Bill Cosby Breaks Silence on Sex Assault Claims in Bizarre Interview
Bill Cosby is finally breaking his silence about shocking sexual assault allegations made against him by more than 40 women.
In his first on-air interview, he told Good Morning America, “I have been in this business 52 years and I've never seen anything like this."
Asked by ABC reporter Linsey Davis if his legacy is damaged forever, he had a strange reply as he shook his head.
“I really know about what I'm going to do tomorrow. I have a ton of ideas to put on television about people and their love for each other.”
The Internet exploded with reaction to the interview: "Bizarre" said Gawker; "near gibberish" wrote The Huffington Post.
The interview was conducted in conjunction with an appearance in Alabama on Friday, where Cosby spoke to high school students.
An INSIDE EDITION producer was permitted inside the event, and Cosby's appearance was applauded by about 200 students.
But many of Cosby’s accusers are outraged.
"That was a slap in the face," said former Playboy bunny Sarita Butterfield, who claims Cosby tried to fondle her at his Massachusetts home on Christmas Eve 1974.
Former model Jewel Allison claims Cosby drugged and raped her in the late 1980s. "I'm really praying that any of the young people, particularly the young women, that are around him know [to] be careful and protect yourself."
Other alleged victims include former supermodels Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson, who we caught up with Friday.
When INSIDE EDITION asked her what she thought of Cosby mentoring young students, she covered her face and appeared exasperated.
Cosby's lawyers have vehemently denied all the allegations made against him.
After his appearance in Alabama, Cosby went on to march across the historic Edmund Pettus Bridge, the site of the legendary civil rights march dramatized in the movie, Selma.
"He is disgracing the honor and all that Martin Luther King fought for for civil rights. This man crossing that bridge --the bridge should collapse," said Butterfield.
