Cosby Accusers: He ‘Betrayed the Black Community’

CNN aired an hour-long special tonight talking with several women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault. At one point, all five of them raised their hands when asked about whether Cosby drugged them. Only three could remember being drugged in the first place.

Kristina Ruehli said that none of them had any reason to distrust Cosby. When Don Lemon and Alisyn Camerota brought up the reactions of some black actors and celebrities to the Cosby news, Ruehli said what Cosby did was not just a betrayal of them, it’s a betrayal of the black community.

The other women chimed in in agreement. Ruehli said it affects “every person of color” and this scandal has shown Cosby to be “a fake, a pretender, and behind that mask is a sociopath.”
