The accusations that have been brought against famous comedian Bill Cosby have surely managed to damage the star’s career. In fact, it seems that Cosby might suffer even more damage when it comes to his shows, which have even brought protestors.
One of the latest shows of the star, which took place in Ohio, drew several protestors. The protestors came with signs reading “Respect women, rape is no joke.” Due to the protests that were held in other locations of the United States, as well, Cosby had to cancel some of his shows. In fact, many promoters decided to cancel the collaboration with the comedian, after the rape allegations were formulated against him.
However, if people protested outside, inside Cosby received standing ovations from the crowd. It seems that fans still appreciate the star and his talent. Bill Cosby was accused of sexually assaulting no less than 15 women. Most of the claims date decades ago. Bill Cosby denied all allegations and he has never been formally charged. However, the damage on his career and his image may never be repaired.
Roseanne Barr managed to create headlines in the past few days, claiming that she is not surprised at all with the allegations formulated against Cosby. “We’ve all heard it for a long time, and it surprises nobody,” she said. “Like every woman in Hollywood — there’s hardly any hairdressers or waitresses or working women who don’t know somebody… we all know women who know somebody if not [someone] who [went] through it themselves with Bill Cosby,” she added.
Barr claimed that she believes that the allegations formulated against Cosby are true, but it seems that she still sees a future for Cosby in entertainment. So, Barr appreciated the star as a comedian. “I have hopes for this great comic. I do. I have hopes that he would just make it clean, and make it, you know, make it right, and I do think he could do that,” she said.
Well, when it comes to the rape allegations, it is yet to see if something will be proven or Cosby is really innocent, as he has always claimed.
