Bill Cosby to Be Released From Prison After Sentence For Sexual Assault Vacated, Harvey Weinstein Now Wondering “Me, Too?” From His Cell

A major miscarriage of justice happened today. Bill Cosby, who was convicted in 2018 of sexual assault charges, had his sentence vacated by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and is expected to be released from prison. The judges made this decision based on a violation of Cosby’s due process rights.

We’re not lawyers, so we won’t attempt to explain what that means. (But let’s take a moment to consider the irony of how the court ruled that poor ol’ Cosby’s rights were “violated” yet ignored the accusations of 60 women who accused Cosby of violating their rights.)

There’s nothing funny about the long, sordid, perverted history of “America’s Dad” and his alleged penchant for drugging women before assaulting them. But what is interesting is how, as all this courtroom drama was unfolding, the name Harvey Weinstein started trending on Twitter.

Why was the former Hollywood mogul, also convicted of sex crimes, on everybody’s minds? Well, because he’s also rich, famous, probably has a boardroom of lawyers, and would love nothing more than to be blessed with the same whacked fate as Cosby. In fact, we’d bet anything he’s pacing his cell right now, wondering, “Me, too?”

Here are some of the hilarious hot takes:

Lord and Lady Justice help us. What the world needs now is not one more powerful, terrible predator roaming free in the world. What we could go for right now, though, is a pudding pop.

Or maybe not.
