This is long, long overdue, but the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — the Oscars people — just finally booted legendary scumbags Roman Polanski and Bill Cosby:
BREAKING: Oscars organization votes to expel Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski from its membership.

JUST IN: Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors votes to expel Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski.

But what took them so long?
Roman Polanski was first accused of raping a 13-year-old 41 years ago.
Say what u will about the Oscars, but they sure are swift with the justice ? https://t.co/0YtqPB2qgw

And we like how they used Cosby to finally take action on Academy favorite Polanski:
I like how they slipped Roman Polanski in there, thinking we won’t notice. Way to take immediate action…decades in the making. https://t.co/RJGr582zzn

This is 40 years late for Polanski. Great timing by the Academy. ?

NOW they expel Polanski?
Why? Because they didn't want to look racist for only expelling Cosby?
Polanski should have been expelled decades ago. https://t.co/Jjg3DKgiIn

Prediction: They’ll find a way to give Polanski another Oscar:
I feel for the Academy. they tried so hard to make Polanski go away by throwing gold statues at him, and at last it's come to this https://t.co/ZDv9pI8ONT
