Bill Cosby Just Sued Seven Of His Accusers, But Only Seven
Bill Cosby has been accused of raping over 50 women, and yesterday, he decided to sue a whopping seven of them for defamation. Just seven. Because apparently the other 40-something are cool? Yup, they really thought this one through. Via Huffington Post:
On Monday, the 78-year-old actor filed a defamation suit again Tamara Green, Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis and Angela Leslie, according to his lawyer Monique Pressley.
In the suit, Cosby claims the women have made “malicious, opportunistic and false and defamatory accusations of sexual misconduct against him.” He also claims each defendant “knowingly published false statements and accusations.”
Considering Bill Cosby has already admitted under oath that he drugged women he wanted to sleep with, this is probably going to be an uphill battle. But for the sake of argument, let’s say exactly all seven of these women are lying. That still leaves 40-plus accusers who Bill Cosby is even more visibly not fighting in court, so what’s the win here? “Well, you see, Theo, once you scuttle all the liars out of the bozzum bizzum mix, you can see that zappy dooby wow, I raped just shy of 50 women. That’s practically gentlemanly-like with the pudding pops. RUDY!”
