Bill Cosby cannot hand his wife flowers or give her a kiss on her 75th birthday — incarceration has quite a few downsides — but he didn’t let the day pass with out recognizing it publicly.
Cosby, who’s serving 3 to 10 years for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand, had a person on Group Cosby post a message to his “beautiful bride, Camille” on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. It stated, “Dear, you are a excellent mother, loving wife, but most importantly, you are the strength of this loved ones. Please celebrate your day!”
Creating the post much more about him than her, it integrated the hashtags “Free Bill Cosby” and “Far From Completed,” the name of the 81-year-old’s final (and probably final) comedy tour.
It is unclear who precisely is operating Cosby’s social media accounts, but it is probably Andrew V. Wyatt, his trusted crisis manager. Wyatt has utilized Twitter and other platforms prior to to share Cosby statements — like the current 1 in which Cosby compared himself the Martin Luther King Jr. — or to market interviews he’s undertaking on Cosby’s behalf.
The cause Cosby is posting about his wife on social media, along with photographs of them in happier occasions, is for the reason that they agreed she will never ever check out him in prison. Neither will his remaining kids. Having said that, Cosby did say, via mouthpiece Wyatt, that he speaks to Camille 3 occasions a day by telephone for 3 minutes a call — the maximum quantity of time he can devote on the telephone at the Phoenix state prison in Pennsylvania.
Camille, a productive producer, has stridently supported her husband, who’s been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting dozens of ladies. (He has maintained his innocence.) She has stated that her husband is the genuine victim and that Constand, a former basketball coach at Temple University, lied. Throughout his retrial, Cosby’s attorneys stated he wasn’t a a criminal but rather a “lonely and troubled” philanderer, regardless of usually publicly painting a image of a pleased marriage with Camille, whom he stated “I do” to in 1964.
The world wide web does not know what to make of this birthday post, on a variety of unique levels, with quite a few men and women asking — or creating cracks — about who was posting. A single even recommended it was Camille herself.
I can not think she spent her birthday transcribing this tweet for him.

A lot of the other individuals had been comments and jokes with unique levels of brutality (some of which had been as well crude to involve).
