The Death of Cliff Huxtable

Posted By: Amarachi Adaora Ede on June 30, 2020

Good evening My name is Amarachi Adaora Ede I’m working as the publicist for Diva Blue Productions.

As with many of you, “The Cosby Show” was an essential part of my formative years. Nearly all of Bill Cosby’s work has a home in the DNA of my growth and education, inspiring my approach to the arts and academia. So when the allegations of **** misconduct, **** harassment, and **** came pouring out, I experienced the most jarring case of cognitive dissonance. On the one hand, here is this work I love and have no way of “unloving” it. On the other, the work’s creator is a **** predator. Because I believe women and have **** **** in my past, there is NO WAY I can support this man. Just as we’ve seen with R. Kelly, there was a melding of art and creator, to craft a whole new person folks felt they HAD to defend. This led to many people’s inability to see that two things can be separate, even the opposite, and can be true. The one truth that was still so hard to accept, that it even created arguments, is that while Bill Cosby may have gained the moniker of “America’s Dad,” he is not YOUR dad…and neither is Cliff Huxtable. Cliff Huxtable is no more your father than Max Headroom. To prove this, I decide to “****” Cliff Huxtable.




Writing “The Death Of Cliff Huxtable…So We Can Survive Bill Cosby” was less about preaching to people that they should stop supporting Bill Cosby and more about taking over a story and characters…a family, left to survive Cosby’s ****. I wanted to take the wonderfully penned people, better known as the Huxtable family, and give them a current perspective the felt relevant, connecting them closer to us. I also wanted them to grieve the end of innocence for the Huxtable patriarch because no matter what, Cliff will never be absolved of Bill’s crimes. Cliff will forever pay for Bill’s crimes. So…I **** him…to show that Cliff isn’t Bill. He’s simply “drawn that way.”



SO then, here we are. Quarantined. Waiting out sickness. Waiting out fear and despair. Waiting for a return to normalcy that may never come. We turn to art. We turn to community. We turn to stories. We turn to each other…even from a distance. Let’s take the next seven weeks to talk about healing and emotions and family and rage and love and laughter and memories and kindness…and The Huxtables.
