Did Ebony Magazine Go Too Far With Their Latest Bill Cosby Cover?

They say “a man is innocent until proven guilty” but did Ebony Magazine just shade Bill Cosby? The cover of the November 2015 issue of the magazine shows a shattered image of what used to be the most loved old school Television family i.e The Cosby Show

In the excerpts of the cover story, editor; Goldie Taylor (who is probably the most popular chick right now) takes an in depth look into Bill Cosby’s rape allegations and how it has affected the image of the most loved fictional family.

She wrote…

“Cosby’s portrayal of Heathcliff Huxtable—a physician, loving husband and doting Black father-reinforced the widely held virtues of the nuclear family, if not also unwittingly illuminating the hazards of respectability politics (the notion that if Black people simply act “good” and “behave,” the world-at-large will treat them as such.)”

“Now, some three decades later, as Cosby stands accused of sexually assaulting at least 40 women, Black America is left to grapple with his once-unimpeachable legacy. If Bill Cosby is finished, what does that mean for Cliff, and the rest of the tribe called Huxtable?”

It seems Ebony Magazine wants our attention and I guess they have achieved their goal because many people have reacted to the cover story with mixed feelings check out some of the tweets below:
