Bill Cosby Jokes About Rape Allegations [VIDEO]

Bill Cosby addressed the sex allegations against him for the first time Thursday when he told a woman to be careful drinking around him at a show in Canada. The 77-year-old embattled comedian was performing in London, Ontario, his second show in a row since he began canceling appearances in the wake of sexual-assault allegations from more than 15 women. He asked a female audience member where she was going, to which she responded to the lobby to get a drink. β€œYou have to be careful about drinking around me,” he replied. The remark was met with gasps followed by applause from the audience. Later, a heckler began shouting at Cosby, calling him a rapist, before he was removed from the theater. Cosby issued a statement after the show, finally confronting the accusations: β€œDear Fans: One outburst but over 2600 loyal, patient and courageous fans enjoyed the most wonderful medicine that exist for human-kind. Laughter. I thank you, the theatre staff (Budweiser Gardens), the event organizers and the London, ON community for your continued honor and support. I’m Far From Finished.”
