Bill Cosby got slammed on social media after referring to himself as “America’s Dad” in a Father’s Day tweet, but it’s a role he’s apparently been playing for his fellow prison inmates.
Cosby’s rep says the disgraced funnyman has a large audience in prison who come to listen to him lecture about life a few times a week. Cosby talks about leading by example, staying out of trouble and being a good father. He mostly meets with a group called “Man Up” which consists of inmates due for parole and he talks to them about getting on the right track and staying out of prison.
Cosby also manages to work in some comedy in his lectures, which often attracts a crowd of about 100 inmates. (TMZ)
- Even though he’s done some unforgivable things, it’s good to hear he’s trying to make a positive difference in other people’s lives.
- It also benefits him to eventually show the parole board that he’s done a lot of good while in prison.
- It’s like having a Vegas residency. He does four show a week.
