Prior to being convicted and sentenced to prison for a number of offenses in 2018, Bill Cosby was known as “America’s Dad” and he lived up to that billing in the public and on screen. When he wasn’t pledging money to his alma mater Temple, or helping Spelman build out its magnificent panorama, he took time to tell young Black men how he felt about their fashion habits, their choice of music and their expletive-filled dialects.

Ironically, the iconic comedian has seemingly changed his course as of Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020, as he sent a shout-out to a rapper Boosie, who is known to sport baggy pants and use coarse language in his music.

Cosby undoubtedly chose to acknowledge Boosie because the rapper defended him after his updated and disheveled viral mugshot was released to the public.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter is having a field day with the idea of Cosby choosing Boosie as the first person he wanted to acknowledge on what he deems a “Thankful Thursday.” Among Boosie’s highlights, or lowlights this year, the Louisiana rapper went live to inform the social media masses that he arranged a sexual session for his underaged son. Boosie also professed his admiration for R. Kelly, who he said is a convincingly better talent than Michael Jackson and to top it off, was extremely critical of Dwyane Wade for allowing his son to identify as transgender.

Check out some of the backlash from Cosby’s tweet below.
