This Is the Moment Where Bill Cosby First Got Exposed As a Rapist

Remember, it was comedian Hannibal Buress who bravely first exposed Bill Cosby as a rapist. He did it one night in 2014 on stage and the next day newspapers around the country reported it. Here's one of the original articles:

New York-based comedian Hannibal Buress took aim at Bill Cosby during his stand-up set Thursday night at Philadelphia's Trocadero Theatre, calling the 77-year-old "a rapist."

A video posted to features at least a portion of Buress' remarks, including when the 31-year-old identifies the Cosby Show star as "the f--king smuggest old black man public persona that I hate."

"He gets on TV, 'Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the '80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom,'" Buress mocked. "Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches."

"People think I'm making it up," he added. "That s--t is upsetting. If you didn't know about it, trust me. You leave here and Google 'Bill Cosby rape.' It's not funny. That s--t has more results than Hannibal Buress."

Buress got a chance to clarify his Cosby commentary (and address the reaction to it) on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show Tuesday. "It's a weird thing," he said of the public response to his remarks. "Somebody filmed my show in Philly, [but] I've been doing that bit off and on for six months, talking about the Cosby situation. But it's just information that's out there, you know?"

"[It] wasn't my intention to make it part of a big discussion," Buress told the shock jock. "It was just something that I was doing at that venue right there."

Reps for Cosby have yet to respond to E! News' request for comment regarding Buress' remarks.
