Cosby Gives Flawless Performance At King Center
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA — A sold out crowd gave actor/comedian Bill Cosby a standing ovation on Friday night at the King Center.
More than 2,000 people showed up to watch Cosby perform flawlessly to an adoring crowd despite sexual assault allegations.
Cosby has been in the news recently after several women said he sexually assaulted them.
On Thursday, Therese Serignese, 57, of Boca Raton said Cosby raped her in 1976.
In a statement issued Friday by Martin Singer, Cosby’s lawyer, he said:
“The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity.
These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years.
Lawsuits are filed against people in the public eye every day. There has never been a shortage of lawyers willing to represent people with claims against rich, powerful men, so it makes no sense that not one of these new women who just came forward for the first time now ever asserted a legal claim back at the time they allege they had been sexually assaulted.
This situation is an unprecedented example of the media’s breakneck rush to run stories without any corroboration or adherence to traditional journalistic standards. Over and over again, we have refuted these new unsubstantiated stories with documentary evidence, only to have a new uncorroborated story crop up out of the woodwork. When will it end?
It is long past time for this media vilification of Mr. Cosby to stop.”
