Judd Apatow: Bill Cosby Should 'Absolutely' Be in Jail
By Jackie Willis
Judd Apatow continued to vocalize his disapproval of Bill Cosby -- who has numerous sexual assault allegations against him -- in a conversation on Marc Maron's WTF podcast. Just like his Twitter rants, the Superbad producer doesn't hold back when getting into what he thinks The Cosby Show star deserves.
"I absolutely would like to see him in jail," he told Maron. "That’s where people who commit sexual assaults go."
Cosby has never been criminally charged for any of these allegations and has universally denied all claims.
Apatow admitted that one reason he's calling out the sexual assault claims against the comedian so often is because he thinks not enough celebrities are doing so in Hollywood. "If everybody was talking about it, I probably wouldn't have much to say about it," he said. "But I don’t want it to suddenly disappear and then he kind of just goes back out on the road and does his thing."
The director's tweet got so much attention that even Black-ish showrunner Kenya Barris called him out in December, writing: "Dude. Enough. Not defending him AT ALL, but u do realize this borders on strangely obsessive, right?"
