Finally, Bill Cosby decided to talk about his career. The famous comedian was accused of rape and sexual harassment, but the star made no mention about these allegations. He actually told fans that his career is far away from ending. Naturally, the comments were made in relation to these allegations, which affected the famous comedian’s image and career.
The message that the 77 year old comedian filmed for fans was aired on ABC’s Good Morning America. Apparently, the star wanted to let fans know that he is “far from finished.” “Yes, I’m going to be in Wheeling, West Virginia, Capitol Music Hall. 8 o’clock show, that’s right. You know I’ll be hilarious. Can’t wait,” the comedian said in his video.
“Dear Fans: I hope you enjoy my wonderful video message that’s filled with laughter. Hey, hey, hey – I’m far from finished,” his message added. While the star focused on his career, he made absolutely no mention on the accusations that have been made against him, saying that he abused over 20 women.
As Cosby has not been charged in relation with these allegations, the star continues to make his successful show. In fact, in one of his shows he actually made fun of this whole situation. However, this does not mean that Cosby has not met protestors at his shows.
Actually a similar event happened at that particular show when Cosby made the joke. Two men were ejected from the audience, after they verbally attacked Cosby. “We don’t love you, Bill!” one of the man claimed. “You are a rapist. I’m being ejected because you are a rapist.”
During his video message, Bill Cosby also praised actor Eddy Murphy, as he refused to talk about the subject. Other stars even came to his defense. Vivica A. Fox claimed that the famous comedian has always been a nice, kind person. “There was no sexual overtones or anything, so I defend him and I stand by him as well, too.”
So, as the charges against Bill Cosby are yet to be proven, the comedian continues his career and is determined to not let these accusations stand between him and his comedic shows.
