You may remember my blog post two weeks ago about Bill Cosby, HERE.
The story has progressed.
More women have come out and charged that he raped them. Well, drugged and raped them.
Bill Cosby’s machine is in full spin cycle, which means that he is “not dignifying charges with a response.”
And now, Whoopi Goldberg has opened her mouth, opining that she is skeptical of charges against him. Whoopi Goldberg on rape is something to behold.
Recall that Whoopi also opined that a 43-year-old man sodomizing an unconscious 13-year-old girl was not really “rape-rape.” Which is, apparently, different than “rape.” Seriously?
Now, she’s talking about the women who have come forward with stories of Cosby’s non-consensual style of sex. In the real world, we call that rape, Whoopi. Just so you know. Because you seem pretty out of touch.
HERE is what she said.
Now, I get where she’s coming from. Celebrities are often victimized by rumors that aren’t true.
And I’m sure there are crazy women who would come forward with fake rape charges. It’s happened.
Far too many women have come forward for it to be a fluke. Or crazy behavior. Far too many.
What sane woman would make these allegations just for publicity? What sane woman would risk the vilification and the kinds of silly skepticism that these women are facing unless it were true?
And, as you know from my previous blog post on the subject, I, myself, talked to two women he propositioned. These were random conversations, one recently and one 25 years ago.
From the multitude of charges and their similarities, Cosby appears to be a rapist.
Whoopi, on the other hand, appears to be completely out of touch.
Cosby should keep his pecker in his pants and his hands to himself. He should stand trial for these accusations. It’s true that in our country people are innocent until proven guilty. I hope that the statute of limitations hasn’t run out so he can face the accusations in a court of law. Although I think we’re more likely to see settlements, because I believe the accusations are true. He’ll say that he doesn’t want to put his family through a trial and all that publicity. But I won’t believe it for a minute. I didn’t spend more than a decade in reputation management for nothing.
Whoopi should shut her mouth because what’s coming out of it is making her look stupid and out of touch. She needs her own reputation management counsel. I can say with certainty that given her views on rape I now look at her differently and I’ll bet others do, too. She’s fast becoming a polarizing person and that can’t be a good thing for an entertainer.
And you? What do you think about all this?
