- This takes “ride or die” to a whole new level. Even after damning court documents all but confirmed the accusations that comedian Bill Cosby has a tendency to – “allegedly” – roofie women, Cosby’s longtime friend and EGOTer, Whoopi Goldberg, is standing by her man (With a firm grip on whatever drinks are nearby, we hope). “Innocent until proven guilty,” Goldberg stressed during a rant on “The View” Wednesday morning. As more and more celebrities withdraw their support for Cosby, Goldberg is showing no signs of slowing down.
- As it turns out, not everyone is okay with Whoopi openly supporting a man who, in 2005, admitted to giving a woman Quaaludes before sex. Go figure. While ABC has blocked Whoopi from leaving the show in the near future, public backlash may force the network to reconsider.
- So, is Whoopi in the wrong for sticking up for a friend? Or is it time to abandon the Cosby’s sinking ship?
