Spike Lee Calls Out Bill Cosby Over School Daze


Spike Lee's second film, the cult classic School Daze, was trending on social media over the weekend after it was added to Netflix.

While he was trending Spike took the opportunity to point out that Bill Cosby stole his idea and turned it into the hit TV show 'A Different World...'


Fun Fact: School Daze cast members Jasmine Guy, Kadeem Hardison and Darry M. Bell went on to star in 'A Different World.'

I like Spike’s movies, but he should have said something when it happened or at least while Bill was on the outside. Ain’t much worse than kickin a dog when he’s down and out. And I ain’t even a fan of Bill Cosby with his drug-inducing raping ass.

^^Right..Spike dun turned into a bitter grumpy ass old man...FOH...the only similarity with a Different World & School Daze is HBCU colleges which Bill actually donated dollars. There was mininal conversations about colorism or fraternities ...Spike on one

He would have been blackballed if he said that then. Bill Cosby had lots of power. I always saw the correlation and thought it was done purposely.

Spike told no lies. School Daze is one of his best movies. It was the breakthrough roles for many of those actors. I never get tired of watching it and I loved the music.

Why does that matter...then or now. Everyone borrows ideas from one another. Its down all the time.

Good thing the series wasn't all about colorism. Cosby did introduce the black masses at large to the black bourgeoisie.

Uhm, I thought everyone knew that Different World was inspired by School Daze.

Well I guess he stole the idea of Grease if that's the case.

Cosign with Alma's Daughter.
9:44 AM Yes do tell? I hope that negro is not part of that satanic pedophile trafficking ring. I can't wait till they are exposed and brought to justice, including those vatican pedophiles.

Btw is Spike's ass wearing eleke's? if his ass is involved with that diabolical satanic pedophile ring, Ifa and them Orisha's is not going to save you. Don't let them raggedy ass babalow's take your money and lie to you. Hurting children is a crime against humanity, ancestors and great mother, those deities will never cosign that.

Spike accepted Bill Cosby's check when it was time to complete "Malcolm X", so I assume he's been over it and is just spilling old tea at this point.

Spike , really????

Bill Cosby waa the FIRST person you called to get a check to complete Malcom X when the movie went over budget.
You said yourself that you called Cosby asking for a Gift not a loan to finish the movie. Tje check was dropped off that day while you were in Cali and Cosby was in NY.
Really, Spike..really???

Ummm...A Different World came out before School Daze. That's how Kareem and Jasmine were already famous with the target audience. Spike is having memory lapses.
