Comedian Bill Cosby, has responded to reports that her husband is a serial rapist.
Mrs. Cosby released a statement to the media yesterday affirming her marital vows to stand by her husband.
Mrs. Cosby spoke out for the first time about allegations that Bill Cosby, 77, drugged and raped numerous women, including former supermodels Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson decades ago.
“He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man,” Mrs. Cosby said in a statement first reported by CBS. “A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know.”
Many of the allegations against Bill Cosby are hearsay: their word against his. No criminal charges have been brought against him, and no evidence supports the women’s outrageous claims.
Mrs. Cosby compared the allegations against her husband to a Rolling Stone article written by a U.Va. rape accuser. The woman’s story is now in doubt because it contains factual errors and fabricated facts.
“None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim,” Mrs. Cosby wrote. “But the question should be asked — who is the victim?”
The Cosby’s celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in January.
