High schooler wants to create naked bronze statues of Bill Cosby
- Rodman Edwards wants to replace two public statues of Cosby with risque statues of Fat Albert and Dr. Cliff Huxtable.
- Edwards has never worked with bronze before and is unsure where the funding will come from.
In the wake of sexual assault accusations against Bill Cosby by thirty-three women, a 15-year-old wants Cosby to pay for his alleged crimes by creating two statues that would shame the comedian.
According to Huffington Post, California high school student Rodman Edwards wants to replace two public statues of comedian Bill Cosby with statues that depict a miniature Fat Albert, a cartoon character created by Cosby, covering the genitals of the naked, bloated body of Dr. Cliff Huxtable, Cosby's character from legendary sitcom The Cosby Show.
“I want people to see what Cosby is really like. I gave him a creepy look because he is a creepy guy. I was a big Fat Albert fan until I found out how he really was,” Edwards told HuffPo. “I just think if the allegations are true, then he should not be represented the way he is by the TV Hall of Fame. Until he apologizes, I think this is a more honest depiction of Cosby.”
Last year, thirty-three women accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them. The alleged assaults began in 1965 with many women saying Cosby drugged them as well. Cosby has denied the allegations.
Despite the fact that Edwards has never worked with bronze and is unaware of where funding for his project will come from, he plans to build the bronze statue after February 20th.
