Comedian Bill Cosby has been battling a slew of disturbing allegations of rape from an army of women that seem to be growing by the numbers daily.
Beverly Johnson, who found fame as the first Black model to grace the cover of Vogue, just recently stepped into the spotlight to share her harrowing tale, and fellow model and friend, Janice Dickinson claims Cosby also assaulted her.
But amidst all the chaos and the massive blow to his once spotless legacy, the comedian has chosen to remain silent and allow his lawyers to ward off the attacks to his now questionable character.
But this past Saturday, Cosby decided to offer the media some advice on how to navigate the trenches of his cripplingly bizarre world. While speaking to Stacy Brown, a reporter for the New York Post, who happens to be Black, the embattled comedian asked the media “to go in with a neutral mind.”
He went on to express his views on how certain outlets would handle his scandalous temperament, “Let me say this. I only expect the Black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.”
Cosby’s latest comments support the stance he has held on to ever since he became the subject of date rape claims. Last month, during an interview with Florida Today, he expressed the importance of checking the facts before jumping to conclusions.
Cosby also gave his wife Camille props, during his interview with The Post, right before he abruptly pulled the plug, for legal reasons. He acknowledged her “love and strength of womanhood”.
Well, at least he has that!
