(NEWSER) – The most unpopular Father’s Day tweet over the weekend surely belongs to none other than Bill Cosby, one in which the imprisoned comedian refers to himself as “America’s Dad.” It appears that Cosby’s representatives put it up at his request, reports USA Today. “Hey, Hey, Hey…It’s America’s Dad…I know it’s late, but to all of the Dads… It’s an honor to be called a Father, so let’s make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our purpose—strengthening our families and communities,” it reads. Cosby is currently serving time in Pennsylvania after being convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004.
