Bill Cosby has received an onslaught of negative press after the re-emergence of rαpe allegations, and he hasn’t been quick to address the accusations. As a consequence, Cosby’s appearance on David Letterman’s show was recently canceled, and during an interview with NPR, Cosby went silent instead of addressing the charges. Now, however, Cosby’s attorney is speaking out on the allegations.
During Cosby’s NPR appearance, the comedian just shook his head when asked about the allegations. He didn’t address the allegations, published in the Washington Post, of one women who said she was drugged and rαped by the beloved comedian.
Cosby’s lawyer, John P. Schmidt, said in a statement posted on the comedian’s website that his client would not be addressing the charges.
“Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced,” the statement said.
“The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment,” the statement continues.
