On Saturday, Weekend Edition host Scott Simon ended an interview with Bill and Camille Cosby by asking the comedian point-blank for comment on the accusations by more than a dozen women of sexual assault. In response, Cosby only shook his head.

From NPR's transcript of the segment:

SIMON: This question gives me no pleasure Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days.


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.


Shortly after his Weekend Edition appearance, the Associated Press reported that Cosby's scheduled spot on Wednesday's Late Show with David Letterman had been canceled. This follows a similar cancelation by The Queen Latifah Show last month.

The charges against Cosby have been public for almost a decade, but have received renewed attention after comedian Hannibal Buress called him "a rapist" during a recent stand-up set.

Cosby had originally been invited onto Weekend Edition to discuss his collection of African art.
