Treinta y cinco mujeres que han acusado a Bill Cosby de agresión sexual aparecen en la portada actual de la revista New York.
La fotografía en blanco y negro de las mujeres sentadas en poses similares aparece en la edición del 27 de julio. El titular dice, “Cosby: Las Mujeres. Una hermandad no deseada”.
Cosby, quien no ha sido formalmente acusado de ningún delito, ha negado reiteradamente las acusaciones.
No obstante, las acusaciones en su contra ganaron atracción en las últimas semanas cuando un documento de 2005 salió a la luz. En este, el comediante adimitía haber comprado “metacualina” en los 70’s, con la intención de drogar a las mujeres y abusar sexualmente de ellas.
Pero Cosby nunca admitió que les suministró el medicamento a las mujeres.
New York Magazine dijo que enviaron emails a cuatro de los abogados y representantes de prensa de Cosby pero no han recibido respuesta.
Cosby no se ha pronunciado al respecto.
Esta edición tiene entrevistas con cada una de las mujeres que lo acusan, que describieron los presuntos incidentes con detalles desgarradores, incluyendo sus dificultades para recibir el apoyo de la gente.
Victoria Valentino, ex estrella de Playboy, describe como Cosby abusó de ella, “Él se acercó a mi y puso una almohada cerca de mi vaso de vino. Él me dijo tomáte esto, te hará sentir mejor, nos hará sentir mejor a todos”.
Victoria Valentino, 72, a former Playboy bunny, was allegedly assaulted by Bill Cosby in 1969. Valentino was dining with her roommate at their usual joint, Café Figaro, where Cosby happened to be part owner. He knew that Valentino’s 6-year-old son had recently died, and he told Valentino’s friend that he thought she could use some cheering up. "He took my roommate and me out to dinner. It was this new hip steak restaurant on the strip near the Whiskey a Go Go called Sneaky Pete’s. He was chatting her up and trying to charm her. And he reached across and put a pill next to my wine glass and said, ‘Here, this will make you feel better,’ and he gave her one. I wasn’t really thinking. I thought, Great, me feel better? You bet. So I took the pill and washed it down with some red wine. And then he reached across and put another pill in my mouth and gave her one. Just after I took the second pill, my face was, like, face-in-plate syndrome, and I just said, ‘I wanna go home.’ He said he would drive us home. We went up this elevator. I sat down, and lay my head back, just fighting nausea. I looked around and he was sitting next to my roommate on the loveseat with this very predatory look on his face. She was completely unconscious. I could hear the words in my head, but I couldn’t form words with my mouth, because I was so drugged out."

La actriz Louisa Moritz, también describió como fue el asalto, “Fueron los 5 minutos más largos que jamás haya experimentado. Yo me sentí apenada. Estaba avergonzada de mi misma”.
Louisa Moritz, 68, an actress, was allegedly assaulted by Bill Cosby in 1971. Moritz was getting ready to appear on the 'Tonight Show' when someone opened the door of her dressing room. “He never knocked. I knew it was Mr. Cosby. I'd seen his picture. He walked in and closed the door behind him. It went on for maybe four minutes, five minutes. But it was the longest five minutes that I ever experienced. And when they called my name, he ran out. When he walked down the stage, he introduced himself as Louisa Moritz. And then a huge laugh. When they called me to go onstage, I was a zombie. He didn't look at me while we were on the show. I didn't look at him. I just felt him. I was afraid to tell anybody. I knew who Mr. Cosby was and that prevented me from telling anybody. I felt ashamed. I was embarrassed to be me."
