Bill Cosby Under Fire … Again

The legendary comedian faces renewed outrage over claims that he drugged and sexually assaulted 14 women years ago

Pressure is building on Bill Cosby. First, comedian Hannibal Buress called him a “rapist” during an October gig, and then, on Nov. 13, actress Barbara Bowman—who claims she was assaulted by Cosby in 1985—published a damning op-ed in the Washington Post, noting, “The women victimized by Bill Cosby have been talking about his crimes for … a decade.” She’s referring to allegations from 14 women that surfaced in 2005 after Andrea Constand, then 32, went to police saying Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her. No criminal charges were filed, and Constand settled a civil suit. In light of the new headlines, Cosby postponed an appearance on Queen Latifah, and an upcoming Letterman booking was canceled. Why is the scandal sticking around? “It’s the fact that he won’t apologize,” Tamara Green, 66, one Cosby accuser, tells People. On Nov. 16 Cosby’s attorney released a statement saying the entertainer would not dignify “discredited” claims with a comment (then released another saying he wasn’t referring to Constand).

Why I Care


Sheryl Crow

The singer volunteers at food banks—and is hosting an auction—for Feeding America

When I moved to Nashville, my family and I started visiting the food bank. On our first trip, my son and I sat down next to a man. Someone gave him a pair of boots. My son Wyatt said, “Why did he give you boots?” And the man said, “Cause I didn’t have any boots.” And my son said, “Why don’t you have any boots?” And he said, “Cause I can’t get a job.” And my son said, “Why can’t you get a job?” And the man said, “Cause I don’t have any boots.” For three weeks my son talked about that experience, of not understanding that having food and a job for some people is a real luxury. So we stuff boxes, we serve meals. And this year I’m auctioning off clothes, boots, handbags—everything that’s in my closet that no longer gets used is going to go on eBay’s Charity Shop through Dec. 11, and the money goes toward Feeding America. I’ve been blessed in so many ways. This is our way of being grateful, to be a part of helping people get on their feet.
