Bill Cosby’s list of accusers grew on Thursday when two new women came forward to allege they too were victims of the comedian decades ago, bringing the total list of accusers to over 50.
At a news conference held in Manhattan on Thursday, the women say it was decades ago when Bill Cosby drugged and raped them.
A woman who only identified herself as “Elizabeth” said she met the comedian in 1976 when she was a 20-year-old flight attendant, according to FOX411. She met Cosby at a Japanese restaurant for dinner, where she found a glass of sake already waiting for her. Elizabeth claimed she blacked out and woke up in Bill Cosby’s hotel room in Los Angeles. It is there, Elizabeth said, where the comedian forced her to perform a sexual act, reports the New York Daily News.
“He made me kneel down. I don’t want to repeat what happened next. All I know is this was the most horrifying thing that could ever happen to a young woman.”
Elizabeth alleged during the press conference that the comedian later sent her home in his Rolls Royce.
“I was throwing up. The driver told me, ‘You’re not the first one.'”
Charlotte Fox, a 23-year-old aspiring actress when she met Cosby in 1974, said the comedian invited her to a jazz club and then later took her to the Playboy Mansion for a late dinner and drinks.
“We ate and drank. I became ill. The next thing I remember was that I was sort of awake, in a bed, with no clothes on and there was Mr. Cosby, in a robe, crawling from the bottom of the bed. I was incapacitated and couldn’t say no. He engaged in sexual activity with me. It was not consensual. I was afraid to call out.”
Civil rights attorney Gloria Allred, who also attended Thursday’s press conference, admitted the statute of limitations prevents the two new Cosby accusers from filing criminal charges, but maintains it is not too late for these women to add their voices to the chorus of women who have come forward so far.
“They are speaking out now because they want the world to know what they allege they were forced to suffer because they had the misfortune to meet a man that they admired and thought that they could trust, Bill Cosby. It is not too late for them to become empowered women.”
With the addition of Fox and Elizabeth, the total list of Cosby accusers now stands at over 50 women. As the Inquisitr previously reported, three new women came forward last week to accuse the comedian of drugging and/or sexual assault, bringing the total at that time to 49.
