Whoopi Goldbers Stands By Bill Cosby, Says He’s “Innocent”
While Bill Cosby’s sworn admission to drugging and sedating women for sex is enough for some to backtrack on their support of the scandalized comedian, others are refusing to face that there may be some truth to the roughly 40 accusations against him. Whoopi Goldberg is still searching for additional proof, and she doesn’t care what you have to say about it. Via PageSix:
Whoopi Goldberg is doubling down in her defense of Bill Cosby despite his admission in sworn testimony he gave women Quaaludes to have sex with them.
“The View” host spoke about the most recent damning evidence against Cosby, which was revealed on Monday when previously sealed court documents were released. In a sworn deposition taken in 2005, the married entertainer admitted to purchasing Quaaludes with the intention of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with.
“I think it’s, again, we’ll see what happens,” Goldberg said of the Cosby developments. “As more information comes out, people can make judgments. I don’t like snap judgments.”
The TV host added she didn’t care what critics would say of her stance.
“Save your texts; save your nasty comments. I don’t care. I say this because this is my opinion, and in America, still, I know it’s a shock, but you are still innocent until proven guilty,” she said. “He has not been proven.”
Does Whoopi need to watch the man drug a woman and have sex with her sleeping body in person to believe what he ADMITTED TO DOING out of his own mouth?
Raven Symone tiptoed around the topic of Bill’s guilt, noting that the only reason she has a career is because of him:
Meanwhile, co-host Raven-Symoné, who starred on “The Cosby Show” alongside the comedian, seemed hesitant to chime in during the conversation. She admitted it was a tough topic for her to discuss.
“I don’t really like to discuss [this] because he is the reason I am on this panel in the first place. He gave me my first job,” she said. “You need proof and then I will be able to give my judgment here or there.”
Do YOU believe someone can still be considered innocent of something they admit themselves that they did?
