Bill Cosby has certainly been laying low.
Though, that doesn’t mean the world has forgotten about his recent scandal.
Over the weekend, the scandalized celeb was spotted leaving his townhouse in NYC to head back to his Massachusetts compound with his wife and supporter, Camille.
In fact, this is the first time the duo have been photographed together since LAST YEAR when the couple gave an interview to NPR as more alleged victims came forward accusing the TV icon of sexual assault. Cosby himself hasn’t had his picture snapped since May.
Unfortunately, that fact doesn’t surprise us as most of Hollywood has turned on the comedian as he faces claims that he drugged and raped dozens of women over the years.
On Tuesday, Bob Saget (who is a longtime Cosby fan) sat down with Huffpost Live and commented on the terrible controversy.
“I think any human being that does things that are despicable to other human beings will be slightly tarnished by history. I went to [Cosby’s alma mater] Temple University, and he was a mentor of mine. ├óΓé¼┬ª It’s very sad. I think the answer is obvious: The man has been tarnished. And it’s just sad for all of the people involved.”
Oof! We can only imagine what a rude awakening Cosby’s legal drama was for the Full House dad.
“I was fortunate enough to know Richard Pryor, and Richard Pryor started by copying Cosby’s material. Then he went, ├óΓé¼╦£I’m gonna go try it this way.’ And that was more my influence [from Pryor], but I also had respect for Cosby because he changed stand-up comedy…You do find out the people you look up to, unfortunately, they’re down off their throne when things like this happen.”
That’s an inneresting point. Still, we doubt that the 78-year-old will ever make a comeback after all of this ugliness!
