Even though Bill Cosby is presently behind bars, the disgraced comedian and TV personality managed to get a message out on social media in time for Father’s Day.

Yesterday, a post from Cosby’s Twitter account went live, stating: “Hey, Hey, Hey...It’s America’s Dad… I know it’s late, but to all of the Dads... It’s an honor to be called a Father, so let’s make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our purpose—strengthening our families and communities.”

The message included an old video of Cosby talking about racism, along with the hashtags #HappyFathersDay, #FarFromFinished, and #RenewedOathToOurFamily.

According to multiple sources, Cosby sent the tweet by way of his representative, Andrew Wyatt.

Wyatt said it was part of Cosby wanting to support a group called Man Up. He also reportedly wrote later, “Mr. Cosby’s [message] consisted of telling these men who have been incarcerated for many years, but are up for parole soon ... to ... take the word ‘disadvantage’ and remove the ‘dis,’ and start focusing on the advantage. That advantage is to be better fathers and productive citizens and to remember Never Again, which means, Never Again should you enter the gates to this plantation, because this is the new form of slavery.”

Cosby was convicted in April 2018 for the 2004 drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand, who had been the basketball administrator of Temple University. He is presently serving 3 to 10 years in Pennsylvania, and is reportedly in the process of appealing his conviction.
