Kanye West defends Bill Cosby and faces insane Internet backlash

If you’ve ever seen Kanye West on any public appearance, you know the man is not afraid to voice his opinions, and his attitude is no different when he’s tweeting. Last week, it was a 17-tweet rant about Wiz Khalifa, and this week he is proclaiming Bill Cosby’s innocence.
