Bill Cosby Calls Himself ‘America’s Dad’ in Father’s Day Instagram Post – It Doesn’t Go Over Great

Father’s Day was celebrated by many on Sunday, including the incarcerated Bill Cosby, who called himself “America’s Dad” in an Instagram post. That label — and the message in general — wasn’t received so well by several users.

“Hey, Hey, Hey…It’s America’s Dad…I know it’s late, but to all of the Dads… It’s an honor to be called a Father, so let’s make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our purpose — strengthening our families and communities,” Cosby’s post read.

It also includes an old clip of the now-disgraced “Cosby Show” star talking about the history of slavery and racism in America.

Andrew Wyatt, a spokesperson for Cosby, told TheWrap on Monday that his client asked a Father’s Day message be posted from him on social media in support of a group called Man Up.
