Bill Cosby’s wife Camille O. Cosby finally broke her silence on the rape accusations against her husband.
She stood in his defense and blamed the news media for not critically inspecting the women who have made the accusations.
“A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know. It is also the portrait painted by individuals and organizations whom many in the media have given a pass. There appears to be no vetting of my husband’s accusers before stories are published or aired. An accusation is published and immediately goes viral.”
Camille, who has been married to Cosby since 1964, added that her husband “is the man you thought you knew.”
“He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man and a wonderful husband, father and friend.”
She concluded that none of us would ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim, and urged the media to consider who the real victim is in this case.
