Things aren't looking too good for Bill Cosby. The comedian stayed completely silent when he was asked repeatedly about the rape allegations he's being faced with during an interview with NPR on Saturday, Nov. 15.

NPR host Scott Simon asked the Cosby Show star, 77, about the shocking claims that have resurfaced recently while interviewing Cosby and his wife Camille about an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art.

"This question gives me no pleasure, Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days," Simon asked the legendary actor. "You're shaking your head no. I'm in the news business. I have to ask the question. Do you have any response to those charges?"

Cosby continued to his shake his head and stayed quiet about the subject. "There are people who love you who might like to hear from you about this," Simon continued, with no response. "I want to give you the chance."

The uncomfortable NPR chat comes just one day after former model and actress Barbara Bowman wrote an op-ed piece for The Washington Post claiming once more that she was raped by Cosby in the '80s. Amid the allegations, the Associated Press also confirmed Friday that Cosby's appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman for Wednesday, Nov. 19 has also been cancelled.
