Kanye West and Twitter are a dangerous combination.
Just a couple of weeks after the 36-year-old headline-making ranted against rapper Wiz Khalifa and ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, he’s again taken to his keyboard.
He tweeted, “BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!!”
This deeply unpopular sentiment may have been prompted by a court throwing out a defamation suit against embattled comedian Cosby, 78, by former model Janice Dickinson, 60.
He accused her of fabricating a story in an interview from 2014 that he had drugged and raped her in 1982.
Those claims have been echoed by more than 40 other women, including actors, models, and musicians.
Dickinson’s complaint against Cosby for sexual assault is still going ahead.
Prominent feminist writer and commentator Roxane Gay responded to West’s tweet.
Stop Kanye. This is not a good look. @kanyewest

We concur. It’s unlikely that even skilled diplomat Kim Kardashian can fix this one.
