Hecklers Shout ‘We Believe the Women’ at Bill Cosby Show

TIME

About 30 protesters disrupted Bill Cosby’s show in Ontario Friday night, chanting, “We believe the women,” in reference to the multiple sexual assault allegations against the comedian.

Cosby had been onstage in Hamilton, Ontario for about five minutes when around 30 women rose from their seats and took off their coats to reveal white T-shirts that said “we believe the women.” Some blew whistles and shouted at the comedian. Cosby urged security not to arrest the protesters, saying, “Stop, let them have their say,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Supporters of the comedian responded with shouts of “we believe the men” and “we love you Bill.” The show continued after the demonstration and Cosby received a standing ovation from the remaining audience members.

Bill Cosby’s Lawyer Claims CNN Is Trying to Destroy His Client

Black America Web

Bill Cosby‘s lawyer Marty Singer is not happy with CNN about their unethical and malicious, tactical coverage against his client, and he wants it to end, according to TMZ.

Singer wrote a letter to the news organization’s President Jeff Zucker — citing that his reporters are out to get Cosby by doing a special with former supermodel Beverly Johnson.

Recently, Johnson came forth and said Cosby drugged her in the mid-1980s in his NYC home. But Singer told CNN to get in contact with her boyfriend of four years, Mark Burk, who is telling a different story.

Singer claimed Burk said, “[Johnson] never said a negative statement about Bill Cosby throughout their entire four year relationship.”

Singer added, “Burk told CNN that to the contrary, Ms. Johnson stated that she was an admirer of Bill Cosby and only said great things about Mr. Cosby.”

Nevertheless, Singer claimed CNN is…

What I Have To Say About Supermodel BEVERLY JOHNSON, BILL COSBY & The Countless Women Who Raked Him

OTHERSIDEOFTHEFAME.COM

Bill_BeverlyThey say the pen is mightier than the sword and in this day and age-that old adage is even more true, real, (and surreal) for many.

Take model Beverly Johnson for instance, who had a story to tell that pretty much fell in line with countless other women recently (and as far back as early 2000s) coming out the woodworks with stories and accounts of being drugged and/or raped by non-other than the revered, respected, and beloved television father that Americans (black and white) had grown to love—like a father, a confidant, a teach, a preacher, a scholar—all things held in high regard and esteem.

You see back then (thirty years ago-like the Barbara Bowman’s/ “Why Did It Take 30 Years for Anyone To Believe Me”), trying to sword-fight a man like Bill Cosby would have cut no one off at the head but themselves.

Spelman College Still Supports Bill Cosby?

Atlanta Daily World

bill cosbys spelman

One entertainment publication went on record to say Spelman College still supports comedic legend Bill Cosby, while another more respected news outlet stated that the Atlanta-based all-female college is unsure if the support and partnership with Cosby will continue.

Entertainment blog, TMZ, said the historically black college in Atlanta that Bill Cosby gave $20 million may have is still standing behind the creator of “The Cosby Show.”

However, the The Washington Post reported that “the president’s office would not say whether the endowed professorship named for Cosby and his wife would continue..”

The quote from Aku Kadogo, the Cosby Endowed Professor in the Arts at Spelman, was ambiguous at best:

“I’m not worried about being the Cosby chair. It’s not a worry to me. It’s a difficult time for him. But it ain’t the end of the world. If Hillary can run for president — she went…
