Despite being in prison, it seems like Bill Cosby had some time to vent from frustrations on twitter. He or someone who manages the account tweeted a string of Thanksgiving tweets that urged people to avoid the nation’s giant media outlets and support black-owned news outlets that “propel the truth.”
“It’s Black Friday, so lets spend our dollars with Black Press USA & all Black media outlets that propel the truth and the facts, not Fake News,” read a tweet from the comedian. “The truth is in the pudding, this week Black Press USA proved its power and relevance to the world.”
The tweet also included a link to the interview with BlackPressUSA.com. This comes after a November 24 interview with BlackPressUSA.com where Cosby called the case that sent him to prison a “setup” and described jurors as “imposters” and that he “feels no remorse.” Cosby had told the outlet that he has less than a year before he is eligible for parole. The parole board usually looks for any signs of remorse, something that Cosby does not have.
“I have eight years and nine months left,” Cosby said. “When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know… It’s all a set up. That whole jury thing. They were imposters.”
In his final tweet, he thanked the Native Americans and referred to himself as “The Educator & The Political Prisoner”
