Changes Cosby stance

Makes Statement

In a conversation with ABC News chief legal analyst Abrams, Goldberg says:

If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion, I got to say all of the information that’s out there kind of points to guilt.

Goldberg recently said she had received threats for staunchly standing by Cosby and joins Abrams in encouraging viewers to contact their legislators to have statute of limitation laws changed for rape cases. She also has a direct message for Cosby:

It looks bad, Bill. Either speak up or shut up.

Defends Cosby

Makes Statement

Goldberg defends Cosby on The View, compared Cosby’s case to the boys of the Duke lacrosse team:

Here’s the deal: This is The View and that was my opinion. Not any of you threatening me or telling me you’re coming after me because you don’t like what I said is going to change the fact that no one has convicted him, he has not been arrested, and the bottomline is that’s the law–innocent, until proven guilty…We all have a very important role to play when it comes to abuse and rape. If it’s true the person has to be taken to nth degree of the world and punished; no one here thinks rape is good, no one here thinks rapists are fun… so don’t come after me like that because I’m sick of this bull.

Skeptical of rape accuser

Makes Statement

Quite honestly I am sorry having been on both sides of this where people allege  that you do something doesn’t matter now. I have a lot of questions for the lady, maybe she will come on.

I met him ten years before I met you because he used to come to the comedy store in San Diego and we would improvise. I mean it was Robin Williams he used to do Mork and Mindy and when he saw me he said ‘Boy, you grew up!’

Whoopi Goldberg interview


Hall interviews Goldberg on The Arsenio Hall Show. They talk about her meeting with Spielberg and her role in the The Color Purple. They also talk about a show that she pitched to called BleeT which deals with assimilation.

He understood that is was about. If we over assimilate people we want, we demand people be exactly as we want them to be and forget to let them be themselves and their culture and be part of ours. But it’s a blend!

When I did my show they expected something completely different and of course couldn’t give it to ’em. But that’s not what you did you didn’t promise anything you didn’t deliver.
