Bill Cosby says that in all of his years in show business, he’s “never seen anything like” his situation after being accused by multiple women of sexual assault.
The comedian appeared on Good Morning America on Friday to promote a non-profit organization, the Black Belt Community Foundation, which aims to improve education for children in high-poverty counties near Selma, Ala. Yet when the subject turned to the many allegations against him, he seemed to be at a loss for sensible words.
Asked how he would react if the children he’s there to help were to confront him about his sexual assault allegations, he said, “I’m not sure that they will come like that. I think that many of them say, ‘Well you’re a hypocrite’ … My point is, okay, listen to me carefully, I’m telling you where the road is out. You wanna be here, or you wanna be concerned about who is giving you the message.”
“The reality is the situation,” he said, “and I can’t speak.”
Cosby says he has plans for the future, noting, “I have a ton of ideas to put on television about people and their love for each other.”
More of the interview with Linsey Davis will air on Nightline on Friday night.
