Judd Apatow has been criticized for what some people believe is going too far in his attacks on Bill Cosby on Twitter. But “Girls” executive producer Jenni Konner has come to his defense.
This comes after “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris made comments accusing Apatow of borderline racism for what he feels is an unjustifiable obsession with Cosby.
It’s the battle of the television producers!
Konner was interviewed by HuffPost Live’s Ricky Camilleri about the new season of the hit HBO series Girls which premieres on Sunday when she commented on the Barris/Apatow dispute.
In defense of Apatow she said, “I think that everyone who is obsessed with Judd should be obsessed with this man [Cosby] who should not be working. I feel like Judd is the only one talking about it publically.
On Barris Konner commented, “He [Barris] was like, ‘You’re obsessed, ‘ and I was like, ‘Um, I wish more people were obsessed with a rapist [who assaulted women] when they were unconscious. … I thought it was insane. I wish that everyone was as obsessed [as Judd is] with the idea that [Cosby] should not be working and not be getting paid to work. … I feel like Judd is the only one talking about it really, publicly, or one of the only celebrities and certainly one of the only men talking about it. And so I think the reason he is going on and on about it is because no one else is, and thank God he is. Like, I’ve never been prouder to be his partner than at this moment.”
