As famously captured on video by The Associated Press, Bill Cosby refuses to address rumors that he sexually assaulted well over a dozen women, many of whom have come forward in recent weeks and charged the comedian with heinous crimes.
But the comedian has broken his silence on the issue at least a little bit today, taking to Twitter in order to thank a pair of celebrity supporters.
First, Cosby simply wrote "Thank you @WhoopiGoldberg," responding about two weeks after Whoopi Goldberg stood up for the sitcom star on The View.
“Perhaps the police might have believed [the allegation], or the hospital. Don’t you do a kit when you say someone has raped you? Goldberg asked on November 17, adding:
"I hope somebody gets to the bottom of this, but I’m going to reserve my judgment because I have a lot of questions, as I said. It’s crazy, but I have a lot of questions, because I know we all have friends who have gone through this.”
Cosby – who has now been sued by Judy Huth, a woman who alleges he assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion when she was only 15 years old – also referenced Jill Scott in a Tweet.
A day after Scott defended Cosby against Twitter followers, the troubled star wrote: "Thank you @MissJillScott, from the Cosby Family."
In an extended debate with Internet users yesterday, Scott referred to the allegations against Cosby as "insane" and said she’ll continue to respect a man who has helped boost the image African-Americans until actual proof prompts her otherwise.
The former Cosby Show star did not show gratitude to Glenn Beck, it should be noted, despite that reporter also sticking up for him.
Perhaps that’s because Beckett has said the media raped Bill Cosby.
