Approaching a year since coverage began on the sexual allegations involving Bill Cosby, Ebony Magazine has now expressed their feelings about the ordeal. For the cover of their November issue, The Cosby Show family photo is edited with shattered glass over the cast symbolizing a “broken legacy”? Now for some the cover’s message is understood while others appear offended that Ebony would print such an image.
Ebony Magazine sparked outrage with readers after releasing the cover of their November issue which featured a fractured image of “The Cosby Show” cast for a story on broken families in the African American community. The front page came just days after Cosby gave a deposition in Boston for a sexual battery civil lawsuit filed in Los Angeles. – NYDailyNews
Of course thanks to Twitter, we were able to see a series of readers respond to the new cover. Some went on to point out that the artwork was unfair to the cast of the show.
But ebony magazine cover is out of line all the way, don’t discredit the Cosby show

Ebony is just showing everyone that the Magazine industry is dead. Cosby cover is about getting attention. The cast didn’t commit a crime.

It’s amazing that people are upset with EBONY magazine. Bill Cosby the living man is NOT Cliff Huxtable the fictional character

Bill Cosby has yet to be convicted on any of the current allegations.
