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.”

  1. Naw, Cosby. Don't say NOTHING!!! Let your Attorney speak for you.

  2. If he was any type of a innocent man, he would say something. What his lawyers states is not his voice the PPL want to hear! So his fanbase can continue to support BC.. and let me say this..30 women who don’t know each other all saying the same thing?.. OK…

    ..what he could say is that he as a married man was WRONG for hading sex with these GIRLS..but the act was concensual.. then the evidence would be on his accuser to prove he drugged and RAPED them..becuz as it stands he’s legacy will included and rumored as pervert rapist of young girls as married man.. so why would he NOT say something?

    And this is NOt going away as like before, when he paid and settled in court with another girl decades back saying the EXACT SAME THING.. the evidence was there, that’s why BC settled..and this history too doesn’t help him now , this further hinders him upon these allegations as a pervert rapis..

  3. Sandra to Samuel Jackson mind your own business.

  4. He's GUILTY so he won't be saying a word! But has to answer to JEHOVAH GOD tho LOL

  5. The need to think Samuel had to reply to someone questioning him is because he HAD TO. He HAD to or else THEY would strung his behind up too! The nerve of that cat!

  6. Some say he is guilty and who are our voices to cast the stone its up to the courts and the claims to proven on the merits of his acts. With all the attention media a possible realization of a fair trail by jurors of qualified women or men less judgmental as these comment here and news comment aired has mostly convicted him by the press. As our own dilemma with white violating our own right and we pursue rendering the decision always not in our favor even we think that way about our own kind. So if you let the case work it self out and hear the given accounts merits are true the verdict will speak on the accounts not by media or opinions.

  7. Why does he need to say anything? The question is why now did all of this surface.
