Actor-comedian Hannibal Buress has revealed that he received death threats after his now-viral Bill Cosby joke.

During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, the 32-year-old comedian said he was threatened after he brought up Cosby’s sexual assault allegations during his stand-up routine back in October, reported Ace Showbiz.

“It’s definitely a weird situation. I get a lot of messages from people about it,” Buresss said.

“You know, 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. Then having to hit your friend up and say, ‘Hey man, can you tell your buddy to stop saying that he’s gonna murder me?'” he added.
