We can now add rapper and apparent legal expert The Game to the list of public figures who stand in support of beleaguered entertainer Bill Cosby. The West Coast vet took to Instagram to air out his frustrations, all while blasting the women for taking too long to come forth regarding their ordeal among other highlights.

The Game posted a singular image and added the following caption:

I think it’s crazy that Bill Cosby has a mugshot for alleged assaults 11 years ago with no physical evidence or proof besides these womens accounts of what he did to them an entire decade later…. But Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is FREE. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is FREE. Timothy Loehman, who killed Tamir Rice seconds after arriving on the scene.. on camera, is FREE. Officers who shot Keith Childress 19 times for holding a cellphone they thought was a gun, are FREE. Officers who arrested Sandra Bland & detained her until her mysterious death, are FREE. All of the officers who shot 50 rounds into Sean Bell’s car, on his wedding day, killing him, are FREE ! I could go on all day, but you get the point… & again, y’all put Dr. Huxtable in jail off of word of mouth. I’m not here to say these women are liars or not because RAPE is a huge deal & I don’t wish that on any woman of any color… But whether or not he actually did anything, we won’t know because of the lack of evidence or proof & the duration from the point of the alleged assault to now…. Why did it take these women over 10 years to bring this to the light ? & while we out here laughing & making memes of a 70+ year old man who practically raised us all on tv as children….in other news…. The people we pay taxes to keep employed are still taking the lives of men, women & even children, ON VIDEO, are out here enjoying the New Year FREE & I don’t see no memes of that sh*t…. & who am I except a man with an opinion……. So I’m not here to ask anyone to do anything other than pay attention & govern yourself accordingly – The Game #BlackLivesSplatter @black_lives_splatter

It comes off highly insensitive to suggest there’s some kind of time limit to come forth about a traumatic event, and no doubt there is some reason to be upset about Zimmerman and the named officers are free from jail. But to conflate the two points and blast folks for attempting to find justice in this ordeal doesn’t seem like the way to go.

And we shouldn’t have to remind anyone that Dr. Huxtable was a fictional character.
