. The piece explained: “All 35 were interviewed separately, and yet their stories have remarkable similarities, in everything from their descriptions of the incidents to the way they felt in the aftermath.”

Ah, but that doesn’t appear to be enough for Kanye, who incidentally has a new album out tomorrow. It’s been a strange few weeks online for the rapper, who has beefed with Wiz Khalifa and felt compelled to assure his 18.5 million Twitter followers that, no, actually, he doesn’t enjoy a finger up his bum, thank you very much. He’s also changed the name of said album no less than three times now, most recently revealing its initials will be TLOP. Best guess: Total Lack Of Perspective.

Anyway, Twitter users soon called Kanye out on his bullshit, and their indignation largely took the form of sassy GIFs. The first one pretty much sums our initial feelings. We want to love you, Kanye. Why would you do this to us?

GIF BREAK: Someone also knocked up some fake Kanye tweets, the first of which invoked the name of Steven Avery, the alleged killer at the heart of the hit Netflix true crime documentary Making A Murderer. The show is currently possibly the only thing the internet likes more than taking the piss out of Kanye.

And while we’re on Steven Avery, what about that other great divisive figure of our times?

All in all, Kanye’s behaviour – this idiocy, from a man who is undeniably one of the greatest artistic talents of our times – left us feeling like:
