This week another woman came forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sεxually abυsing her. In a second recent development, Cosby’s attorney came out and said that the comedian is trying to put the decades old allegations behind him. So this has already been a tough week for Mr. Cosby and it’s not getting any better with the revelation that Cosby made a joke about drugging women in 1969.
In the recording, Cosby discusses how young teenagers, like himself when he was young, always wanted some Spanish Fly because it made women fawn over men once it was slipped in their drink.
He then joked about going to Spain and trying to find some Spanish Fly. The joke probably wouldn’t have drawn much attention if Cosby weren’t facing charges that he drugged multiple women before sυxually assaulting them.
The audio was unearthed by the Village Voice’s Alan Scherstuhl, who wrote:
Even when I heard this bit as a kid, I wondered: Why would famous TV stars need a drug to get women interested in them? Why is sεx something to lie and cheat and scheme to get, rather than something to share? Hearing it now, it’s positively chilling, especially the crowd’s easy laughter, which suggests that Cosby was able to put over his fantasy of women stripped of their ability to say no as something near universal.
Bill Cosby’s appearance on David Letterman’s show was recently canceled over the allegations and when he appeared on NPR for an interview, Cosby just sat shaking his head when the interviewer mentioned the allegations against him.
What will this latest audio mean for Cosby?
