Bill Cosby Portrait in 'Rapeseed' Pulled From State Fair
"It took Nick Rindo just a few hours to throw together a crop art portrait of Bill Cosby. The medium: canola seeds -- a variant of which is also known as rapeseed.
It took just a day for the State Fair to give it the boot.
After a flurry of complaints by fairgoers about the subject matter and taste, the portrait of the comedian who has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting dozens of women -- was pulled from the Agriculture Horticulture Building."
At first the organizers of the State Fair put a piece of tape over the word `rapeseed,` saying the preferred term is `canola,` but by the end of the day they removed the Cosby portrait because of numerous complaints by fairgoers.
Rapeseed is the proper medium for creating a portrait of a vile monster who has raped well over 50 women over decades.
If rapeseed is too politically-incorrect of a material to create a Cosby portrait, I suggest that an artist create a new Cosby portrait using dung.
I`m not surprised that the Cosby portrait was taken down after only a day; people are sick and tired of the disgraced comic. He needs to disappear completely from popular culture, shame on those who are keeping his memory alive by attending his lectures or comedy performances.
