The artist began a project back in January that uses characters from Cosby’s Fat Albert cartoon to send messages to the comedic icon. The cheeky cartoons are seen holding signs telling Cosby to admit his role in the over 30 sexual allegations he’s been accused of. FLOOD also added characters like Mushmouth and Dumb Donald to the cause this week.
In a statement to the New York Observer, the artist says he plans on bringing his project to Cosby’s hometown next.
I plan on bringing this campaign to Philadelphia as well as drawing all the Fat Albert characters in many ways protesting n prodding their creator to just admit it. — Flood Rock
Cosby has issued vague statements since the accusations began late last year. Earlier this month, he also released a video declaring his reign was far from over.
Meanwhile, Cosby was the butt of a joke once again by Hannibal Buress on Monday during Justin Bieber’s Comedy Central Roast.
The comedian nearly stole the show when he named-dropped Cosby during the ceremony.
“I don’t like you at all … I’m just here because it’s a really good opportunity for me,” he explained, adding, “I hate your music. I hate your music more than Bill Cosby hates my comedy.”
Other artists have also called the actor out for his alleged actions, including Rodman Edwards, who created a bronze sculpture of a naked Cosby called “Fat Albert Cries for Dr. Huxtable.”
