Disgraced TV icon Bill Cosby needs no introductions as he became one of the most controversial and hated figures in history after he was accused of drugging and assaulting more than 60 women in the past few decades. He was also released from prison back in June after his conviction was overturned due to a technicality. The Comedy Cellar still doesn’t want to have anything to do with him.
One of Cosby’s accusers, Andrea Constand, recently spoke about him being freed from prison and revealed that she was shocked and disappointed at the turn of events.
According to TMZ, Bill Cosby’s representative Andrew Wyatt stated that the comedy tour Cosby was planning to launch is indefinitely postponed. The reason cited for the sudden postponement is because of Judy Huth’s civil lawsuit.
Huth sued Cosby back in 2014, where are alleged that he pounced on her at the Playboy Mansion in the ’70s, when she was just 15. The trial is set to begin in Spring next year.
Wyatt stated that Bill Cosby wants to avoid going on tour because he doesn’t want this dark cloud hanging over his head, believing that people will only talk about the sexual assault case and nothing else.
Performing onstage might also pose a risk for Cosby as Huth’s lawyers might potentially try to use his own words against him in the case. Wyatt claimed that he didn’t cancel the tour due to lack of interest, future claiming that about a dozen promoters approached Cosby for gigs.
Regardless of what Bill Cosby goes, he will certainly face a lot of hecklers and harassment due to his pending sexual assault cases and tarnished reputation.
