Netflix ‘Postponing’ Bill Cosby Comedy Special
As more and more women go public with stories of Bill Cosby raping them, Netflix has decided not to debut his comedy special later this month.
Called “Bill Cosby 77” (to denote the comedian’s age), the stand-up special was set to premiere November 28 on the streaming video service. “At this time,” Netflix said in a statement, “we are postponing the launch.”
At first, Netflix had planned to showcase the special regardless of the rape allegations against Cosby. However, an increasing number of women coming forward (now including former supermodel Janice Dickinson) has swayed the streaming video service in the opposite direction.Tags: Bill Cosby, bill cosby 77, bill cosby rape allegations, comedy, Netflix, netflix comedy special
