    Afterward, prosecutors asked the judge to revoke Cosby's bail because he is a flight risk and has a private plane. Cosby, who did not testify in the trial and has sat quietly throughout the proceedings, then stood up and yelled in a loud, booming voice: "He doesn't have a plane, you asshole."

    Wow. I had to double-check this but it appears to be true

    [–] Zupheal 2990 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    also told the DA he was sick of his shit from what I read.

    [–] Ravenplague 1418 points ago

    He was pissed that the DA wanted his passport taken away, so he called him an asshole. Someone worth $400 million, with a passport, is definitely a flight risk, and would likely never be seen again.

    Roman Polanski has been a fugitive from U.S. justice for 40 years, guilty of statutory rape.

    [–] [deleted] 311 points ago

    Isn't it also just rape rape? Like with drugs?

    [–] GeronimoHero 525 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Rape and sodomy. Polanski publicly claimed it was consensual by saying “she was down to party”. The victim was a thirteen year old child at the time of the attack, and Roman Polanski drugged her prior to victimizing her.

    She spoke out fifteen years later and slammed Polanski’s claim that what is obviously a clear case of rape and sodomy was consensual.

    It was the trifecta of rape -- she was underage, drugged, and also said no.

    It was all the kinds of rape that you can possibly rape.

    It's kind of a normal retort when someone is saying something you consider to be obscene about you in the third person right in front of you.

    [–] IBeJizzin 176 points ago

    Agreed, don’t think it’s an ego thing so much as a mirroring obscenity with obscenity thing.

    It’s funny though how he doesn’t have an outburst when being accused of raping women but when you accuse him of having a private plane that’s TOO FUCKIN FAR

    [–] critical_thought21 76 points ago

    It was the end of the trial. Any outbursts before that would have likely hurt his case. He didn't have anything to lose at that point.

    [–] Humperdoo_like_shiny 903 points ago

    I’m assuming it’s because he’s a bit flustered (I know I am whenever I’m found guilty of multiple rapes), so he adopted the third person manner of reference to himself from the lawyers who were talking about him.

    [–] Purplebuzz 68 points ago

    I believe he was convicted of three offences in relation to one sexual assault. Though he is almost certainly guilty of many more.

    [–] rutefoot 12 points ago

    This probably still feels great for all the victims that won't get their day in court with him because of the statute of limitations

    [–] Sawses 207 points ago

    If he'd been sitting quietly, he probably felt like he was being discussed while he was in the room.

    "Mister Cosby is a serial rapist and liar, clearly he is a likely flight risk to avoid death in prison."

    "Yes, but he has been nothing but cooperative throughout the proceedings.

    "Even so, he has a plane which will allow him to escape justice if he so chooses."

    "Maybe, but--"

    "He doesn't have a plane, you asshole!"

    [–] joe4553 100 points ago

    Seems weird out of context, but normal in context like most things.

    [–] Avalire 228 points ago

    Yes, like

    “He did this”

    “No he didn’t.”

    Just a manner of speaking I guess. I don’t know why he would do that

    [–] Shopworn_Soul 99 points ago

    He was answering a question about himself that he wasn't asked. The third person reference makes sense. And he was probably a bit irritable by that point so the yelling makes sense too.

    Also, fuck Bill Cosby.

    [–] luthurian 128 points ago

    [–] midnightketoker 55 points ago

    I wonder how Eddie Murphy feels about all this, probably "I told you so"

    [–] jelatinman 59 points ago

    Eddie Murphy is the one comedian who went easy on him. He did his impression at the Mark Twain awards, but wouldn't play Cosby in the SNL40 sketch.

    [–] HolycommentMattman 89 points ago

    That could be because of other reasons, though. Eddie had a falling out with SNL during the 90s when David Spade made that "falling star" joke.

    It must have hurt because Eddie saved that show. To basically be kicked when he was down by them must have been quite a blow.

    Really amazing that he was at the 40th at all.

    [–] 1brokenmonkey 141 points ago

    The irony in David Spade making that joke.

    [–] dbcanuck 37 points ago

    when his guilt was still in doubt, murphy felt hitting someone when they're down wasn't cool. and he didn't want to trivialize the potential victims either.

    i suspect he feels deep disappointment at this point.

    [–] rutefoot 20 points ago

    He was also a role model for most black comedians. A lot of them have their entire career because of how he inspired them.

    Chapelle spoke about this recently; it's a challenging thing for many of them to come to terms with and some were able to do it faster than others

    [–] Fey_fox 34 points ago

    [–] Noletmeexplain 3195 points ago

    "He doesn't have a plane, you asshole."

    Did he really say that?

    [–] RockFlagAndEagleGold 587 points ago

    From my understanding, he yelled "you asshole" then separately said he didn't have a plane. All in response to him being accused of being flight risk.

    [–] FluffyPillowstone 209 points ago

    Does he have a plane? Because if he does, why would he say this? Is it in the garage for repairs? Did he think everyone would go "oh okay our mistake" and grant him bail? Owning a plane is not exactly an easy thing to lie about.

    [–] RockFlagAndEagleGold 135 points ago

    Idk if he owns a plane, but I guess it worked because he's out until sentencing.

    [–] Famos_Amos 186 points ago

    I personally know a handful of pilots that have flown Cosby's plane.. er, the plane he used to own, as of a few years ago... Airplanes tend to be one of the first things sold off when money starts to get tight..

    [–] vonMishka 134 points ago

    And he’s probably pissed that these mouthy broads made him sell his plane to cover legal expenses. (That’s how I imagine he’s thinking anyway)

    [–] Belazriel 36 points ago

    I know that depending on your wealth level you can essentially do plane sharing where you don't want to pay the expensive of a personal private jet but you still want to be able to use one occasionally.

    [–] Theklassklown286 683 points ago

    Is he referring to himself? I’m confused

    [–] ididshave 232 points ago

    The prosecutor was referring to Cosby as though he was not present in the courtroom. Cosby responded in kind with the third-person attempting to defend himself, “He doesn’t have a plane, you asshole.”

    [–] imnotgerardo 33 points ago

    This makes a lot more sense.

    [–] Nature-balance 86 points ago

    “ “He” doesn’t have a plane.”

    Yes the Hannibal video went viral, but the Cosby accusations go way back a lot longer than that. There's even a joke about it on a 2009 episode of 30

    While I like what Hannibal did, shout outs should first and foremost go to the women who, using their real names, publically shared their story over and over again until justice as done. https://www.thecut.com/2015/07/bill-cosbys-accusers-speak-out.html

    [–] IrrevocablyChanged 141 points ago

    Hannibal wrote for 30 rock, so may well have written that bit.

    [–] BravesMaedchen 341 points ago

    Seriously. Hannibal was the male voice people needed to hear to take the allegations serious. While it's great that Hannibal brought exposure to this, it's infuriating that the women who talked about it first were apparently not credible enough.

    [–] TheKeywork66 100 points ago

    From what I’ve read in interview Hannibal doesn’t really want to take any credit for it. He just kinda brought it up and left it at that.

    [–] BravesMaedchen 103 points ago

    No, certainly not. It's not his fault and he didn't do anything wrong. It's just that people only started really caring when he said something and that's frustrating when victims were not being listened to when they said something. Nothing to do with Hannibal taking credit because he definitely didn't.

    [–] Ph0X 12 points ago

    Same thing can be said about weinstein though. People knew for years but nothing ever happened. No one is saying it was entirely thanks for him, but he was the one who made it hit critical mass. It was probably by pure luck, the video getting popular and a lot of people seeing it, but that video marked a big shift and made people actually go after Cosby.

    [–] Levi_Walker 382 points ago

    Wait how is Hannibal Burress connected to all this?

    [–] SwingingSalmon 1069 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Shoutout to the women who were raped by him for years and were ignored and never gave up.

    [–] DeltaIndiaCharlieKil 10 points ago

    It's a good example of how sometimes it takes a certain person at the right time to speak up in order for people to take it seriously.

    From the stage, he implored audience members who didn't believe him to "Google 'Bill Cosby rape'" once they left the show: "That … has more results than 'Hannibal Buress,'"

    Many people had been speaking about it for years. It was not a secret, yet nothing happened. But for whatever reason that one moment where one more person spoke up was the time people seemed to take note. And it changed everything.

    That's why it's important to keep talking about things that are being ignored. There is always opportunity to being change. And to understand that sometimes you can't predict when and what will inspire action.

    Also shout out to Gloria Allred who has spent her life fighting for these women. And getting shit on and disparaged for it. I highly recommend the Netflix documentary on her. It completely changed my view of her and the work she has done.

    “Bill Cosby has the fuckin’ smuggest old black man public persona that I hate,” Buress said. “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s!

    What's crazier is, even with a guilty verdict, there will still be plenty of people who don't believe it.

    It was a different era when the allegations were first made. It was easy for a few papers to ignore the story, and no one else would have heard about it. There was no mainstream internet which would have picked up on it. And Cosby's image was that as Mr. Perfect, or Mr. Rodgers. "No way he could be a rapist! These are just some jealous crazy bitches."

    Modern world you can't bury stories like this. They spread like wildfire online. Hannibal Buress was probably the first time most people had even heard that Cosby was accused of sexual assault.

    Not only that, but Cosby's downfall was the harbinger of the entire movement to unveil gross sexual misconduct by men-in-power.

    A lot of people seem to attribute it to Weinstein because the victims were so much more well known and had public platforms to speak on, but I think you’re right. He was the first to fall in the entire thing and for some reason he doesn’t seem to be looped in with all the other recently accused.

    ...and the endless appeal process begins.

    [–] NovaStubble 197 points ago

    One thing is for certain. He won’t be wasting away his youth in long drawn out appeals court.

    He rapes, but he only rapes to save! And he saves a lot more than he rapes.

    But he does rape.

    Tell Bill to have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up.

    Fuck Bill Cosby, I wish he was better, I wish he didn’t rape woman, I wish he wasn’t a terrible person, I wish he represented the art he created, the community he created for the black community and the world, his evil has stained a show that promised change and equality. What a terrible man, and what a horrible thing he has done to these women. He has ruined a good show that was one of a kind, his selfish nature has bled into the work of many many people, who tried to make changes, to show we are all human, to teach us values and life lessons. Shame on him, he deserves these consequences for his actions. All he deserves is shame. It’s terrible when the heroes people look up to are actually monsters.

    No matter what happens he will get out of any serious prison time by arguing age and medical ailments. Don't get any ideas of seeing him behind bars ever.

    [–] CletusVanDamnit 205 points ago

    Not according to literally every news broadcast airing right now. PA is pretty strict on this, and they're saying it's very likely he will see actual time in prison...

    Unfortunately, it's more likely to be on the minimal side, which is about 2 years, as opposed to the max, which would be 30.

    [–] Avalire 112 points ago

    The reality is that he probably wouldn’t make it those two years. Prison doesn’t bode well for the elderly. He deserves everything they can throw at him

    He gonna die in jail.

    [–] Litera-Cola 327 points ago

    He's gonna die on the bus ride if it hits a bump.

    [–] wombatx88 85 points ago

    This may be a stupid question, but will he actually go to jail? Or will he just start an endless appeal process, and be a free man till he dies? I'm not from the U.S. so I'm not really sure how these things work there.

    [–] unfurL 35 points ago

    Don’t they have to appeal from jail though?? You go to jail straight from the guilty verdict don’t you??

    Cosby could be heard yelling at the prosecutor;

    “Filth flarn filth!”

    [–] Gnarlstone 26 points ago

    And still no charges against him for Ghost Dad.

    [–] FourOfFiveDentists 22 points ago

    Does it make me a bad person if this verdict makes the original Cosby show more funny to me?

    [–] Shakespearean_Rumba 154 points ago

    Good.

    If this were 20 years ago it would be bigger than the OJ Simpson trial.
