Whoopi Goldberg Is Still Defending Bill Cosby
While Jill Scott, almost everyone who can read, and goddamn Raven-Symoné grasped the magnitude of Bill Cosby’s unsealed court testimony where he admits to drugging women so he could have sex with them, Whoopi Goldberg STILL thinks he’s innocent because this is the same woman who thinks Roman Polanski didn’t commit “rape rape.” Via Mediaite:
Later, Goldberg joked about being a “former Quaalude user” and said she doesn’t “like snap judgments” because she’s seen people do the same to her. “Save your texts, save your nasty comments, I don’t care,” she added to cheers from the audience.
“I say this because this is my opinion, and in America still, I know it’s a shock, but you actually were innocent until proven guilty,” she continued. “He has not been proven a rapist.” Asked then what the “motivation” for dozens of women to come forward to accuse him, Goldberg responded, “What was the motivation for an entire party to decide that I was a rotten person? I don’t know.”
Jesus Christ. Even Candace Cameron gets that Bill Cosby is guilty, and she believes her moron brother is a divine prophet sent to save Christmas. Fortunately, there are way less voices like Whoopi’s in light of the unsealed documents, and way more like Judd Apatow’s who took his unrelenting hounding of Cosby to Esquire where he called out Phylicia Rashad and Camille Cosby:
We shouldn’t need Bill Cosby to admit it to believe forty people who were victimized by him. I am sure there are many victims who have not come forward. Maybe now more people in show business and all around our country will stand up and tell the people he attacked that we support you and believe you. I also hope Camille Cosby and Phylicia Rashad will now stand with the victims and not with their attacker.
Of course, the greatest condemnation comes from the judge who ordered the documents to be unsealed thanks to Bill Cosby’s penchant for constantly telling everyone how to live their lives despite being on trial for raping people. Via Buzzfeed:
“The stark contrast between Bill Cosby, the public moralist and Bill Cosby, the subject of serious allegations concerning improper (and perhaps criminal) conduct, is a matter as to which the AP — and by extension the public — has a significant interest,” Judge Eduardo C. Robreno wrote on Monday.
“This case, however, is not about [Cosby’s] status as a public person by virtue of the exercise of his trade as a televised or comedic personality. Rather, [Cosby] has donned the mantle of public moralist and mounted the proverbial electronic or print soap box to volunteer his views on, among other things, childrearing, family life, education, and crime.”
Robreno added that Cosby freely entered the sphere of public affairs: “He has voluntarily narrowed the zone of privacy that he is entitled to claim.”
The judge then added, “Tell that to pull up its pants, bitch,” except not really because this world isn’t that awesome. Case in point: Bill Cosby.
