In a brilliant sketch she held a mock trial of public opinion about Cosby in which Schumer played his defense attorney.
Of course the feminist Schumer took the role of the defense upon herself.
As such she said, “Let’s remind ourselves what’s at stake here: If convicted, the next time you put on a rerun of The Cosby Show, you may wince a little. You might feel a little pang. And none of us deserve that! We don’t deserve to feel that pang. We deserve to dance like no one’s watching and to watch like no one’s raping.”
The issue is not whether Cosby is guilty, but can we still enjoy his comedy knowing what he did?
We’ll let you enjoy the sketch for yourselves.
