“Whoopi Goldberg continued to defend Bill Cosby on The View Tuesday morning despite the release of a 2005 deposition one day earlier in which the disgraced actor admitted to buying Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women before sex and even giving them to one woman in the past.
‘This is my opinion and in America, still – I know it’s a shock – but you actually were innocent until proven guilty,’ said Goldberg.
‘He has not been proven a rapist.’
Meanwhile, some of the women who have come forward saying they were drugged and raped by Cosby – including models Janice Dickinson and Beverly Johnson – are also speaking out.”
