Bill Cosby responds to rape allegations: ‘I don’t talk about It’



Bill Cosby said “I don’t talk about it” when asked to comment on the numerous sexual assault allegations he has faced over the years, in a video segment released Wednesday night.

The previously unreleased Associated Press footage marks the first time Cosby has had any response other than remaining completely silent on the matter, as he did recently on NPR’s Morning Edition.


Since 2005, more than a dozen women, two of whom came forward recently, have accused Cosby of drugging and raping or molesting them. These charges, for which Cosby has never been criminally charged, began to garner more attention last month after footage went viral of comedian Hannibal Buress calling Cosby “a rapist” during a standup routine.



Janice Dickinson told Entertainment Tonight yesterday that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982. She becomes the 15th person to accuse the comedian of sexual abuse.


Bill Cosby's lawyer has responded to supermodel Janice Dickinson's claims that she was sexually assaulted by the comedian.


While giving a joint interview with his wife, Camille, on Nov. 6, Cosby was asked to comment on the Buress segment. Cosby refused to answer.


“There’s no response,” Cosby said. “There is no comment about that. And I’ll tell you why. I don’t want to compromise your integrity, but I don’t talk about it.”
