Threats Over His Bill Cosby Comments
The "Broad City" star says he's received death threats since the controversy blew up.

"It's definitely a weird situation," Buress said. "I get a lot of messages from people about it. You know, the weirdest thing about getting a death threat from a male bodybuilder.
' I didn't really think he was gonna kill me, I'd just rather not take that information into my head if I didn't have to."
Buress blew the top off the scandal during a performance in Philadelphia last year when he mentioned the sexual assault claims against Cosby from years ago.
Video of Buress' bit went viral and new attention was brought to the matter as more than two dozen women came forward with new allegations.
Cosby has never been formally charged with sexual assault, but is currently involved in a defamation lawsuit from three accusers.
