(EW) In his first public interview in more than two years, Bill Cosby said that racism might be partly responsible for the allegations of sexual assault against him, and that his accusers are “piling on” charges to court public opinion.
Speaking to SiriusXM host Michael Smerconish for a segment airing Tuesday, Cosby was asked about his daughter Ensa Cosby’s recent assertion that “racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal.”
“Could be, could be,” Cosby said. “I can’t say anything, but there are certain things that I look at, and I apply to the situation, and there are so many tentacles. So many different — nefarious is a great word. And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that.”
