Reacting to Bill Cosby‘s Tuesday three to ten years sentencing for sexual assault, publicist Andrew Wyatt has described the court’s decision as ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’.
After the sentence. Cosby who admitted drugging women during his prime showed no visible reaction to the sentence, which was close to the maximum that could be imposed. He remained seated in the courtroom, chatting quietly with his lawyers and two friends during a recess.
Variety reports that while speaking outside the courthouse on Tuesday, Cosby’s publicist said: “This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States.”
He further blamed it all on “white women who make money off accusing black men of being sexual predators”.
Wyatt added: “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened? Mr Cosby is fine. He’s holding up well. Anyone who wants to say anything negative, you’re a joke as well.”
Andrew Wyatt isn’t the only one who feels that the court didn’t give a fair verdict. Cosby’s wife through a spokesperson accused the prosecutors of using “falsified evidence.” He added.
Below is the reminder of some of the women who came forward in 2015 as his victim.
Among the women who accused Cosby of assault, the sentence was accepted with a mix of emotions, though mostly relief. There was a former supermodel, an ex-Playboy bunny, and the former wife of Alan Ladd. Several of the women who testified at trial, to show a pattern of similar conduct by Cosby, were also there.
