When it comes to award show jokes, almost nothing is off limits. Even controversial topics manage to find their way into hilarious monologues. As always, there were a lot of tasteless jokes at the Emmys, including host Jimmy Kimmel speculating that the show “Transparent” was born as a drama but “identified” as a comedy. However the one that was in much poorer taste came when Kimmel announced that alleged rapist Bill Cosby was coming out onstage. Boy, did THAT kill the mood. The room fell silent with a few rumblings of confusion and dropped jaws.
The shocked look on Tina Fey’s face says it all.
