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]

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.

  • Tracy Morgan is still suffering from the effects of the traumatic brain injury he sustained in a June car accident. According to Morgan’s lawyer, he maybe never be “the Tracy Morgan he once was.” The lawyer told the AP: “When you have a traumatic brain injury it takes a very long time to find out how you’re going to do and how much you’re going to recover. You just don’t know. So that’s where he is. He’s still fighting and trying to live his life at the same time and trying to get better, and he’s just not better. We’re hoping and praying to get him back to where he was. But the jury’s out.” Feel better, Tracy! [ABC News]

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.

CNN’s Don Lemon Asks Cosby Accuser Why She Didn’t “Use Teeth” To Avoid Being Raped

CNN's Don Lemon Asks Cosby Accuser Why She Didn't "Use Teeth" To Avoid Being Raped
"There are ways NOT to perform oral sex..."

Last night on CNN, Don Lemon was interviewing Joan Tarshis, one of the latest women to come forward accusing Bill Cosby of rape, and he just couldn’t stop himself from volunteering some completely unnecessary, bullshit “advice.” For context: Tarshis told CNN that that in 1969, when she was 19, Cosby drugged her. She awoke to him pulling off her underwear and she tried to make Cosby stop by lying and saying she had an infection. Cosby raped her orally instead. “I thought I was very clever in saying that, but he was more clever and instead he made me have oral sex with him, which really was just horrible,” she told CNN. “To me it’s much, much worse than had he just raped me the normal way.”

Oh, but according to Lemon, Tarshis could have prevented that too: Keep reading »
