Camille Cosby also stated in her statement that the media should take into consideration that Rolling Stone just published a retraction article about their rape story that happened in UV. She said that people should really consider who the real victim is in such stories.
Bill Cosby, the 77 years old comedian has been thrashed through the media as multiple celebrities came through with allegations against him. These allegations included drugging and raping these women. The reports have ranged for 40 years back and the lawsuit building against him is definitely a battle in court, especially for attorneys Martin Singer and John B. Schmidt. They have told Bill to keep quiet in all kinds of media contact after Bill expressed his wish for black media to maintain neutrality in his case.

The silence code does not apply to his wife though. Camille Cosby released a statement that was published by CBS News. The statement starts with Camille Cosby favoring her husband as a kind, loving and generous man as the viewers have seen him to be over the years. Camille said that she is still very much in love with him as he is a great husband, father and friend.
She said that she didn’t like how the media had portrayed her husband for the past few months. She knows that her husband is not capable of such heinous crimes. She expressed her concerns that different organizations and companies were thriving off on false accusations upon her husband and no body is caring to cross check the statements of the women alleging her husband on national television.
She compared the allegations routed by and in media with the rape story published by Rolling Stone magazine. The story highlighted the account of a girl gang raped by some fraternity members. The nature of the story however presented the girl’s friends in a very unnerving light to which they protested. The story ultimately was proven to be written wrong but not before it had spurred a countrywide discussion on alcohol use, sexual harassment and fraternity and sorority systems in universities. Rolling Stone did publish a retraction article apologizing to the concerned people and the story received no more attention.
Until Camille pointed it out and drew comparisons. She said that although the story was horrible and she would not wish that tragedy to happen to anyone, it had the same effects on the students as the media attention has on her husband. The media portrayal of Bill is not helping him and it has to be seen that who the victim here is. If Rolling Stone has accepted its mistake and printed a retraction, maybe its time that the media should consider the allegations they have made against her husband.
