Through his attorney, Bill Cosby has denied the numerous allegations of rape made against him by over a dozen women.
On November 6, however, Cosby had the opportunity to address these disturbing charges himself when he sat across from a reporter from The Associated Press.
When the reporter brought up the accusations of sexual assault, Cosby quickly shot him with by saying "we don’t answer that."
Pressed on the topic, Cosby (who was sitting alongside his wife, Camille) again refused to offer any kind of firm response, telling the journalist:
"There is no comment about that and 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."
But then Cosby made repeated overtures – to both the reporter and his producer – that his No Comment be edited out of the interview.
"I would appreciate it if it was scuttled," Cosby says of that portion of the Q&A. "I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious, that it will not appear anywhere."
It’s an uncomfortable exchange and Cosby’s request that no one ever see his non-answer is far more damning than the non-answer itself. You can watch the entire segment in the video above.
Bill Cosby is accused of drugging, groping and raping many women, most of whom allege these incidents took place in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Janice Dickinson has come out and claimed she was also a victim of Cosby’s, recently saying the comedian took advantage of her in Lake Tahoe in 1982.
In response to this scandal, Netflix has postponed a stand-up special featuring Cosby and NBC has scrapped plans to air a new sitcom starring the actor.
