Bill Cosby has now publicly spoken out on the multiple allegations of sexual assault that have been made against him, in an interview with ABC News.

“It’s interesting. When I talk to people they will say, ‘This is a situation that’s unprecedented,’” Cosby can be heard saying in a sneak peek aired Friday on Good Morning America. “I, my family, my friends… I have been in this business 52 years. I’ve never seen anything like this. And reality is the situation… And I… I can’t speak.”

Cosby also described his response to people who bring up the allegations in front of him — and how he stops that conversation when they do: “My point is, ‘OK, listen to me carefully. I’m telling you where the road is out. I’m telling you where, as you drive, you are going to go into the water. Now, you want to go here or you want to be concerned about who is giving you the message?’”

Cosby has been accused by more than 30 women of sexual assault. He has never been officially charged with any crime.

    I haven’t seen any thing like it either. Really Cosby, thirty different people. If you did nothing wrong, why do these thirty women hate you. At least react.

      Gee, you’re right, and all those people that got tortured and burned and stoned and killed were accused by people so they were witches, damn the facts, what do facts matter?

      They matter a fuckton to me.

      Grow a pair and consider he *hasn’t* been charged with rape, just accused. With thirty different accusers, at least one should have ostensibly stepped out of shame and anonymity to damn well press charges.

      Until then, until charges are laid and any cases laid out and considered, I do not know if he raped or did not rape–and neither do you.

        I ask a question. I didn’t say I knew anything. I do know that statute of limitations are in affect for most of these. It is not over yet. If he is innocent, he should sue at least one of them for defamation of character. With 30 people involved, kinda have to scratch your head. Don’t ya?

    Its all about the money. If there was an ounce of truth, there would be charges. TRUE, some of the allegations have “expired” but not all of them and yet not a single case has been followed by criminal charges… most likely because there’s nothing to the stories. This is bad on two fronts,

    First, it smears a reputation and destroys this man’s entire career.

    SECOND, AND MORE IMPORTANT, it tends to work againt REAL sexual assault victims by painting them with the same brush as these money-hungry harpies.

    There has been enough time between accusation and now to have investigated, charged and tried numerous cases. The lack of action speaks volumes!

      No one is asking for any money.

        They don’t have to. Media attention, book deals, Notoriety in general.

        Lorena Bobbit did what she did.. and men wanting to prove their cojones swarmed her hairdressing practice.

        • Carolyn1520

          Not exactly what most people would want to be known for. To date, I’ve seen no exchange of money in the way of book deals or in any other way. Considering the media attention in such cases usually brings out those who think the woman or women in question either made it up, had it coming or consented, it’s generally the reason many never speak out or wait decades to do so.

          As I recall the male who was the recipient of Lorena Bobbitt’s wrath was the one who capitalized on his misfortune.

    Why isn’t he denying it.

    And the chicken heart grew, bump bump, bump bump…

    Cosby was an absolute powerhouse in TV. To accuse him when he was in his prime would have destroyed an actress’s chance at a career. So silence reigned. Now that someone has “brought forth” her version of events, others have been able to follow suit.
    These women do not belong to the same social club, some are actresses, some singers, others ?. That they all come up with stories that are remarkably similar is certainly interesting.
    Liking a man’s great body of work is not the same as that man being personally great, or even moral. (Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, et. al.)
