With rape allegations against Bill Cosby mounting, supermodel Janice Dickinson has spoken out. She told ET in a new interview that the comedian sexually assaulted her in 1982.
Now the entertainment industry has taken notice and Netflix has reacted. Late last night, a Netflix spokesman e-mailed a number of other reporters to say that “At this time we are postponing the launch of the new stand up comedy special ‘Bill Cosby 77.’ ”
Netflix could still decide to air the special if Cosby’s reputation improves. They could also make it available in users’ queues at a later date. But the postponement shows that Cosby's publicity and accusations are gathering steam.
Attention to the legendary entertainer's past blew up recently after another comic, Hannibal Buress, called Cosby a "rapist". Two other women have emerged as accusers, including Barbara Bowman, who wrote an online Washington Post piece.
Cosby still has a sitcom in development with NBC for 2015.
