Bill Cosby On His Silence: I Don't Have to 'Answer to Innuendos'

Bill Cosby says he's been quiet about the rape allegations he's facing because he shouldn't have to whispers.

"I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos," the 77-year-old said to 'Florida Today' before his show.

"People should fact-check. People shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos."

"The thing is, these people are prodding and pushing people and asking people to have a frat house mentality. Now suppose someone brings a weapon or decided to do more foolishness."

He compared protesters outside his shows to those at a civil rights march, saying: "When you go to a civil rights march or something like that, at least there are meetings and some organization to it and people understand how to behave."

"There may be people coming to the show that don't know exactly what to do; there is no organization to it all."

Meanwhile, a former Playmate has become the 16th and latest woman to allege sexual assault against Cosby.

She claims Cosby drugged her and her roommate, Meg Foster: "It was very clear to me that he was going to assault her while she was asleep or unconscious."

"I reached out, grabbing him, trying to get his attention, trying to distract him. He came over to me and sat down on the love seat and opened his fly and grabbed my head and pushed my head down. And then he turned me over. It was like a waking nightmare."

"In those days, it was always the rape victim who wound up being victimized. You didn't want to go to the police. That's the last thing you wanted to do back then," she says. "You just feel ashamed and dirty even though it wasn't your fault."
