Bill Cosby has been accused of rape, but is refusing to respond to the allegations.
The legendary actor was accused by former model and actress Barbara Bowman, who wrote an op-ed for the New York Post claiming he raped her in the ’80s.
And during an interview with NPR, Cosby refused to answer any questions about the report.
NPR host Scott Simon asked the Cosby Show star, 77, about the shocking claims that have resurfaced recently while interviewing Cosby and his wife Camille about an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art.
“This question gives me no pleasure, Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days,” Simon asked the legendary actor. “You’re shaking your head no. I’m in the news business. I have to ask the question. Do you have any response to those charges?”
Cosby continued to his shake his head and stayed quiet about the subject. “There are people who love you who might like to hear from you about this,” Simon continued, with no response. “I want to give you the chance.”
Cosby’s appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman for Wednesday, Nov. 19 has been cancelled amid these allegations.
