Cosbey Shown No Mercy by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

If you thought Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were going to shy away from making Bill Cosby jokes during their Golden Globes monologue… well, you don’t know Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The longtime friends and former Saturday Night Live co-stars waited until the end of their 10-minute opening to address the elephant in the room by describing the plot of nominee Into the Woods: “Cinderella runs from her prince, Rapunzel is thrown from a tower for her prince, and Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby.”
A collective gasp could be heard from the star-studded audience; nominee Jessica Chastain’s jaw dropped in the front row. (Girls star Lena Dunham could be seen loudly clapping, though.) But Fey and Poehler wouldn’t let up, exchanging impressions of Cosby making an admission of his alleged acts: “I put the pills in the people! The people did not want the pills in them!”

Cosby, of course, has weathered a storm of scandal over the past few months as allegations of rape and sexual abuse continue to pile up. Three new accusers came forward this week, bringing the total to 29, telling similar stories of Cosby drugging them and taking advantage of them while they were unconscious. Cosby has not made any public statement regarding the allegations, but NBC and Netflix have since shelved new comedy projects involving Cosby.
Fey has never been shy about making light of Cosby’s alleged indiscretions. She brought them up back in 2005 in a “Weekend Update” segment on SNL, and then made another reference to the Cosby allegations in a 2009 episode of 30 Rock. And when asked this week if Bill Cosby jokes were on the table, Fey replied, “Oh heck, yes.”
