Us Weekly reports that while America’s former favorite dad was performing in London, Ontario last night, he made a joke about the rape allegations that have been coming at him from left, right, and center. According to reports, the comedian paused his routine when a female audience member got up to get a drink from the bar and even offered to buy the star another one – and it all went downhill from there. Says Us Weekly:
Cosby reportedly replied, “I already have one,” gesturing to his bottle of water. “You have to be careful about drinking around me,” he added. His quip elicited gasps from the crowd, which quickly became cheers and laughter. Despite the positive reactions from most of the audience, Cosby was heckled by one male non-fan, who yelled at the stage during a different part of the show, “We don’t love you Bill!”
The man and his friend were ejected from the venue and the former Cosby Show legend later on issued a statement through his publicist:
“Dear Fans: One outburst but over 2600 loyal, patient and courageous fans enjoyed the most wonderful medicine that exist for human-kind. Laughter. I thank you, the theatre staff (Budweiser Gardens), the event organizers and the London, ON Community for your continued honor and support. I’m Far From Finished.”
Most recently, three more women joined the lawsuit accusing Cosby of sexual misconduct.
