Bill Cosby: 'Please Don't Put Me on #MeToo'

Bill Cosby: 'Please Don't Put Me on #MeToo'

"Bill Cosby says he does not want to be on any sort of "#MeToo" list.

The Philadelphia native, who has allegedly sexually assaulted over 60 women, reportedly told a female journalist from the Philadelphia Inquirer he wanted no references implicating him in the recent widespread movement against sexual assault.

Cosby was dining at Ristorante La Veranda on Wednesday with childhood friend Ed Ford. The dinner was for Cosby, his publicist and members of the media they invited, and "was a decidedly odd affair", the Inquirer reporters wrote. Cosby lives in MA, but is visiting his hometown.

Cosby told reporters at the dinner he and his team were "ready" for the retrial scheduled to take place in April. Cosby claimed the incident was consensual sex, and that he had given her an herbal remedy. She said in court that Cosby gave her pills and then penetrated her with his fingers against her will while she was paralyzed and half-conscious. He has said Constand, a former executive with Temple University's women's basketball program, consented to their sexual encounter.

In Cosby's first trial, jury selection was moved to Pittsburgh over defence fears that widespread publicity could make it hard to find unbiased jurors in the Philadelphia area. Cosby has been accused by more than 50 women of drugging them and sexually assaulting them or attempting to do so.

Shit got real hairy when, at one point (which doesn't appear to have been caught on camera), he shook the hand of one woman who was reporting on the awkward ordeal and said "Please, don't put me in MeToo".

According to the Associated Press, some legal experts expect the #MeToo movement to trickle into Cosby's case when it is retried.
