Hannibal Buress Is Getting Bill Cosby-Related Death Threats: "It's a Weird Situation" (Video)
Jimmy Kimmel spoke to Hannibal Buress on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night, asking the comedian how it felt to be the person to kick-start the backlash against Bill Cosby.
"It's definitely a weird situation — I get a lot of messages about it," Buress said during the episode, which was filmed in Austin. "The weirdest thing about getting a death threat from a male bodybuilder slash stripper on Facebook is when you click on his profile and see that you have one mutual friend."
"Having to hit your friend up and saying, 'Hey man, can you tell your buddy to stop saying that he's gonna murder me?'" he continued. "I didn't really think he was gonna kill me, I just rather not take that information into my head if I have to."
The interview, in which Buress also discusses his involvement in the Justin Bieber roast, can be seen below.
