Newly released court documents from a 2005 deposition of Bill Cosby have shed a new light on the allegations against him.
In the unsealed files, the 77-year-old — who has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting dozens of women — admitted to acquiring drugs with the intention of using them to have sex with girls.
But on The View on Tuesday, Whoopi Goldberg revealed that she’s not condemning the comedian just yet, saying:
“We’ll see what happens as more information comes out. People will make judgments. I don’t like snap judgments because I’ve had snap judgments made on me, so I’m very, very careful…Save your texts, save your nasty comments. I don’t care.”
The 59-year-old even went on to say that she isn’t going to view him as a rapist until physical evidence against him has surfaced:
“This is my opinion and in America, still ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I know it’s a shock ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ but you actually were innocent until proven guilty. He has not been proven a rapist.”
“What is wrong with you, Whoopi Goldberg? What more does it take? You need to be fired. How dare you sit there on The View? You need to be fired, you stupid woman. That is ridiculous.”
She also responded to Cosby’s confession about getting drugs for sex, revealing she can’t consider it a victory until some wrongs have been righted:
“I don’t know how to feel. I don’t have the strength at the moment until — until each and every one of the women that have accused Bill Cosby along with myself and a few others that have personally reached out to me that will not come forward due to character victimization — I would like an apology for each and every one of us in order for my soul to feel. I don’t feel any ‘hip-hip hoorays.'”
So what do U think of the disturbing drama, Perezcious readers?
