There’s a video compilation of a plethora of women who’ve accused Bill Cosby of drugging and raping them that’s getting attention on YouTube, with several copies of the video floating around the web and getting press on websites like Jezebel.
As of this writing, the most buzzed about version of the YouTube video compilation of the women who’ve said Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them – one titled “The Women Who Came Forward Accusing Bill Cosby Of Rape! (Video)” – currently sits at the YouTube standard “301+ views” that YouTube gives to those videos that are so popular at the time and getting so many views that YouTube pauses the view count to ensure the video is really going viral.
Towards the end of the YouTube video, at the two-minute, 50-second mark, Dr. Drew shows his panel a video snippet of a clip from 1991, wherein Cosby starts talking about “Spanish Fly,” a substance known to be used to drug women so that a person can have their way with them. This isn’t the first time Bill Cosby has talked about “Spanish Fly,” but it is the first time video of Cosby speaking about the drug has surfaced, because previous reports of Cosby talking about “Spanish Fly” have featured an older comedy routine with an audio version only from 1969, as reported by the Village Voice.
To watch Bill Cosby talk about “Spanish Fly” in the 1991 interview with Larry King, with Cosby smiling throughout the segment, seems creepy to watch in light of all the allegations of drugging and sexual assault that now dog Cosby.
“Spanish Fly was the thing that all boys from age 11 on up to death – we will still be searching for Spanish Fly. The old story was if you put a little drop on the head of a pin and you put it in a drink and the girl would drink it and – hello, America!”
Meanwhile, also getting plenty of attention is news that Bill Cosby has paid six figures to private investigators who can dig up dirt on his rape accusers in an effort to discredit them – as reported by the Inquisitr – instead of simply responding directly to the public, as Judd Apatow has suggested Cosby should do. The New York Daily News reports Apatow is one of the famous faces calling on Bill Cosby to be honest in the wake of 30 sexual accusers coming forward.
“It is not extortion when most of the accusers do not want anything. There are much older woman who suffered for decades. I always wonder why some people try so hard to not believe women who have been assaulted. What is the root of that?”
