Cosby, 78, was arrested in December and charged with aggravated indecent assault for the alleged drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand, an employee at Temple University in Philadelphia.

The comedian is also embroiled in several lawsuits with women who claim he drugged them and sexually assaulted them.

Many of West’s fans have called for him to de-activate his Twitter account after the controversial tweet, the latest in a string of bizarre social media behaviour from the star.

Others have suggested it could also be a bid for publicity given West is preparing to release a new album next week.
