Whoopi Goldberg Backtracks On Bill Cosby Support: Evidence ‘Points To Guilt’ (VIDEO)
As Gossip Cop reported, Goldberg has said on recent episodes of the show that she didn’t want to make “snap judgements” about Cosby, arguing that he was “innocent until proven guilty.” She even slammed people for criticizing her loyalty, telling them to “back off.” Goldberg, however, changed her tune on Tuesday, asking legal analyst Dan Abrams, “As a serial rapist, why is he still on the street?”
Abrams explained that in Cosby’s case, in which the comedian has been accused of raping and drugging about 50 women in incidents that allegedly took place years ago, that the statute of limitations has expired and the actor cannot be taken to court over the crimes. Goldberg admitted she was unaware that the only reason Cosby isn’t being charged now is because he legally can’t be due to the timing.
She continued, “I always thought if you could take somebody to court, then you can have the accuser say ‘that’s who did it, this is what t is,’ but you’re saying all that is left to these women is the court of public opinion.” Goldberg later added, “If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion, I gotta say, all the information that’s out there kinda points to guilt.”
And, in acknowledgement of the backlash she’s received for her comments about Cosby, the actress-comedienne now conceded, “I can’t say anymore ‘innocent until proven guilty.’” Check out the full video below, and tell us what you think.
