Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby made a rare public appearance Sunday showing his support for the Philadelphia Eagles team while decked out in team gear, according to Fox News.
“Bill Cosby comes home to Philly to support the Eagles Chase For A Championship and stops by Velvet Sky Bakery & Cafe for Hot Chocolate and Cupcakes,” one of the pictures shared by the 80-year-old actor on Facebook read, along with a few shots of him out in public wearing an Eagles hat and jacket.

Earlier this month, “The Cosby Show” star told friends and a few reporters, while out to dinner in Philadelphia, that he wanted nothing to do with #MeToo movement. Cosby was accused by dozens of women of a variety of sexual misconduct allegations way before the bombshell exposes about decades-long sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein in October which sparked the #MeToo movement.

“Please, don’t put me on MeToo,” the disgraced actor told one of the reporters after the dinner, according to the Philadelphia Enquirer.
Cosby went to trial last year to deal with charges from one of his accusers. He faced charges of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia home in 2004.
In June, Judge Steven O’Neil declared a mistrial in the case after the jury remained “deadlocked on all counts” following six days of deliberations.
The sexual assault retrial has been set for April.
