Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby was slammed and mocked by social media users after tweeting a tribute to the late soul singer Aretha Franklin, who died Thursday at the age of 76.

Cosby, 81, tweeted his thanks to Franklin, who sang a song for the television sitcom “A Different World”, a spin-off of “The Cosby Show” that focused on Denise Huxtable played by Lisa Bonet.

“Aretha Franklin – I want to thank her for her beautiful voice sings the theme song of ‘Another World.’ They made a great, strong, positive influence on the series,” Cosby tweeted.

He said then that he would be playing Franklin’s music as he bid farewell to the “Queen of Soul.”

“I’m playing a cut from her CD, the title of the song is ‘all-Holy’ – and they live in a church. Bon Voyage … Bill Cosby in person,” Cosby continued.

Social media users fired back at the Cosby’s tribute, with the question of whether he should be in prison. In April, a jury found Cosby guilty of sexual abuse. He was convicted of drugging and molesting of the Temple University employee Andrea Constant in his Philadelphia home 14 years ago.
