Bill Cosby, for all that he’s achieved in life, will forever be aligned with the struggle that is the mounting sexual assault and rape allegations that have dogged him the past few years. The once celebrated entertainer suggested that the charges against him could be the result of racist attacks in a radio interview set to air Tuesday morning.
Page Six reports:
“Could be. Could be,” Cosby told Sirius XM’s Michael Smerconish, referring to new racism charges made by Cosby’s daughter, Esna.
“There are so many tentacles. So many different – ‘nefarious’ is a great word. And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that.”
Ensa Cosby released an audio statement Monday that said “racism has played a big role” is her father’s sex scandal.
“The accusations against my father have been one-sided from the beginning,” Esna Cosby said.
The interview is set to air on Sirius XM’s POTUS ch. 124 at 10 a.m. today. And some of you might remember, this isn’t the first time Cosby has gone to the racism well regarding his case. Cosby is slated to go on trial in Pennsylvania no later than June 5, 2017.
An excerpt of Bill Cosby interview can be heard below, where Smerconish artfully notes that Cosby’s accusers have been both Black and white. Right. Carry on.
