The story is building once again.
Comedian/TV legend Bill Cosby has cancelled his upcoming appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman
amid the resurfaced rape allegations that have plagued him for 13 years, according to Page Six
There's more, though.
Following the cancellation, NPR
aired an interview with Cosby that Scott Simon had conducted. The radio host brought up the allegations:
‘Simon: “This question gives me no pleasure, Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days.”’
‘Bill Cosby: [SILENCE]’
‘Simon: “You’re shaking your head no. I’m in the news business. I have to ask the question. Do you have any response to those charges?”’
‘Simon: “Shaking your head no. There are people who love you who might like to hear from you about this. I want to give you the chance.”’
There have been multiple women over the course of the 13 years that have come forward, yet no charges have ever been laid. One accuser, Barbara Bowman, said in recent interviews and in the Washington Post
online column: “Cosby won my trust as a 17-year-old aspiring actress in 1985, brainwashed me into viewing him as a father figure, and then assaulted me multiple times.”
The now 77-year-Cosby, as stated above, has never been criminally charged in any case, but did settle a civil suit with another woman back in 2006 over an alleged incident.
