The fuck up!!!
Really? Not the clean-cut comedian and famous father from the 80’s hit television series, “The Cosby Show?” Well, according to Russell Simmons, he did.
This verbal backlash supposedly went down at the Jackie Robinson Annual Awards Dinner on March 7., held at the Waldorf-Astoria. Simmons tried to apologize to Cosby for their ongoing beef.
The two have been sparring since 2009, when Cosby launched his “State of Emergency” campaign promoting socially conscious rap music without lyrics celebrating violence, sex or the degradation of women.
Simmons heavily criticized the effort, but tried to make amends with Cosby at the dinner.
“I wanted to find him to apologize, to tell him I was sorry about my statements and to tell him that I loved him,” the rap mogul wrote on his blog, Globalgrind.com but instead, according to Simmons, Cosby said, “Get the “fuck” out my face!” …..Whoa!
Simmons also wrotes that Cosby “walked by me and bumped me with his shoulder as I walked offstage after presenting my award to Sean Combs, who was honored at the event . . .I then loved him even more.”
Through a rep, Cosby had this to say, “I don’t want to discuss it.”
