Bill Cosby spoke out in his first video message to fans since he'd been hit with a barrage of sexual assault allegations. In the short clip, he makes jokes promoting his comedy tour rather than address the over 30 women who've accused him of drugging or raping them. In the video, which Good Morning America aired this morning, the 77-year-old embattled comedian appears to be wearing silky maroon pajamas, sitting on an arm chair and excitedly talking on a rotary phone. It's a bizarre and short clip, and we don't even know who he's talking to on the phone.
Cosby says, "You know I'll be hilarious. Can't wait." He's released a number of written statements saying he's "far from finished," but this is the first time he's been filmed a video saying it as well. He included a note to his fans with the video that reads, "Dear Fans: I hope you enjoy my video message that's filled with laughter. Hey, hey, hey, I'm far from finished."
