Once again the legendary comedian decided not to comment on the allegations, but this time it was caught on tape, and you can see Bill Cosby refusing to answer the questions, then almost begging the reporters and producers not to air the footage.
“There is no comment about that. I’ll tell you why. I think you were told I don’t want to compromise your integrity, but I don’t talk about it. Can I get something from you. That none of that would be shown.”
The AP reporter conducting the interview did tell Cosby and his wife he couldn’t promise that the footage wouldn’t be used, to which Cosby replied:
“I think that if you want to consider yourself to be serious that it would not appear anywhere.”
As you can see the AP released the footage anyway.
Cosby has lost his Netflix deal, NBC pulled his new sitcom that was to air next year, and TV Land pulled reruns of “The Cosby Show” from their lineup as well.
That might hurt the pockets of some of the other actors on the show. Speaking of actors on “The Cosby Show,” Raven Symone was thrown in the middle of the rape allegations when a hip hop gossip parody / satire website posted a story saying she was one of Bill Cosby’s alleged victims. The NY Daily News reports:
A fake news site posted a story this week alleging that the actress had filed molestation charges against Cosby when both appeared on “The Cosby Show.” The article claimed the incident occurred after the 1992 series finale, when she would have been around 6 years old.
Raven took to Instagram to blast the story saying thats not funny:
It will be interesting what is to come of Bill Cosby after this portion of his life.
