Bill Cosby has earned backlash after a Father’s Day message referring to himself as “America’s dad” was shared on his social media channels.

The comedian, who is currently serving a prison sentence for aggravated indecent assault, shared the message on Saturday on Twitter and Instagram.

“Hey, Hey, Hey…It’s America’s Dad…” the message begins, in reference to Cosby’s former nickname.

“I know it’s late, but to all of the Dads… It’s an honor to be called a Father, so let’s make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our purpose – strengthening our families and communities.”

On both platforms, the message is accompanied by a video of Cosby in the 1968 CBS documentary Black History: Lost, Stolen or Strayed.

“After slavery was over, America kept breaking up the black man’s family,” Cosby says in the archive clip.

“And that’s some awful history to teach. Now, if you want to look history right straight in the eye, you’re going to get a black eye.”

He used several hashtags on Twitter and on Instagram, including #RenewedOathToOurCommunity, #AmericasFavoriteDad, and #FarFromFinished.

Cosby’s decision to call himself “America’s dad” was met with outraged reactions on social media.

“Just stop. This is awful,” one person wrote, while many others expressed their disagreement in gifs.

Cosby was sentenced in September last year to three to 10 years behind bars.

He was found guilty in April that year of three counts of aggravated indecent assault in a landmark trial.

NBA Issues Drake A Warning Over “Use Of Bad Language”

Drake’s trash talking might come to a halt.

Drake doesn’t seem to have a similar career path as Master P and will likely never end up joining the NBA and flexing his basketball skills, but being the Global Ambassador for the Raptors does allow him to sit courtside and ultimately, talk his shit to players as if he was on the court. A few days a go, the rapper and Kendrick Perkins had a heated moment during the game which resulted in security intervening. While no fight broke out, it seemed to warrant enough of a concern that the NBA has reportedly given Drake a warning on his choice of language during games.

USA Today Sports reports that Drake’s been issued a warning by the NBA over “the use of bad language” during the games. This comes shortly after his confrontation with Kendrick Perkins during Game 1 of the Cavs vs. the Raptors. League spokesperson Tim Frank said that the Raptors have also discussed this with Drake already.

There hasn’t been any details on the warning nor does it seem like he’ll be facing any sort of punishment for it but there’s a good chance we won’t be getting any more viral moments from the rapper in the future. This season the NBA has also taken an effort to stop fan misconduct which also includes the use of verbal abuse.
