Bill Cosby and his team did not pick the optimal time to start a social media campaign, given that his past rape allegations have flooded the media over the last few weeks. Last night, the actor posted a meme of himself on Twitter with the caption: “Go ahead. Meme me!” inviting followers to create their own memes using #CosbyMeme. In about no time, he received major backlash as the effort his team thought would be fun and games quickly turned into nasty jokes and criticism, eventually getting deleted altogether.

Rudy Huxtable Steals The Show At The TV Land Awards

It’s no secret that Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show and who we thought would make a great best friend, has grown into a gorgeous woman. Pulliam showed her grown up side in Chingy’s video for “One Call Away” a couple years ago and it was a far cry away from the little Rudy we knew and loved, and she certainly looked gorgeous on the red carpet of the TV Land Awards last night as well. Check out some of our most favorite television stars from The Cosby Show, Family Ties, and The Facts of Life, who were all honored with awards last night at the ceremony in New York City. Everyone seems to have aged pretty well, but no one’s as hot as Keshia. (Sorry, Abe Vigoda.)

The awards will air on April 17th at 9pm ET on TV Land.
