Well, it look’s like Hannibal Buress has definitely caused an uproar after his comedic thoughts on Bill Cosby’s past alleged sexual assault charges. After a week of a failed meme generator on Twitter, and the Washington Post’s column regarding one of his alleged victims, things tend to have gotten worst for the legendary comedian through NPR. This morning, Bill Cosby and his wife Camille appeared on Weekend Edition with host Scott Simon on NPR to talk about their art collection. However, at the near end of the show, Simon had to ask Bill Cosby about the resurface of his alleged charges, and there was silence:
SCOTT SIMON: “This question gives me no pleasure Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days.”
BILL COSBY: [SILENCE]
SIMON: “You’re shaking your head no. I’m in the news business. I have to ask the question. Do you have any response to those charges?”
SIMON: “Shaking your head no. There are people who love you who might like to hear from you about this. I want to give you the chance.”
SIMON: “Alright. Camille and Bill Cosby. They have lent 62 pieces from their collection of African and African-American art to create an exhibit called Conversations: African and African American Artworks in Dialogue. It’s now on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art through early 2016. Thank you both.”
As a result of this morning’s happenings, Bill Cosby’s appearance on David Letterman November 19th has been cancelled. As this story continue to get worst, we’ll keep you updated.
