    Question what was the big deal about the Cosby Suite?

    am i the only one who thinks that the photo of the devs posing with that big ass cosby portrait was hilarious? why doesn't anyone have a sense of humor anymore?

    Milk was a bad choice.

    Because it's connected to behavioral patterns where women were sexually harassed, to the point where one of them KILLED HERSELF.

    If that falls under "sense of humor" for you, that might be part of the problem.

    Because the man was accused and convicted of raping multiple women, and that might be a problematic image for a company to have..?

    hm i guess i could comment on it but it would lead to infraction so i wont.

    all i will say is its 2021 - everyone is offended by everything

    if it was like this in 90s series like south park would never exist .

    thanks god i was born in 80s and could leave through 90s and 00s - feel sorry for kids who are growing up in this kind of woke sjw enviroment - they will never live through fun times we had .

    Just some boys having fun, if this was Bob Ross suite it wouldn't get any attention - not as if they could predict what was going to happen to Cosby.

    I can see your confusion, since you just had also made the "Should I do 16 year olds in 18 year old age of consent state" thread.

    Most people however aren't confused about these things.

    Bad timing I guess, but this photo is from 2013. Few knew what a monster he is and I doubt no one here hasn't done some grey line joke with his friends.

    That doesn’t matter anymore. Woke SJW’s will try to destroy someone over an action that is retroactively found to be wrongthink. As far as the accusations against Blizzard are concerned, I have no idea who is actually telling the truth. But my best guess is that there was some real wrongdoing that is being leveraged into a woke witch hunt to ‘cancel’ many people who are innocent.

    The woman that killed herself was in part of Activision and not blizzard. Yea I know it's Activision blizzard but there are still separate studios.

    Yes, this is true.But, isn't it a bit supsicious, that a group of people that sexually harasses women, names their room after a man who has allegedly sexually harassed womens for years (the allegations were made well before 2013).

    amm... I am pretty sure first accusations came out like 2004.

    Regardless of that - context matters, in normal context you could argue it's some kind of locker room jokes/"dark humor" here in between some friends, but when people were actually displaying these traits… there is a massive fucking difference.

    Some of y'all might want might to brush up on Cosby's history:

    https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment...ry?id=47799458

    TLDR: The first accusations started back in 2004, reported to police in 2005 and the first civil lawsuit in 2005 also. Even if he wasn't convicted, his reputation was at the very least in question way before 2013.

    I consider myself one of those who can find humor in almost anything and crack a joke about it so the picture doesn't offend me but it's also one of those things that will obviously offend others, especially given the news that have come out in the last week or so.

    Yeah kids growing up have it so tough now, they will actually be held accountable for sexual harrassment, assault, and rape. Oh no!

    Fucking hell you're a nasty little retarded cunt.

    No. The first allegations against him started way before 2013. So you need to learn his history and stop acting like it's all fine these people celebrated a serial rapist:

    There are multiple news threads including a couple that are very specifically about the topic. In addition there's a thread in General Off-Topic about this, the lawsuit and other sundry matters.

    Since this forum is meant to be largely about the game this will be closed. There are plenty of other places to post. Use them.
