In spite of the trouble around allegations that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted Janice Dickinson, he was still to perform. Below were a list of cancellations:
1. NBC and Netflix Have Scrapped Their Respective Bill Cosby Projects Amid New Rape Allegations.
2. Bill Cosby’s new comedy special shelved by Netflix The Week.
3. Janice Dickinson becomes 15th woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault.
4. Janice Dickinson Says She Was Sexually Assaulted By Bill Cosby.
5. Netflix Scrap Bill Cosby Projects Amid New Rape Allegations
6. Bill Cosby’s Letterman Appearance Canceled
It looked to me like this was a ten year old issue that reared its ugly head again. Unlike the Paula Deen fiasco, Bill Cosby was to rebound a lot faster. Right now, Netflix was postponing his special pending these alleged sexual assault/rape allegations. As a fan of both, giving them the benefit of the doubt was better than jumping on the crucifixion band wagon that the media seemed to enjoy when hearing things like this about high profile personalities.
Even though I am not a fan of Honey Boo Boo, TLC had every right cancelling the show because her mother was allegedly in a relationship with a convicted sex offender. That man had a mug shot and a paper trail. Cosby’s accusers hadn’t come up with any mug shot, arrest record or trial transcript. Until someone dug up those papers proving criminal activity, the media should let it go.
Bill Cosby had it right staying quiet about these alleged charges. Even though Thomas Jefferson lived openly with Sally Hemings, he learned the value of silence quieted the gossip mill. If everyone ignored this it would fade with time as did the last two accusers who came forward trying to get their fie minutes of fame over something written in a book.
