"He gets on TV (and says), ' 'Pull your pants up black people, I was 
on TV in the '80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful 
sitcom!' Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down 
a couple notches."

Hannibal Buress, circa Oct. 15.

I do not have the exact date, nor an authorized transcript.  (And no 
video, because my computer is presently voiceless.)  The above is 
from the NY Daily News, Oct 21 (on-line).  Other quotations 
differ.  Perhaps because Buress varied his text during different performances?
