Bill Cosby performed in the Bahamas on Thursday night amid an avalanche of sexual assault accusations. Despite the headlines, the comedian received a small standing ovation from the audience. Today, one of his accusers, Janice Dickinson, gave her reaction to the audience’s warm welcome.
“That’s disgusting,” Janice said bluntly.
Cosby’s comedy shows scheduled at Las Vegas’ Treasure Island Hotel on Nov. 28 and the Diamond Desert Casino in Tucson, Arizona on Feb. 15 were canceled, but he was still scheduled to perform his sold-out show Nov. 21 at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, Fla.
On Tuesday, Dickinson gave detailed allegations of how in 1982 she claims Cosby sexually assaulted her after a dinner in Lake Tahoe.
Since Dickinson spoke to ET, Carla Ferrigno, Lou Ferrigno’s wife, has also come forward with her own allegations against Cosby, saying that he “forcibly kissed her” in the 1960s.
Cosby has never been charged in any criminal case regarding any of these accusations, and his attorney Marty Singer responded to Ferrigno’s allegations in a statement to ET.
“This continuing pattern of attacks on Mr. Cosby has entered the realm of the ridiculous, with a purported ‘forceful kiss’ at a party in 1967, nearly 50 years ago, being treated as a current ‘news story’ and grossly mischaracterized as a ‘sexual assault,'” said Singer. “This is utter nonsense. People coming out of nowhere with this sort of inane yarn is what happens in a media-driven feeding frenzy.”
