The Bill Cosby #CosbyMeme Hashtag Backfired Immediately
Like, immediately. And it's now been taken down — updated!
On Monday, Bill Cosby — or more likely one of his representatives — posted a tweet asking fans to meme him. The link led to a meme generator on billcosby.com.
Right away, Twitter users began subverting the meme generator to comment on the 2006 rape allegations against Cosby. (He has never been charged with sexual assault.)
Cosby's publicist did not respond to a request for a comment from BuzzFeed News.
Monday night, the meme generator was removed from Cosby's website, and his tweet soliciting the fan interactivity disappeared. Cosby's publicist did not respond to another request to comment.
