A former NBC employee has come forward to say that years of "covering up" for Bill Cosby eventually made him quit his job.
Frank Scotti tells the New York Daily News that he was essentially Cosby's yes-man — standing guard outside the comedian's dressing room while he brought young models in, paying off women in exchange for their silence, and even securing a second apartment for Cosby's exploits.
"I did a lot of crazy things for him," Scotti, 90, told the Daily News. "He was covering himself by having my name on it. It was a coverup. I realized it later."
It's difficult to find humor in the multitude of sexual assault allegations that have been lobbed at (slash resurfaced against)Bill Cosby this week, but Saturday Night Live managed to get a laugh out of it.
While companies rush to cut ties with Bill Cosby in the wake of mounting rape allegations, the truth is they shouldn't have made such partnerships to begin with. Thirteen women accused Cosby of sexual assault nearly 10 years ago, when the first official charge against him was made in 2005. But it wasn't until a video of (male) comedian Hannibal Buress calling Cosby a rapist during an October stand-up set went viral that people began to care. Since then, even more women have come forward with horrific allegations about Cosby dating back decades.
