Bill Cosby has been heavily criticized since his 2018 conviction for sexual assault. While many have denounced and distanced themselves from the comedy legend, a few notable celebrities have defended and supported Cosby.
One of Cosby’s most outspoken supporters has been Boosie, who’s even expressed his desire to start a petition to get Cosby released from prison. While Cosby hasn’t made many public statements since his conviction, he broke his silence on Thursday and highlighted Boosie in an Instagram post that he called “Thank You Thursday.”
“On this 10th day of December 2020…I will pay homage to those who have supported me and my family, simply by saying, thank you,” the caption read. “The first person to be recognized on Thank You Thursday is Rapper Boosie. Thank you for your support & I’m praying for you to have a speedy recovery and for your mobility to be restored. Again, thank you very much.”
Bill Cosby was convicted on three aggravated indecent sexual assault charges in April 2018 and is currently serving a three to ten year sentence.
