Samuel L. Jackson to Bill Cosby: “Say Something”

By Michal Ortner

Many high profile celebrities have offered their opinion on the Bill Cosbytn2_samuel_l_jackson_1 scandal, which has involved several women who claim that Cosby made inappropriate advances toward them. Samuel L. Jackson is now sharing his opinion on the situation. In the 80s, Jackson actually worked with Cosby as his camera stand-in for three years.

“I wish he would say something,” said Jackson. “Popular opinion would say, ‘Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.’ But, I mean, I can’t make a judgment about it.”

Over 30 women have stepped forward in regards to the Cosby scandal. Cosby, 77, has not given any direct statements concerning the accusations—though his lawyers and representatives have denied allegations. Many of the women’s claims fall outside of the statute of limitations and are not eligible for any kind of compensation.

Reports of abuse have been circulating since the early 2000s, but have just recently gained public attention because of Barbara Bowman’s written piece that was published by the Washington Post. The piece was titled, “Bill Cosby Raped Me. Why Has It Taken 30 Years For People To Believe My Story?”

With all the turmoil recently connected with Cosby’s name, Eddie Murphy declined impersonating the comedian on the “Saturday Night Live” 40th Anniversary Special.   Murphy reportedly “didn’t want to kick a man when he’s down.”

On Thursday, Cosby responded to the gesture through his spokesperson: “I am very appreciative of Eddie and I applaud his actions.”

Many of the women who have accused Cosby share similar stories, saying that Cosby used his credibility as a superstar to lure them to hotel rooms where he subsequently took advantage of them.

Jackson finished his statements by saying, “I mean, I make my judgments because I have a daughter, I have a wife that I love. I have a lot of women in my life, and I know, you know, women are vulnerable to society. And people with power take advantage of people.”

Spokespersons for Cosby have called the accusation against him “discredited” and “defamatory.”
