Following the declaration of a mistrial in the Bill Cosby sexual assault, spokespeople for the comedian have said he plans to embark on a town hall speaking tour to teach people how to avoid sexual assault accusations.
“Mr. Cosby wants to get back to work,” Andrew Wyatt, a spokesperson for Cosby, told a local Fox affiliate in Alabama on Thursday. “We are now planning town halls…. We’re going to talk to young people, because this is bigger than Bill Cosby. This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today. And they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things that they should be doing. And it also affects married men.”
How fucked up is that?
I have a feeling that Bill Cosby suffers from some of the same “witch hunt” delusions that Donald Trump does.
The announcement comes less than a week after Cosby’s high-profile trial on charges of aggravated indecent assault ended in a mistrial. The jury was unable to come to a unanimous decision.
Wyatt said the idea for the town halls came last week after calls poured in from churches and civic organizations asking Cosby to speak about what people can learn from sexual abuse allegations.
There is no official schedule for the town halls yet, Wyatt said, but Cosby’s team is planning on at least a five city tour that would include stops in Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia.
That is one tour that I will be skipping.
