We can't help but shake our heads at this.

Bill Cosby is set to give speeches to "young athletes" and "married men" about how to avoid sexual assault allegations.

Yes, really.

Cosby's trial for sexual assault was thrown out last week due to a mistrial after jurors couldn't come to an agreement on his guilt.

While waiting for a new trial to begin, the former TV star is going to hold a series of talks not on consent, but on how “young athletes” and “married men” can avoid accusations “when they are doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”

CNN reports that Bill's publicists announced the news during an interview on Good Day Alabama.

Instead of focusing on consent (which should be a priority for everyone, tbh), he's going to tell people the ins and outs of how long it takes legal proceedings to begin, and how men can handle the "issue" of being accused of sexual assault.

One of his publicists, Andrew Wyatt, said: “This issue [of being accused of assault] can affect any young person – especially young athletes of today and they need to know what they are facing when they are hanging out and partying, when they are doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”

He added: “And it also affects married men.”

Later that day, Mr Wyatt told Rolling Stone: “It’s important to educate people that you could be at a baseball game and it could be crowded and a young man could try to squeeze through and accidentally touch a young lady's butt or breast by mistake and that could be considered sexual assault.

"It's imperative that we educate people that want to be educated.”

He told the magazine that Bill is due to begin his talks next month.

Cosby's case ended in a mistrial on June 17 after 52 hours of juror deliberations.

One juror anonymously said that the jury was split down the middle, while another juror told a publication that it was 10-2 in favour of finding him guilty.



Kanye's at it again. 

The rapper has unleashed social media carnage after a controversial tweet posted in the early hours of this morning. 

While we try to figure out whether Kanye is a genuine nut or just a total publicity hoarder, Twitter has spent the morning reacting to the 38-year-old's assertion that Bill Cosby is innocent. 

Bill, who was released on bail last month after being charged with sexual assault, has been accused of sexually harassing upwards of fifty women during his lengthy career. 

The tweet today may reference an ongoing, complicated defamation case brought by model Janice Dickinson against the 78-year-old. The model has claimed that the comedian drugged and raped her back in the eighties. 

While the internet's reaction is something to behold, leading the charge against Kanye is Sarah Silvermen. 

"Kanye!! You can't be for real. FIFTY WOMEN. With nothing to gain thanks to a statute of limitations ON RAPE. Oy," said the comedienne and actress on Twitter

Other fans of the star have taken to social media to lament the tweet while one user asked the rapper to deactivate his social media account. 

With the rapper due to release his new album tomorrow, let's just hope this was not an ill-advised publicity stunt. 



Former model and TV host, Janice Dickinson, has come forward with claims that veteran actor and comedian Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982.

Cosby, who has been accused of rape and molestation in recent weeks, has refused to address the claims so far, instead issuing a statement through his lawyer which states: “Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment.”

Janice is the latest woman to accuse The Cosby Show star of rape, sexual assault and drugging. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the fifty-five-year-old former America’s Next Top Model host detailed the evening the alleged crime took place, saying: “He had given me wine and a pill. I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man.”

When asked why she had kept the incident to herself, she replied: "I was afraid of the consequences. I was afraid of [being accused] of trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place.”

The former model says the incident led her down a destructive path and “into a life of trying to hurt myself because I didn’t have counsel and I was afraid.”

When asked what she would say to Cosby now if she had the chance, Janice replied: “How dare you? How dare you? How dare take advantage of me? I hope you rot.”




It was revealed last month that 77-year-old veteran actor Bill Cosby was facing allegations of drugging, sexual assault and rape. The allegations, which date back decades, came to light again recently when comedian Hannibal Buress made reference to reports that the much-loved actor and comedian had, with the help of his PR team, continuously try to hide the alleged crimes.

Yesterday, Bill Cosby’s lawyer released a statement which asserts that the actor has no intention of addressing the rumours, saying: “Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment.”

The star of The Cosby Show was a guest on American radio talk show Weekend Edition on Saturday morning, but refused to answer any questions regarding the allegations and simply shook his head when the issue was raised.

Cosby was due to appear on Late Show with David Letterman later this week, but it has been reported that the star has cancelled the appearance. This comes after reports that the actor also postponed an appearance on Queen Latifah’s talk show in recent days.

Cosby’s lawyer, John P. Schmidt has asserted that there wil be no further statement from Cosby’s representatives and says: “Mr. Cosby would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them, at age 77, he is doing his best work."
