NBC has cancelled development on a new sitcom starring Bill Cosby after a second round of sexual assault allegations against the 77-year-old comedian.
The most recent came from model Janice Dickinson yesterday, who claims Cosby sexually assaulted her back in 1982.
Honestly, I thought I’d be more surprised.
Cosby’s lawyer released a statement, saying,
“Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment. He would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives”
Netflix has also put the release of his comedy special, ‘Bill Cosby 77’, on hold until further notice, but his stand-up concerts will go ahead as scheduled… for now.
