Bill Cosby is celebrating his 82nd birthday behind bars by quoting the Bible — and urging others to “man up & become men of valor.”
Social media accounts for the comedian-turned-convicted sex offender blasted out the head-scratching message Friday morning.
“I would like to thank all of my friends, supporters and family members for wishing me a Happy 82nd Birthday,” the post said.
It goes on to claim that Cosby’s fellow inmates at SCI Phoenix, a maximum-security lockup in Pennsylvania, have asked him, “Mr. Cosby – is there anything special you would like for your birthday?”
“I politely replied that the greatest present for me is: 1 Corinthians 13:11 — When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
The message, which includes a photo of the fallen funnyman, ends with, “To all men… it’s a time to be Great Fathers, Great American Citizens & Great Husbands. Man Up & Become Men of Valor.”
It’s unclear who penned the post.
Cosby is serving a three- to 10-year sentence after a jury found him guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.
The former Pudding Pop pitchman — who has been accused of similar behavior by dozens of other women — was also designated a sexually violent predator and must register as a sex offender upon release.
He has appealed the conviction.
