No matter if Bill Cosby is guilty or not, the rape allegations that have been linked to his name have definitely seriously impacted his career. The scandal is without a doubt huge, as more than 20 women have accused the famous comedian of abuse. Cosby has always claimed that he is innocent, even though the accusations are strong.
Bill Cosby talked about these allegations at the middle of December, saying once again that he is innocent. “Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind,” Bill Cosby said in an interview. Apparently, the star decided to break the silence. Bill Cosby claimed that he decided to reveal nothing about this case, as he was advised to not talk about it with the media.
During the interview, Cosby was asked what does his wife, Camille, say about these allegations. It seems that the comedian is certain that his wife stands by him. He claimed that he has her full support and she knows that he is innocent. “Love and the strength of womanhood,” he said. “Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love.”
More than two dozen women accused Bill Cosby of drugging and raping them. All the cases seem to be similar in the way in which Cosby acted and they all date back to the 1960s and 1970s. Cosby avoided to directly talk about these cases, as it seems that the star’s legal team thinks it is better to stay quiet.
Bill Cosby remains best known for playing the role of Dr. Cliff Huxtable in The Cosby Show, between 1984 and 1992. The first accusations on the star date back to 2005, although Cosby has never been criminally charged. It is yet to see what will happen next for the famous comedian. However, it is now said that even if all the charges will be cleared, the star’s career has suffered a huge damage.
