Carry on my legacy, motherfucker.

Another voice has been added to the chorus of people denouncing Bill Cosby, this time with an insider perspective: Jennifer Lee Pryor, Richard Pryor's widow.
Lee was appearing on the Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend podcast to talk about Pryor, his legacy, and her involvement in his upcoming biopic. Pryor had known Cosby since they were starting out as young comics, and the two didn't exactly have a friendly relationship. Considering that, as well as the allegations that continue to pile up against Cosby, it's no surprise that Lee didn't hold back with her words:
“Richard was dirty on the outside, but he was a good person on the inside. Bill, he hated Richard because he 'worked dirty'. Bill worked clean, so therefore, you know—Bill's just a fucking hypocrite, and dirty on the inside…. It was a well-kept secret that Bill fucked everything that moved. [But] this kind of shit that we're finding out about is beyond—I mean, I wasn't aware of this kind of business."
Lee added, "He's done… he's a piece of shit."
Well said indeed.
