Bill Cosby really doesn't seemed very concerned about the two dozen women who have come forward claiming the comedian drugged, sexually assaulted or harassed them.
Throughout the scandal, Cosby has remained mostly silent, speaking up only to urge the black media to remain "neutral" and threatening an AP reporter to "scuttle" a portion of their interview. However, Cosby did joke about the allegations during his London, Ontario show on Thursday, according to The National Post.
One of the paper's reporters Richard Warnica was at the show and tweeted the whole ordeal. "A woman in the front row got up to go get a drink. Cosby asked her where she was going. She asked him if he wanted a drink," Warnica tweeted. "He said no, he already had one (a bottle of water)."
Then Cosby allegedly told the woman, "You have to be careful about drinking around me." According to Warnica, the crowd gasped at first, but those gasps soon "changed to cheers and applause."
However, not every audience member was happy with Cosby's dismissive attitude towards the mounting allegations of decades of sexual assault. Two men were ejected from the show after one of them yelled, "We don't love you, Bill!" As security removed them from the theater, the man screamed, "You are a rapist. I'm being ejected because you are a rapist." He was then arrested for failing to identify himself.
This was the second of three shows Cosby is performing in Ontario this week. And other than those two incidents, Thursday's show went exactly as it might have had the allegations against Cosby, which have been around for years, not finally received critical attention. Cosby was applauded when he entered the arena to start the show, the audience laughed at all his jokes and at the end of the set, they even gave Cosby a standing ovation.
What was happening outside the venue told a different story, however. On Thursday night, over 100 protesters were gathered, heckling fans, chanting "Bill Cosby is a rapist" and handing out flyers with help lines for abused women.
