Bill Cosby’s publicist Andrew Wyatt has drawn criticism online after telling the television cameras that Bill Cosby’s “power is back” following Cosby’s mistrial.

You can watch the video with Wyatt’s statements here:

“Mr. Cosby’s power is back. It’s back. He has been restored,” Wyatt told reporters clustered outside the Pennsylvania courthouse after a judge declared a mistrial in Andrea Constand’s accusations against Cosby. He also had harsh words for the prosecution:

According to PR Week, Wyatt is the CEO and founder of a company named Purpose PR and “has worked with Cosby for more than six years. Before any allegations were made against the former sitcom star, Wyatt helped him with promotions for his college tours and fundraising events.”

Wyatt’s response to the Cosby mistrial was not the only comments to receive criticism. Cosby’s wife, Camille Cosby, unloaded in a harshly worded statement that criticized the DA, the judge, the media, and the accuser’s lawyers. She singled out Wyatt for praise in that statement, heralding his “unequivocal skills in public relations.”

You can read Camille Cosby’s statement here. She has been married to Bill Cosby for 53 years.

The judge declared a mistrial after the jury told him, following more than 5 days of deliberations, that it was hopelessly deadlocked on the allegations.

Cosby was accused of having sexual contact with Constand, a Temple University employee, without her consent years ago after giving her blue pills that made her woozy. Cosby alleged that the sexual contact was consensual. He admitted to the contact and to giving Constand pills in a previous civil deposition. Constand had filed a civil case against the comedian after a previous District Attorney refused to charge the case criminally.

Kevin Steele, the DA who did try Cosby, vowed to retry the comedian, so Cosby is not out of the woods yet. Wyatt has been giving statements on Cosby’s behalf all through the trial.

Wyatt’s statements about Cosby outraged many on social media because sexual assault is an act of violence.

DATE CONTRACT
.

If it’s deemed inappropriate to “take advantage” of someone under the influence of a “controlling substance”, then it’s inappropriate to use a “controlling substance” in order to effect “an advantage”! And for MANY YEARS!… AND FOR COUNTLESS “GOOD OLD BOYS”!… it has been thought “all right” to proceed with “taking advantage”, afterupon using a “controlling substance”! And such substances… in “modern times”!… AND FOR DECADES!… have gone beyond mere alcohol!
.
With alcohol… and in many instances!… the “target” of sundry respective “good old boys” has willingly accepted the alcohol/ “controlling substance”! And!… and in many instances!… the “target” has foreknown of, and was accepting of, the eventual “initimate gameplan” of the specific “good old boy”! And so!… the belated crys of respective “targets”, that such had “changed their minds” afterupon the use of the “controlling substance”, and the effecting of the “intimate gameplan” by the specific “good old boy”, have– often!– gone unacknowledged by respective authorities, and by “good old boy cliques” and their supporters! And, because SOMEONE hadn’t come up with a “DATE CONTRACT” to ensure that a “PARTICULAR OUTCOME” didn’t happen, the “he said, she said game”, was the common outcome!
.
Nevertheless!… the parallel scenario working its way through “social practices”, was– and is!– the use of “controlling substances” THAT/ WHICH T-R-U-L-Y H-A-V-E A MORE SIGNIFICANT DEGREE OF CONTROL OVER ITS WILLING/ UNWILLING/ UNKNOWING USERS!
.
But the MAIN ISSUE remains!… WAS THE “TARGET” OF A GIVEN RESPECTIVE “GOOD OLD BOY”, MADE AWARE OF, AND IN AGREEMENT WITH, THE USE OF A GIVEN “CONTROLLING SUBSTANCE”?… AND, MADE AWARE OF, AND IN AGREEMENT WITH, THE “INTIMATE GAMEPLAN” OF A SPECIFIC “GOOD OLD BOY”, AFTERUPON THE EFFECTUAL APPLICATION OF A GIVEN “CONTROLLING SUBSTANCE”?
.
To sum up… NO DOUBT, many respective “targets” of “good old boys” were FULLY AWARE, and in agreement with, the use of “controlling substances”, and of the “intimate gameplan” that respective “good old boys” had in mind! But!… NO DOUBT, many respective “targets” of respective “good old boys” were UNAWARE of the use of “controlling substances”, and of the “intimate gameplan” that many “good old boys” had in mind!
.
And so… what’s to be done? How can respective “targets” of respective “good old boys” prevent the use of “controlling substances” and “intimate gameplans”, before the fact of their implementation!… and, both satisfy legal authorities, and “interested parties”, THAT A WRONG HAD BEEN COMMITTED, and IS IN NEED OF REDRESS!
.
The answer… and one hinted at earlier!… is a “DATE CONTRACT”! And one not effected by the parties affected, but by way of an “INDEPENDANT REGISTRAR OF DATE CONTRACTS”!… and akin, to the Marriage Contract that/ which may BIND parties, to a marriage!… though, much less costly, and much more efficient and effective (and possibly processed, through one’s cellphone!… e.g., by way of a LEGALLY RECOGNIZED APP!)!
.
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!

Sad day when people are happy about a rapist walking away. Race played a factor in this.

If race had played a factor, he would’ve been killed long ago. Like African-Americans get such a f-ing break.
