If there is someone who is very vocal in supporting Bill Cosby, it definitely has to be Boosie. He has used social media on a number of occasions demanding Cosby’s release, and he has even spoken out about his support for Cosby in his interviews.
On Thursday, Cosby took the time to publicly thank Boosie for showing him support.
A tweet from Cosby’s Twitter account read: “On this December 10th, 2020 … I will pay homage to those who have supported me and my family by simply saying thank you. The first person to be recognized by Thank You on Thursday is rapper Boosie. Thank you for your support and I pray for a speedy recovery and restoration of your mobility. Thanks again. “
As we previously reported, Boosie used social media back in September and suggested starting a petition to get Cosby out of jail.
He simply said in a tweet, “Free Bill Cosby, let’s start a petition.”
As many of you know, Bill Cosby is currently serving time after being convicted of previous sexual assault.
Boosie also showed support for Cosby last year, comparing his case to Harvey Weinstein, saying, “If you check that, you’d better wake this racist up. That armadillo who looks like Harvey Weinstein was a goddamn man 100 days ago and he can pay for everything he did, for all the raped rapes he committed, but Bill Cosby couldn’t pay for his sh * t. The Jell-O-Mann had the money. That shows you that it is a racist mother world. “
Cosby’s reputation for Boosie also received mixed reviews.

What’s so funny about it is that Bill Cosby said rappers don’t represent black culture because they’re too vulgar. He was annoyed with her. Boosie is problematic for many reasons, but it’s amazing how many rappers have forgotten how Bill Cosby happily demonized them https://t.co/AgV3H4Fhr5

Boosie is exactly the kind of person Bill Cosby would have looked down on when he was free. How the tables have turned
