It seems Bill Cosby is a bit bitter about his actions coming back to bite him.

Jezebel reports that the disgraced comedian lashed out at District Attorney Kevin Steele after Steele requested that Cosby’s bail be revoked following the jury’s guilty verdict. 

On Thursday, Cosby was found guilty on three counts of sexual assault after more than half a dozen women testified that the comedian drugged and raped them. 

Following the verdict, Steele argued that Cosby could be a possible flight risk, listing the comedian’s many resources  — including a private jet. The comments prompted Cosby to shout, “He doesn’t have a plane, you asshole!” The “He” Cosby was referring to was himself.

Ultimately, Judge Steven O’Neill denied the request to revoke Cosby’s bail, adding that the comedian’s bail was already high and he had not missed a single court appearance.

Cosby faces up to 30 years in jail and a $25,000 fine for each count.
