Bill Cosby Maybe Raped Women And Everyone Hates Him

Everyone on the internet has taken torches to Bill Cosby the past couple weeks. A comedian Hannibal Buress, who has jokes in his stand-up about rape, made comments about how Bill Cosby once raped someone. And suddenly everyone has gone anti-Cosby. The girl is being interviewed, a bunch of other girls are now saying "OH YEAH, ME TOO!" And washed up model Janice Dickinson who once wrote about how they didn't have sex once, now says "Oh wait actually we did and it was rape!" And some other actress from the 70's is going on about how he forced oral sex on her in 1971 just remembers now about it all in 2014 and decides to say something? Because of this, every single person I see on Twitter and in articles has gone bull blown anti-Cosby. All of this, with zero proof that any of this is true.

Now, Cosby did have these allegations thrown at him, and he settled out of court. A long time ago. Actually this whole incident happened in the 1970's. And some women are saying as recent as 2004 this happened. Now remember, these are accusations. There has been no proof at all that any of this has actually happened. He had a new NBC sitcom planned, a comedy special for Netflix, and The Cosby Show was still in reruns. Ever since all of this has came about, NBC cancelled his show, Netflix cancelled the special, and all reruns of The Cosby Show have been pulled. All over things that happened years ago. If people really cared that much, why was no one raising such a stink about it back then? Oh yeah, social media.

Social Media was pretty fun, a neat way to keep up with what friends were doing, and interact with them and new people. To find people who shared similar interests and discuss them, or maybe debate things that are going on in the world. But in the past year social media has changed. It has now become a platform for people to bitch and complain about anything and everything. And not because they really believe in it, but mainly just so they can get the retweets, favorites, and jump around yelling "LOOK AT ME!" Sure there are a few people who really are trying to make a statement, but a huge majority of others, are just trying to jump on on the latest trending Twitter topic. Want proof? Wait a month and see how many people are going on about Bill Cosby then. No one will be. People comment and make a fuss about topics for a couple weeks and then move on to something else that's trending.

So here's what I want to know. Why be so mad at Bill Cosby, but not others? Bill Cosby "allegedly" rapes someone, and gets hell for it. Mike Tyson actually does rape someone, not allegedly he really did, and now he has a cartoon on Cartoon Network. What? Kobe Bryant "allegedly" raped someone, settled out of court, and because he changed his jersey number and won a championship everyone forgets? Chris Brown beats the holy living shit out of a female, and is given awards and performance spots on MTV. What?

If you're going to be all pissed at Bill Cosby over something that might have happened 40 years ago, why are you not mad at the other celebrities that have done things as well? Oh, they're not trending.

Big Lots Fires Man For Trying To Stop A Crime

I understand stores, especially corporate stores, don't really want employees to stop shoplifters. It can cause all kinds of problems, but when that employee is your store manager and has dedicated insane work hours to your business to help sales and run the store to perfect? Not to mention a father of 4. I think firing him over the situation is a little bit of a dick move.

I know this site generally only posts entertainment gossip and news, but this story really bugged me. I was going to call this post, Big Lots, More Like Big Dicks, but you can see how that wouldn't really work out. What Big Lots did was a dick move. There needs to be more people in the world like this guy. A hard working Dad who provides for his family and is a 100% dedicated employee, getting screwed over because he was trying to just do what Batman would do, stand up for justice. And protect the assets of the company he works for. Here is the story of what went down, from the guys fiancee.

Dear Weinstein Company, Please Bring Back Michael Myers!

Every horror movie these days is pretty standard. Ghost kids. Weird ghosts. Random objects that summons ghosts. And 1 out of every 50 or so that come along actually work.

I miss my slashers. I miss my unstoppable killing machines.

Face it, the Rob Zombie Halloween movies were awful. No true fan of Halloween, like Zombie claims he is, would take a giant dump on the legacy of Michael Myers by having him be a run of the mill redneck kid with redneck parents who goes crazy. John Carpenter did it to perfection. Halloween 2 was great, 4 and 5 were good, 6 was weird, but it worked and it fit. Halloween H20 brought it all back to the first two movies and it was awesome. It was done perfectly. Then Halloween Busta Rhymes came along and while the opening was kind of cool, the rest was just pointless.

Kids Have It Too Easy Today

While writing the article about the Game Boy's 25th anniversary, I went off on a small tangent about how kids today can't appreciate things like video games. And after I finished the post I sat back in my chair and realized, kids today have it way too easy.

I spend a lot of time playing games online late at night. Almost every night. And I gotta say a good 80% of the squeaky voiced gamers are pretty much assholes. I see it everywhere. In grocery stores, malls, all over. Kids today are crazy annoying, and I think I know why. They have it way too easy. They don't have to work for a single thing. I don't mean getting a job, I mean having to go through the tougher things in life like my generation did just about 15 years or so ago. Like having access to porn.

Justice League movie confirmed to follow Batman Vs. Superman!

In news that should come as no surprise, Warner Bros. Announced today that Zack Snyder, the man behind Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman, will also director Justice League. This could be amazing, or awful. It's kind of a sink or swim approach but I will hold off judgement until Bats Vs. Supes is out. Which I can't wait for!

No release date has been announced but with Batman Vs. Superman coming out in 2016 it's a good bet that 2018 we will see the arrival of Justice League. Along with Batman and Superman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg are confirmed for Batman Vs. Superman but will we see some other heroes pop up as well? Flash? Aquaman? Green Arrow?
