After the total number of women accusing Bill Cosby of rape has surpassed 30, the comedian has finally addressed the allegations. In an interview today with Good Morning America Cosby denied the numerous accusations of him drugging and raping women.
When asked point blank how he'd respond to someone who asked if the allegations are true he said:
I am prepared to tell this young person about life...I think that many of them say, 'Well you're a hypocrite.' My point is, 'OK, listen to me carefully, I'm telling you where the road is out. I'm telling you where as you're driving you're going to go into water and it looks like it may only be three inches but you and your car are going to go here. Now, you want to go here or you want to be concerned about who's giving you the message?
It's unclear why Cosby chose to finally speak today. He's only addressed the allegations in a brief interview with the New York Post, and his legal team has said repeatedly in statements of denial that Cosby himself wouldn't directly respond.
"I have been in this business over 52 years and I have never seen anything like this," Cosby added. "Reality is the situation. And I can't speak."
