The Associated Press has released video footage of a Nov. 6 interview in which Bill Cosby refuses to acknowledge the sexual assault allegations that have been made against him by saying, “No, no, we don’t answer that.”
The reporter offered the 77-year-old television vet the opportunity to comment on Hannibal Buress’ comments that brought the previous allegations back to the spotlight last month. Bill, while sitting next to his wife of 50 years, responded, “There’s no response. There is no comment about that.”

Later in the clip, he can be heard pressuring the Associated Press to omit the portion of the interview that deals with the allegations. However, as the narrator explains in the video, the AP decided to publish the interview since it was “on the record” and the news agency had made no prior agreements to avoid the subject.
The comedian and his team have ignored the claims made by several women — including “the world’s first supermodel,” Janice Dickinson — who alleged the comedian sexually assaulted them. In a statement released on his website, Bill’s lawyer said, “Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with a comment.”
