Bill Cosby’s spokesman Andrew Wyatt has compared comedian’s sexual assault conviction to the white police killings of black people across America in a new video he released ahead of his upcoming hearing.
Mr Wyatt appeared in a brief video posted on Cosby’s social media accounts on Friday, in which he begins by saying “These aren’t normal times.”
“In this 21st century, we have witnessed the senseless murders of black men and women at the hands of a few bad law enforcement officers, but not all. We have witnessed the unjust conviction and incarceration of a true American treasure and citizen, actor-comedian Bill Cosby, and we are witnessing a pandemic, unlike anything we have seen in our lifetime.”
Mr Wyatt, however, ask followers to tune into a virtual hearing in Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday, when Cosby’s lawyers will make oral arguments in the appeal of his unjust 2018 conviction.
“Again, on behalf of myself, and Mr and Mrs Cosby, we thank you for your love and support and may the most high God continue to keep you and your family safe during these difficult times,” Mr Wyatt concluded.
Bill Cosby is serving a three- to 10-year jail time for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004. Meanwhile, Camille Cosby, the comedian’s wife, 56, has railed against her husband’s unjust case, accusing the judge of racism.
