Bill Cosby has finally commented following several allegations of sexual assault. When breaking his silence, he took the opportunity to thank his supporters in Hollywood.
“Thank you [Whoopi Goldberg],” he tweeted today, Dec. 3. “Thank you [Jill Scott], from the Cosby family.”
Thank you @WhoopiGoldberg.— Bill Cosby (@BillCosby) December 3, 2014

Thank you @MissJillScott, from the Cosby Family.
Both Whoopi, 59, and Jill, 42, have shared their doubts about the claims because of the lack of evidence provided by the accusers.
Prior to expressing his gratitude to his famous defenders, the 77-year-old has refused to address the allegations — even though as many as 16 women have come forward claiming to be victims.

During a Nov. 22 interview with ‘Florida Today,’ Cosby acknowledged people were tired of his lack of response but justified his silence saying, “A guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”
