Bill Cosby’s publicist, Andrew Wyatt, has described the court’s decision to sentence the disgraced comedian as “racist” and sexist.”
According to Variety, Wyatt said this while addressing presspeople outside the courthouse on Tuesday. “This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States,” he said, further blaming it on “white women who make money off accusing black men of being sexual predators.”
“They persecuted Jesus and look what happened” Mr. Cosby is fine,” he continued, adding, “He’s holding up well. Anyone who wants to say anything negative, you’re a joke as well.”
Bill Cosby was on Tuesday sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison for his conviction on charges of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University women’s basketball administrator Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004.
