Bill Cosby wanted fans to mark his 80th birthday by doing “something kind”– but internet trolls quickly pointed out that the disgraced comedian was asking the public to do as he says, not as he apparently does.

“I will! I’ll avoid drugging and raping dozens of women,” one userwrote, while another questioned his definition of the word “kind,”writing, “Is knocking somebody out and raping them considered nice?”

Cosby, currently embroiled in a sex assault case that spans decades after multiple women accused him of drugging and raping them, also offered up a thank-you to his supporters, and that wasn’t received any better.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of my friends and supporters for wishing me a Happy 80th Brithday!” he wrote.

“Almost as many victims as birthdays!” one user responded.

Another aimed a scathing zinger at the no-longer funnyman, writing, “From the bottom of your heart to the bottom of your victims spiked cocktail glass.”
