Bill Cosby, who is being targeted by planned protests this Saturday before and during his Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre performance, sent out a video message this morning to his fans.
It’s only 19 seconds long and he does not allude to or address any of the allegations by more than 40 women accusing him of sexual assault.
“I’m going to perform because I love it when you laugh,” Cosby said. “I love it when you smile. I love it! Cobb Energy Arts Centre 8 p.m.” He then rolls his eyes up with a smile.
He has cancelled and postponed several shows since the allegations came fast and furious last fall. The Cobb show appears to be the only active date left on his current schedule.
UPDATE, Friday, May 1, 2015: Gloria Allred brought out two more women who allege they were attacked by Cosby, including a guest star of “The Cosby Show.” At a press conference in New York City Friday, actor Lili Bernard said she was drugged and raped by Cosby in the early 1990s, a story that sounded all too familiar to dozens of other women offering similar stories. Writer Sammie Mays also said she had been drugged and assaulted by Cosby in the late 1980s. Details here.
