Camille Cosby issued a statement on Monday blasting the media coverage of her husband, Bill Cosby’s drugging and rape allegations. She even blasted the alleged UVA rape victim, saying neither the accuser nor Bill Cosby’s accusers have ever been vetted.
Here’s Camille Cosby’s statement on her husband’s rape scandal:
I met my husband, Bill Cosby, in 1963, and we were married in 1964. The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew.
A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know. It is also a portrait painted by individuals and organizations whom many in the media have given a pass. There appears to be no vetting of my husband’s accusers before stories are published or aired. An accusation is published, and immediately goes viral.
We all followed the story of the article in the “Rolling Stone” concerning allegations of rape at the University of Virginia. The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband – until that story unwound.
None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked – who is the victim?
Camille Cosby’s scathing statement comes as yet another woman has accused her husband of drugging and raping her. Las Vegas adult entertainer Chloe Goins, 24, told MailOnline that Bill Cosby allegedly spiked her drink and lured him into a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. This comes as supermodel Beverly Johnson accused Cosby of drugging her in the mid-1980s.
Another blow for Bill Cosby….
Spelman College suspended its Bill Cosby professorship. The college issued a statement saying that the program was established in the name of Bill and Camille Cosby to bring positive attention and scholars to the campus. The HBCU said the current situation “prevents us from continuing to meet these objectives fully.”
