Judd Apatow on new Cosby revelations: ’40 women should have been enough to convince everyone’

With the new revelations about Bill Cosby’s admission in 2005 that he knowingly utilized drugs to sexually assault women, one of the most vocal critics of Cosby is wondering why some in the media are acting so surprised.

Writer, director, and comedian Judd Apatow spoke to Esquire about his thoughts on the new evidence broke by the Associated Press this Monday, revealing that Bill Cosby once admitted that he obtained quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women that he wanted to have sex with:

I don’t think there is anything new here. It is only new to people who didn’t believe an enormous amount of women who stated clearly that he drugged them. We shouldn’t need Bill Cosby to admit it to believe forty people who were victimized by him. I am sure there are many victims who have not come forward. Maybe now more people in show business and all around our country will stand up and tell the people he attacked that we support you and believe you. I also hope Camille Cosby and Phylicia Rashad will now stand with the victims and not with their attacker.

In an Esquire profile of Apatow back in June, the entertainer slammed Cosby’s alleged preying on women, saying, “This guy pulled it off in such a way that he’s not accountable for it. He’s a serial rapist. Everyone knows this is true. But almost nobody says it.”
