Actor Says He Knows Additional Bill Cosby Accusers Who Won’t Come Forward
Bill Cosby insists he’s innocent in the sexual assault crimes he’s been found guilty of. But not everyone is convinced. Fellow actor, John Amos, once revealed he witnessed a different side of Cosby when working with him during an episode of The Cosby Show. Now, another actor, Michael Jai White, says he personally knows four women who accuse Cosby of sexual misconduct who won’t come forward with their accounts.
Michael Jai White says he knows additional Bill Cosby accusers who won’t come forward
In a recent interview with Vlad TV, the topic of Cosby and his accusers came up. While Vlad admits he straddles the fence with who to believe – Cosby or his accusers, – due to many of the women not coming forward with their accounts until years later, White’s stance is clear.
“So 50 women lied on him – on one of the most powerful people on the planet,” White asks Vlad.
As Vlad tried to make the case that anyone can be lied on, White did not back down. “I’ve never had 50 people lie on me. 50 people say I did something to them?”
Vlad continued with playing devil’s advocate, trying to make the case that Cosby’s accusers could have been after his money.
“That’s very specific, there’s a lot of people with a ton of money…I know four people that never came forward [against Cosby],” White shot back. “I know four women who are personal friends that have had issues with Bill Cosby…this was well before any of this stuff came out.”
To clarify, White says all four women are not accusing Cosby of rape. He does say that the women allege they were drugged, had non-consensual sexual contact, or had issues related to sexual harassment with Cosby.
Furthermore, White says Cosby’s personal reputation behind the scenes was known to be one of a sexual predator.
Bill Cosby is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence
Cosby is currently in a Pennsylvania prison for various sex crimes. In 2018, a Montgomery County judge found him guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a Temple University employee in 2004.
Cosby has appealed his conviction multiple times. Per USA Today, he’s cited a number of “errors” by the trial judge in his case.
The publication also says Cosby will willingly serve the full 10-year sentence as he refuses to admit guilt or offer an apology to his accusers.
“I have eight years and nine months left,” Cosby told a reporter during a jailhouse phone interview. “When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse.”
Cosby believes he’s being unfairly punished and considers himself to be a “political prisoner.” his legal team, as well as his supporters, say he’s being unfairly persecuted because of his position in Hollywood.
There were rumors of a conspiracy to take Cosby down due to him potentially buying NBC right before his sexual assault scandal broke. Cosby’s team hints to believing such.
Cosby’s reputation of being a serial predator was brought to light after fellow comedian Hannibal Buress referenced Cosby allegedly drugging and raping women during a stand-up comedy set.
Months later, New York Magazine dedicated a cover story to 35 women accusing Cosby of assault, dating back to the 1970s.
