Bill has a message to the public as he celebrates his birthday behind bars.
Despite being behind bars, Bill Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, has stated that the disgraced TV host is . This indeed seemed to be the case with news from this past weekend that the Mr. Huxtable actor is reportedly living his best, health-conscious life in prison, taking to working out and eating right, even managing to shed 40 pounds! On this day, he celebrates his 82nd birthday, and he’s taken to releasing a statement to commemorate the occasion, through his social media accounts. The ironic message not only quotes the bible, but also urges others to “man up & become men of valor.”
“I would like to thank all of my friends, supporters and family members for wishing me a Happy 82nd Birthday,” the post starts. It continues on to explain how his fellow inmates at SCI Phoenix – a maximum-security lockup in Pennsylvania – asked him if he would like “anything special” for his birthday. “I politely replied that the greatest present for me is: 1 Corinthians 13:11″ he says, introducing the bible verse he goes on to quote. “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” He then directly adresses “all men” saying: “it’s a time to be Great Fathers, Great American Citizens & Great Husbands. Man Up & Become Men of Valor.” I mean, hey, a lot of people do tend to gain at least some enlightenment during their time behind bars – maybe the same can be said for the fallen actor and host.
