Those Bill Cosby rape allegations from 10 years ago came back in a big way last month when a video of comedian Hannibal Buress dragging Pepaw Pudding Pop in his act made the rounds. A thousand blog posts were born from it, one of his accusers told her story and Twitter got into it by giving us a meme that made us laugh until we cried in a hot epsom salt bath. Bill Cosby has kept his mouth shut about the allegations (one of which was settled for $$$ a while ago) and has been avoiding any talk about it. He hit the cancel button on an appearance on Queen Latifah’s show, dropped out of an interview with David Letterman and while talking to NPR’s “Weekend Edition” about the works of art he and his wife are lending to the National Museum of African Art, he shook his head no when host Scott Simon brought up the allegations.
If Bill Cosby could, he’d roofie all the talk about the allegations and make it go away. But since he can’t and everyone keeps talking about it, his lawyer shat up a statement where he used the line I use whenever someone asks me why I worship a “gross douche” like Carrot Top. His lawyer used the “I will not dignity that with a response” line.
Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment. He would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives.
What “work” is Bill’s lawyer talking about? I know he’s supposedly working on a new show for NBC, but besides that, what “new work” has he put out? Speaking of work, Bill Cosby busting out a SMH when asked a serious, relevant question is his PR team’s WORST work. They had to have known that question was coming and instead of feeding him a pre-written answer, they let him shake his head no as though a server just asked him if he’d like a side salad with his entree. Saying “I’ll answer that as soon as I get you a drink, Scott” or “Shut the fuck up about that” would’ve been a better way to respond than the way Bill Cosby responded. Actually, Bill Cosby would never say “shut the fuck up” since he is anti-cursing, which is why I forever can’t with him.
