Last month, Hannibal Buress resurfaced allegations that comedian Bill Cosby has been a serial rapist over the course of his career. One woman, who had spoken out before, came forward in October to retell her story in minute detail. Cosby has remained silent on the rape allegations, and as of today, will continue to officially do so, his lawyer claims.
After Bill Cosby responded to questions about the alleged rapes on Saturday's episode of Weekend Edition with head shaking and silence, the comedian's lawyer released a statement on Sunday that speaks even bigger volumes. Cosby plans, officially, to say nothing at all:
Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment. He would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives.
- John P. Schmitt, lawyer for Bill Cosby
"He is doing his best work."
