Judd Apatow really doesn’t like Bill Cosby, at least not anymore. After almost singlehandedly leading a Twitter war against the embattled iconic comic who was once the most admired man in America, Apatow has now spoken out publicly against Cosby.
People have lost count as to how many women have now accused Bill Cosby of rape. He has been attacked by pretty much everyone and even Amy Pohler and Tina Fey mocked the former American icon using their platform as co-hosts of Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony to do so. But Apatow has been especially vicious towards Bill Cosby.
The director chose comedian Marc Maron’s podcast WTF as the venue for his first verbal statements against Bill Cosby. Apatow told Cosby to, “Go in your mansion and disappear.” He added, “I absolutely would like to see him in jail. That’s where people who commit sexual assaults go.”
Mr. Apatow also explained why he has made so many Twitter postings against Cosby saying, “If everybody was talking about it, I probably wouldn’t have much to say about it. But I don’t want it to suddenly disappear and then he kind of just goes back out on the road and does his thing.”
The man behind “Freaks and Geeks” as well as “The 40 year Old Virgin” was recently criticized for his Twitter rants against Cosby by fellow producer Kenya Barris who created the new hit comedy “Black-ish.” That set off somewhat of a second war on the twitter front. But Apatow told maron that he had since met with and squared things with barris.
