The release of Bill Cosby‘s full 2005 depotision has been viewed as a final nail in his coffin, as far as public opinion is concerned.
And it seems that people who have loved and idolized Cosby for years are backing away from him.
Last year, Mark Whitaker wrote a biography of Cosby that was promoted with glowing words of praise from people like Jerry Seinfeld, David Letterman, and Billy Crystal. Seinfeld’s blurb reads, in part, “I know certain religions forbid idol worship. If anyone ever told me I had to stop idolizing Bill Cosby, I would say, ‘Sorry, but ‘’m out of this religion.'”
Well, a rep for both Seinfeld and Letterman told The Hollywood Reporter today, “We were unaware that those quotes were still in circulation, and are asking the publisher to refrain from their future use.”
Cosby’s biggest big-name Hollywood critic has arguably been director Judd Apatow, who’s been going after him all over the place for the accusations being leveled by dozens of women against him.
