Bill Cosby became a free man after serving three years of a ten year sentence. Although many feel he should be locked up bars until his last days, some think that America’s former dad has been through enough. Cosby is currently 84 years old and, in addition to serving his time, is in deteriorating health and has seen his legacy completely destroyed. According to comedian Earthquake, it might be time to leave Bill Cosby alone and let the actor live out his remaining days without any additional trials.
Prior to being incarcerated, Bill Cosby was already struggling with health issues. In 2014, the actor woke up one morning and could no longer see. It was later discovered that his vision could not be restored as he was suffering from a condition called “keratoconus.” This condition is caused by thinning of the cornea and eventually causes the eyes to bulge. This forced Cosby to become housebound and reliant on his wife, Camile. Bill called it his own “personal hell.” By 2018, Cosby was 80-years-old experiencing a new form of “hell” following his sentencing. Initially scheduled to last ten years, Cosby got out after three due to a technicality stemming from a plea deal he too years prior. It is said that the comic relied on other inmates while in incarcerated to help him get around due to his blindness.
In 2021, Bill Cosby was released at the age of 83 and began trying to find some sibilance of normalcy again. While many had turned their back on him and his reputation was in shreds, his team still promised fans a tour and documentary to help rehabilitate Cosby’s image. Due to his blindness, they discussed how live shows would be rehearsed and how they would adapt the experience so that the comic could reconnect with the public. “When he would perform, we’d draw a wide straight yellow line from backstage to the chair on the stage, and he’d rehearse the walk, hours before the show,” Cosby spokesperson Andrew Wyatt told The Sun last year. Unfortunately for Bill Cosby, 84 he found himself back in court earlier this month where he was found guilty and ordered to pay his Judy Huth $500,000. Now that Cosby’s case with Judy Huth is over, the actor is still facing one more case. Actress Lili Bernard is suing the actor for $225 million.
According to Vlad TV and comic Earthquake, it might be time to just let Cosby’s remaining years be their own punishment for him. Now blind and disliked by the public, the pair argue that it cannot get any worst for Cosby, who is already “980” years old, joked the men. “Let it go,” said Earthquake. “There’s nothing you can put on his record that can do what you’ve already done to him.” Vlad chimed in, saying, “yeah, his legacy is shot. To the general population, he is no longer Cliff Huxtable.” Both men think Bill should sit down and be thankful he got out of this situation.
