Bill Cosby Publicist: ‘They Persecuted Jesus and Look What Happened’

After Bill Cosby was sentenced to prison and led out of court in handcuffs, his publicist Andrew Wyatt made some lengthy remarks to reporters declaring, “This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States.” Wyatt read a statement defending Cosby’s civil rights record and denouncing the racism and sexism he faced before invoking Brett Kavanaugh. No, seriously:
“What is going on in Washington today with Brett Kavanaugh is part of that sex war that Judge O’Neill along with his wife are a part of.”
He claimed that “falsified evidence” was used against Cosby, which was repeated by Ebonee Benson. They say a recording used against him was doctored. Wyatt added this:
“Mr. Cosby’s doing great, and Mr. Cosby knows that God is watching over him. He knows that these are lies. They persecuted Jesus and look what happened. I’m not Continue reading "Bill Cosby Publicist: ‘They Persecuted Jesus and Look What Happened’"

CNN Guest: You Can’t Defend Kavanaugh and Celebrate Bill Cosby Sentencing

As the country reacts to the Tuesday prison sentencing of Bill Cosby following his conviction on assault charges, a CNN guest contended no one standing by Judge Brett Kavanaugh could cheer on the #MeToo era’s biggest courtroom triumph. Yodit Tewolde, a Texas-based attorney, told the network’s Brooke Baldwin she was shocked by the number of social media users she saw celebrating justice for sexual assault survivors after it was announced that the actor would face three to 10 years behind bars. “During the break I’m scrolling through Twitter and I’m looking at people actually saying and applauding the sentence and then in the same breath wanting to defend Kavanaugh,” Tewolde said, calling it “disturbing.” The lawyer then argued that it was inherently contradictory to support the SCOTUS nominee and also be grateful for consequences for Cosby, stating that “anyone that’s defending Kavanaugh could not in the same breath now Continue reading "CNN Guest: You Can’t Defend Kavanaugh and Celebrate Bill Cosby Sentencing"

BREAKING: Bill Cosby Sentenced to Three to 10 Years in Prison

Bill Cosby , according to multiple reports, has been sentenced to three to 10 years in prison after being found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault last April. That makes the famed sitcom actor the first to be sent behind bars in the fallout of the #MeToo era as women step forward revealing years’ worth of abuse at the hands of powerful males, in part spotlighting those within media and entertainment. Cosby’s convictions stem from the assault of Andrea Constand, a former Temple University basketball coach whom he is said to have drugged and molested in 2004 inside his Philadelphia home. Constand is one of 60 women who have accused 81-year-old Cosby of similar acts including rape, grouping and slipping drugs into their drinks, revealing an apparently lengthy pattern of offenses within the history of the man once billed as “America’s Dad.” The sentencing was Continue reading "BREAKING: Bill Cosby Sentenced to Three to 10 Years in Prison"

Kathie Lee Gifford Defends Weinstein, Cosby: ‘Being a Jerk Isn’t the Same as Being a Rapist’

Kathie Lee Gifford expressed support for Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein — two alleged sexual assaulters she described as friends, despite dozens of credible accusations against each of them — in a Tuesday interview on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM pop culture show, Radio Andy. The daytime television personality, who co-hosts the 10 AM hour of Today, said she suffered multiple experiences of sexual abuse throughout her life, while simultaneously defending the two embattled men at the epicenter of the Me Too movement. “You can’t call yourself a friend when the first minute where there’s trouble, you run,” Gifford said. “I am not saying that kind of behavior is in any way acceptable — it isn’t and it’s horrible, as a woman who experienced it, it’s awful — but can we at least look at every individual case and see it for what it is and be merciful to people who Continue reading "Kathie Lee Gifford Defends Weinstein, Cosby: ‘Being a Jerk Isn’t the Same as Being a Rapist’"
