Variety is reporting that, post-mistrial, Bill Cosby has plans to tour town halls and hosts series of talks on the subject of sexual assault.
Of course, I could save Mr Cosby the the time and effort by boiling it down to just three words: Don’t do it.
His spokesman Andrew Wyatt spoke to WBRC’s Good Day Alabama in Birmingham, saying:
“Mr. Cosby wants to get back to work. We’re now planning town halls and we’re going to be coming to this city sometime in July … 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 shouldn’t be doing. And it also affects married men.”
“Laws are changing. The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended. So this is why people need to be educated. A brush against the shoulder, anything at this point, can be considered sexual assault and it’s a good thing to be educated about the laws.”
A BRUSH AGAINST THE SHOULDER? Literally want to bang my head against a wall.
So many things wrong with that statement.
