Bill Cosbys legacy may not be around for much longer.
On Thursday afternoon, Bounce TV announced it would be pulling “The Cosby Show” from its network entirely. This decision comes as Bill Cosby was just found guilty on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault on Thursday.
“Effective immediately, Bounce is removing The Cosby Show from our schedule,” Bounce TV announced in a statement on Thursday afternoon.

According to its official website, Bounce TV “is the first African American broadcast network.” It was founded by prominent African American activists Andrew Young and Martin Luther King III.
Cosby caused quite a scene in court on Thursday afternoon. After he was found guilty, Cosby reportedly cussed at the district attorney and referred to himself in the third person.
Bill Cosby just called the DA an asshole in court, while discussing whether bail should be revoked, per @CDFrancescani.
DA expressed fear Cosby is a flight risk.
Judge asked to where.
DA: To any place, he has a plane!
Cosby, screamed: He doesnt have a plane you asshole!
