Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being “Raped” By His Accusers’ Allegations

Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being Raped By His Accusers' Allegations

This Saturday, entertainment blog The Wrap posted a stunningly tone-deaf guest op-ed entitled “The Rape of Bill Cosby.” The tongue-in-cheek opening line read “Bill Cosby raped me.” And that was the best part of the entire debacle. The remainder of the piece, which was meant to be an excoriation of liberal media (on a liberal media site no less – gotta love life’s rich pageant), has instead become Exhibit A in the case of The Wrap engendering rape culture, and it is a steaming pile of gross, triggering garbage.

Bill Cosby: “People Should Fact Check”

Bill Cosby Refuses To Respond To Rape Allegations As Another Alleged Victim Comes Forward

“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”

Yesterday, alleged serial rapist Bill Cosby finally “broke his silence” about the controversy surrounding him in an interview with Florida Today. Well, here’s a depressing fact: 17 women as of this posting have come forward alleging Cosby raped and/or sexually assaulted them and yet only two dozen ticket holders decided to skip his show last night in Melbourne, Florida. The remaining attendees gave Cosby two standing ovations. [NY Times]

Footage From 2012 Marilyn Manson Music Video, Showing Lana Del Rey Being Raped By Eli Roth, Leaks Online

Back in 2012, Marilyn Manson filmed a music video for his song “No Reflection,” which included a scene in which “Hostel” director Eli Roth pins down singer Lana del Rey and rapes her. The scene was cut from the final video, but there have been whispers online about the original footage ever since. Eli Roth even commented on the disturbing scene when he sat down with Larry King in October 2013, saying, “The footage is so sick, it’s been locked in a vault for over a year.” And now that footage has leaked online, as part of a reel for Sturmgruppe, a Los Angeles-based digital art group that’s worked with Manson.

Janice Dickinson Said “Bill Cosby Preys On Women” During 2006 Howard Stern Interview

This morning, I told you that supermodel Janice Dickinson told “Entertainment Tonight” that Bill Cosby raped her back in 1982. But while this is the first time she’s spoken out publicly about her own alleged rape, she just about implied as much in a 2006 interview with Howard Stern, which the shock jock’s website chose to upload today, in light of Dickinson’s allegations. Here is a transcript of the relevant exchange:

HS: So he nailed you? You had sex with Bill Cosby?

JD: Bill Cosby was the only guy I couldn’t write about in the book [No Lifeguard on Duty] because [HarperCollins was] afraid of lawsuits… wouldn’t touch that one. And I don’t want to get near that because I don’t have the shekels that you do or that Cosby does … The guy’s a bad guy. Let me just say that. He’s not a nice guy. He preys on women that just come out of rehab. I’ll just say that.
