Camille Cosby, the wife of disgraced comedian Bill Cosby, gave her first interview in 6 years with ABC News. In it, she expressed support for a recent court decision that looks into her husband’s case and has denounced the #MeToo movement as a racist, politically charged movement.
The interview immediately follows the decisions by a Pennsylvania court that said that it will look into two aspects of the Bill Cosby case, accepting the claims put forth by Cosby and his representatives.
Thus, there will be a renewed investigation over the initial prosecution which allowed 5 different accusers to appear as witnesses for this particular case and whether Cosby used Quaaludes – a point of contention that now needs to be proven with a stronger evidence.
Camille argued that the recent decision was the state’s highest court essentially admitting that some of the core aspects of her husband’s case have been made on wobbly evidences and questionable legal practices. The court’s decision was deemed by many as a surprise.
Bill Cosby is currently serving his sentence, which is to be between three and ten years. The specific allegation that put him behind bars was his assault on Andrea Constand in 2004, where the jury found him guilty for drugging and sexually assaulting her.
After expressing great pleasure that the Appeals court has decided to look into her husband’s case, Camille went ahead and attacked feminists and the #MeToo movement in general. Cosby’s case, along with other Hollywood big namers like Harvey Weinstein, are considered emblematic moments of the movement.
In the ABC interview, Camille said that she does not care what the #MeToo activists feel like, mainly because of the inherently racist roots of the movement.
Camille argued that the whole movement has been created and spread by a very particular group of white females – specifically, those females who took advantage of her sex and race against African American males during the time of slavery.
She defended her likening of her husband and the lynching of Emmett Till, whose death in 1921 led to massive violence over the subject of race. Camille said her husband is just another in a long and historical list of black men falsely accused by white women without proof.
