( 4UMF NEWS ) Amy Schumer Pokes Fun At Bill Cosby:
Amy Schumer is defending Bill Cosby on rape charges — at least in the Court of Public Opinion.
The star is sure to come under fire for the bold skit which premiered on Tuesday’s episode of “Inside Amy Schumer”, which sees her defending the embattled comedian against multiple allegations of sexual assault.
Schumer tackles the ongoing scandal by presenting his fictional trial in the “court of public opinion,” and contrasts the allegations against Cosby with his beloved TV persona.
“We’ve heard a lot of stuff about what’s happened in the past few weeks, about what may or may not have happened,” she says.
“All these women, same story, same facts. But how do you feel when I play this?” she says, before screening a short clip from “The Cosby Show.”
“Did anybody feel raped by that?” she asks. “How about drugged?”
“I felt comforted by a familiar father figure: nostalgia,” Schumer added.
“I’m a good person. I like this good show. Last time I checked good plus good did not equal guilty.”
The prosecution protests Schumer’s argument, but she steamrolls past her by gifting the jury with the comedian’s signature items: pudding pops and Cosby sweaters.
“How can the face of such a yummy treat do anything bad?” Schumer says.
Schumer concludes her argument by telling the jury that to convict Cosby would be to punish themselves for their love of his show.
“This is a court of public opinion,” she says. “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 watch like no one’s raping.”
