For those that grew up watching Kenan Thompson on Nickelodeon’s sketch comedy series All That, you know that one of his first famous impressions was impersonating Bill Cosby. Years later and Cosby would go on to be Kenan’s boss and mentor.
After Thompson got his feet wet on All That, the comedian worked with Bill Cosby on the live-action comedy film Fat Albert. Fat Albert was originally a cartoon television series created by Cosby and ran for six seasons. Now, in the light of the sexual molestation allegations, Thompson sounded off on what he thinks of his old boss. Although Cosby was a mentor, that doesn’t change the way Kenan feels about him.
Speaking at the University of Pittsburgh, Kenan told the audience that Bill Cosby had transformed into a “monster.”
According to a Redditor who was in attendance, and a student at the University of Pittsburgh, Kenan didn’t hold back when it came to telling stories about Bill Cosby.
Thompson told a story about a weird comment Cosby made to him as he was filming Fat Albert.
“So Cosby pulled me aside and said that after the movie comes out, it’ll be so hard to keep the women off you, you’ll need two d—s.” We bet you can fill in the blanks and imagine what Cosby said to Thompson.
That’s not all, Thompson said that when he brought his mother to see Bill Cosby he got “creepy” with her and “bounced her on his lap and said something about horse riding like a kiddie.”
With that, the SNL veteran added that he knew Cosby had exhibited odd behavior but didn’t put two and two together. According to the student in attendance, “He said he wished someone had a recording or something so the guy can go to jail.”
