Bill Cosby has been pretty silent on all of the allegations of sexual assault that have been hurled against him ever since comedian Hannibal Buress made his, now infamous, comments in a standup routine.
In an interview with NPR last week, Cosby refused to comment when the “Weekend Edition” host asked him about the allegations by shaking his head no.
He did, however, decide to respond to the questions in a November 6 interview with the Associated Press. Cosby was onhand with his wife, Camille, to talk about the collection of African American art that he planned to loan the Smithsonian for an exhibit. When asked about the claims, Cosby replied, “There is no response.”
He then asks the interviewer to leave that part out of the video and print interview, saying:
“I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious that it will not appear anywhere.”
“If you will just tell your bosses the reason why we didn’t say that up front was because we thought that AP had the integrity to not ask.”

Janice Dickinson recently accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her, following actress Barbara Bowman and writer Joan Tarshis. Since then, Cosby has lost his upcoming sitcom deal with NBC and Netflix won’t air his comedy special next week.
