We couldn’t agree with you more Judd!
Last night on CNN, Trainwreck director, Judd Apatow stopped by (below) to talk to Don Lemon and was asked about his thoughts on Bill Cosby in regards to the allegations and information that has come out recently.
Apatow was very blunt in reminding people that:
“He really hasn’t paid any price for it at all and I think it’s important that people try and do something about it because if not, it says to other people you can do it and you’re not going to get in trouble.”
Apatow has been a great voice speaking out against Cosby and his alleged crimes — so much so that many people have followed suit in abandoning their support of the comedian, including a major publication company!
Amidst all of the new information that has come out, the publication company, Simon & Schuster pulled their celebrity endorsements for the recent Bill Cosby biography, Cosby, written by Mark Whitaker.
Cary Goldstein, the publication’s VP and executive director of publicity, explained in a statement:
“Simon & Schuster and the author have decided to remove all of the celebrity endorsements we received prior to publication last fall,” Goldstein said in a statement. “In addition, there is no plan for releasing a paperback edition, or for issuing a revised version of the book.”
We think this is such a great decision by S&S and we couldn’t agree more that something needs to be done about Cosby, there should be some price paid, hopefully sooner rather than later!
Here’s the rest of the Apatow interview last night:
