Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby broke his silence on Friday (Dec. 12), after he became the focus of claims from women accusing him or rape.

The actor/comedian has asked the media to stay neutral in reporting on the multiple rape allegations against him, and when asked about the headlines in an interview with Page Six, he responded: “Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism, and when you do that, you have to go in with a neutral mind.”

Also, Cosby explained that his wife is standing by him, despite the claims. “Love and the strength of womanhood. Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love.”

The interview ended abruptly with him adding: “They don’t want me talking to the media.”

More than two dozen women have come forward, claiming Cosby either drugged or raped them, or both, all spanning over, at least, four decades, beginning in the 1960s.
