After being found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, Bill Cosby is now serving a prison sentence of three to 10 years. But regardless of the conviction, the former comedian is still trying to claim innocence.
In an interview with NBC 10, Cosby’s publicist, Andrew Wyatt, said, “When I visit him, it’s nothing sad about it.” adding that “He’s not sad. He’s not remorseful because he did nothing wrong.”
Through Instagram, Cosby himself confirmed this, writing, “Here’s why I, have ‘no’ remorse and will never have remorse: I was given a deal; I settled out of court for $3.8 million dollars; I waived my 5th amendment rights; I was declared Not Guilty in 2005 by the Commonwealth – never charged. However, a low-life District Attorney and a corrupt Judge needed me Guilty now. Not for justice, but for their political aspirations.” He continues to insist that he is the victim in all this, due to his “political beliefs.” He even compared himself to “some of the Greatest Political Prisoners—Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis.” Adding that, “I stand upright as a Political Prisoner and I Smile. The Truth is Strong!”
Prior this, Andrew also claimed that Cosby was imprisoned for racist and sexist reasons. Clearly, Cosby is full of himself. He’s still trying to discredit the 60 women who have bravely come forward with their accounts, and what’s more, painting himself as a brave hero merely standing for his values. Needless to say, we continue to stand behind his many accusers.
