“Here’s the deal: This is ‘The View’ and that was my opinion,” Goldberg said. “Not any of you threatening me or telling me you’re coming after me because you don’t like what I said is going to change the fact that no one has convicted him, he has not been arrested, and the bottomline is that’s the law–innocent, until proven guilty.”
Goldberg compared Cosby’s case to the boys of the Duke lacrosse team, who were falsely accused of rape. Her voice gradually grew louder as she continued to respond to people attacking her for defending the comedian.
“We all have a very important role to play when it comes to abuse and rape,” Goldberg continued. “If it’s true, the person has to be taken to the nth degree of the world and punished; no one here thinks rape is good, no one here thinks rapists are fun… so don’t come after me like that because I’m sick of this bull.”
She concluded the American court system agrees with her because Cosby hasn’t been taken to jail or even tried: “So back off me!”
In classic Whoopi fashion, she raised her “half a double D” breasts to signal she’s gotten the Cosby frustration off her chest.
