Jemele Hill Urged to ‘Stop Mind F–king Black Community’ After Rant Against ‘Rapist’ Bill Cosby

*Jemele Hill isn’t here for Snoop Dogg calling for the release of accused sexual predator Bill Cosby

Last week, the disgraced comedian praised Snoop for calling out Gayle King after she asked about the Kobe Bryant rape case in an interview with WNBA star Lisa Leslie. 

Cosby is currently serving three to 10 years in state prison for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, but he made time on Thursday to salute Snoop for putting King on blast while calling for his release. 

The West Coast legend slammed King and her bestie Oprah Winfrey for targeting Black men at the center of sexual assault allegations, while ignoring similar cases of white males.

Snoop posted a photo of Winfrey standing next to accused rapist Harvey Weinstein along with the caption: “Did that fake ass micheal Jackson s— to tarnish his name with them lying ass kids and here she is with a known rapist smiling and laughing. F– u and Gayle. Free bill Cosby” — peep the post below. 

“I’mma just go sit down somewhere,” Hill wrote on Twitter in response to Cosby praising Snoop for asking for the former TV star’s freedom (see above). She shared an article about Cosby’s sexual assault allegations in a follow-up tweet, writing: “For those still supporting Bill Cosby, is the first-person account of Beverly Johnson, the first black supermodel, saying Cosby drugged her and attempted to rape her enough for you to stop acting like Cosby is suffering an injustice?”

In a third tweet, she reminded Black folks how Cosby once criticized the culture.

“Bill Cosby was the same dude telling black men they didn’t deserve any respect because they wore their pants too low, they listened to hip hop, and cussed too much,” Hill wrote. “But please, come to the defense of someone who loved to moralize to our community while raping women.”

Folks were quick, however, to remind Hill that Cosby never actually raped anyone.

Filmmaker Tariq Nasheed noted on Twitter, “Out of all the dozens of women who accused Cosby, I have a simple question.. Which one did he rape? He didn’t even rape the woman he is currently in jail over (thats why the sentence is NOT for rape) So WHO did he rape?”

YouTuber and Twitter user @BLKLiberation84 urged Hill to “stop mind fucking the black community,” she wrote. Adding, “Just because Bill Cosby wanted us to do better in the community doesn’t mean you can CONFLATE him being set up by a racist D.A. and Judge! Learn the facts and stop being so easily misled!”

In a follow-up tweet she said, “The reason these women came out in full force was to cover up for Andrea Constand’s WEAK and nonexistent allegations. The D.A. knew this and used 5 of these women during the trial.”

She then reminded “those who didn’t bother to research up on Cosby’s case or read the deposition,” his accuser, Andrea Constand, “also gave Cosby a “hand job” during their sexual rendezvous. But of course the media didn’t tell y’all that,” she wrote. Adding the hashtag: #FreeBillCosby

Hill also addressed Snoop’s support for Cosby in a comment on the rapper’s Instagram post. 

“I love you bro, but please remember that Bill Cosby also victimized black women,” Hill said. “I’m glad he was able to present a positive picture of a black Dad, but he also was very anti-black in other parts of his life.”

Last week, Snoop posted a video on his social showing him threatening King for seemingly attempting to tarnish Kobe’s legacy during her interview with Leslie.  

“Gayle King, [you] out of pocket for that shit, way out of pocket,” Snoop said in an Instagram video. “What do you gain from that? I swear to god, we the worst. We the fucking worst. We expect more from you Gayle. Don’t you hang out with Oprah? Why y’all attacking us? We your people! You ain’t come after fucking Harvey Weinstein, asking them dumb-ass questions. I get sick of y’all.”
