Bill Cosby says the darndest things. The comedian recently caught up with Good Morning America to raise awareness for the Black Belt Community Foundation, and, naturally, was asked about the sexual assault allegations against him. But during the pre-taped interview, which aired on Friday, May 15, the star tried his best to avoid talking about his ongoing scandal.
"Are you prepared for the backlash if a young person comes up to you and says my mom said you did some bad things?" GMA's Linsey Davis asked. "How will you answer that if they are pressing you?"
Cosby, 77, who only briefly discussed the topic in December 2014 with NPR, kept his answer short.
"I'm not sure that they will come like that. I think that many of them say, 'Well, you're a hypocrite. You say one thing, you say the other,'" he rambled, avoiding the question. "My point is — I'm telling you where the road is out. Do you wanna go here or do you wanna be concerned as to who is giving you the message?"
He added: "I have been in this business for 52 years and I've never seen anything like this. And reality is the situation, and I can't speak."
More than two dozen women to date have come forward accusing Cosby of sexual abuse. The actor has continued to do stand-up, however, and doesn't show any signs of stopping despite his now-tarnished reputation. His attorney John P. Schmitt has denied he did anything wrong.
"I really know what I'm going to do tomorrow," he told Davis. "I have a ton of ideas to put on television about people and their love for each other."
