Bill Cosby left a Canadian audience stunned on Thursday night when he decided to make a joke about the rape allegations that have been made against him.
According to people who were live-tweeting the show as it happened, when a woman got up part of the way through his act, Cosby stopped and asked where she was going. She reportedly told him that she was headed to the lobby to get a drink.
“You have to be careful about drinking around me,” he replied.
People on the scene reported that initially there was a gasp when Cosby made the joke – then laughter.
Cosby, 77, has been accused of sexual assault by more than 15 women. Some of the accusers alleged that he slipped something into their drinks beforehand.
Although he has faced an assortment of accusations over the past decade, Cosby has never actually been tried or found guilty in connection with any sort of sexual assault.
