NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Newly-released video on Wednesday showed Bill Cosby refusing to discuss sexual assault allegations that have been surrounding him.
As CBS2’s Jessica Schneider reported, when asked about the subject in the Associated Press interview recorded on Nov. 6, Cosby said, “No, no, we don’t answer that,” and, “There is no comment about that.”
Later, he pleaded with the interviewer not even to show the “no comment” response.
“And can I get something from you, that none of that will be shown?” he says in the video.
Earlier Wednesday, NBC is following in Netflix’s footsteps and is shelving plans to develop a new sitcom with Cosby.
The announcement came after model and TV host Janice Dickinson added her name to the women who have accused the comic of sexual assault — accusations Cosby’s attorney calls a lie.
In an “Entertainment Tonight” interview that aired Tuesday, Dickinson said that the 1982 incident occurred in Lake Tahoe, California, where he was performing.
