Bill Cosby Dodges Questions About Sexual Assault Accusers on Good Morning America: 'I've Never Seen Anything Like This'
The comedian gave rambling answers when asked about the more than 40 women who've accused him of sexual assault
The actor, 77, was ostensibly on the morning show to speak about his partnership with the Black Belt Community Foundation. Cosby visited Alabama on Thursday and Friday to speak to high school students as part of the foundation’s campaign to improve education in the state.
But his philanthropy work was overshadowed by the growing number of allegations.
When asked what he would tell children who might ask him about the accusations, Cosby said: “I’m not sure that they will come like that. I think that many of them will say, ‘Well you’re a hypocrite, you say one thing, you say the other.’ My point is, listen to me carefully, I’m telling you where the road is out. You wanna be here, or you wanna be concerned about who is giving you the message.”
He went on to say that he’s never seen a showbiz figure treated the way he’s been treated. “I have been in this business 52 years and I’ve never seen anything like this,” Cosby added. “Reality is the situation and I can’t speak.”
And when questioned about his future, Cosby simply responded: “I really know about what I’m going to do tomorrow. I have a ton of ideas to put on television about people and their love for each other.”
