Bill Cosby Is Planning a Speaking Tour to Teach Young People How to Avoid Sexual Assault Accusations
"A brush against the shoulder, anything at this point can be considered sexual assault," Cosby's spokeswoman Ebonee Benson told Fox's 'Good Day Alabama'
Published Jun 22, 2017Alleged serial rapist Bill Cosby has had upwards of 50 women accuse him of drugging and sexually assaulting them, and he recently dodged a 10-year prison sentence after a hung jury resulted in a mistrial. While prosecutors are making plans for a follow-up suit, Cosby is making some absurd plans of his own.
As TMZ points out, Cosby's spokespeople Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson appeared on Fox's Good Day Alabama, where they announced that Cosby is planning a series of "town halls" to teach people about sexual assault.
Since we live in the worst possible reality, Cosby's proposed speaking tour doesn't seem to be focused on consent or ensuring that all parties feel safe. Instead, it seems to be all about helping young people learn the laws so that they can avoid sexual assault accusations.
Wyatt said that young people, and especially young athletes, need to "know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things they shouldn't be doing."
"Laws are changing. The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended," added Benson. "So this is why people need to be educated…. A brush against the shoulder, anything at this point can be considered sexual assault. It's a good thing to be educated about the laws."
