Bill Cosby Meme

Talk about bad timing!

Bill Cosby's social media team attempted to create a fun meme-generator, but unfortunately released it into the world at a very poor time. Cosby's Twitter shared a link for the generator and tweeted, "Go ahead. Meme me!"

And he was definitely meme'd plenty of times, but instead of the fun and happy captions his camp was likely hoping for, the Internet focused on his past rape allegations that have been making headlines after Hannibal Buress' comedy show recently.

"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,'" the comedian said during a recent stand-up at Philadelphia's Trocadero Theatre. "Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches."

Here are a few examples of what the wonderful worldwide web came up with:

Others opted not to participate in the meme-making, but still expressed their feelings on the debacle via Twitter.

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.
