(NEWSER) – Pro tip: If you have a sexual assault scandal in your background, you may not want to ask the general population to turn you into an Internet "meme." Apparently, no one told this to Bill Cosby, which is why his "meme generator" idea went horribly wrong yesterday.
Cosby put the generator on his website, then tweeted a link to it with the note, "Go ahead. Meme me!" and the hashtag #CosbyMeme. Well, challenge accepted: Many people did indeed create Cosby memes ... about the fact that the comedian settled a 2006 lawsuit with a woman who accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her, USA Today reports.
- "I just Googled 'Bill Cosby' and 'rape.'"
- "Define 'drugged.'"
- "Over a dozen women have accused me of being hilarious."
