Bill Cosby recently learned a hard lesson about crowdsourcing when his social media people decided to invite the 'Net to take images of Bill and turn them into memes.
Their site showed silly, and very gentle, examples of what they were looking for, but what they actually received was a torrent of rape accusations and bitter sarcasm in meme form.
Bill has been accused of multiple counts of rape, for which he has yet to have been found guilty, so why would his social media camp open him up to so much online heat?
My guess is they were trying to bring back that Cosby Show love and prove there's an audience for a new show, a gamble that backfired spectacularly, in other words in typical internet fashion.
So what's the lesson to be learned by Cosby's epic meme fail? Don't go fishing for compliments online, especially when you've got some (alleged) skeletons in your closet!
