Bill Cosby issues statement about Cobb show

COBB COUNTY, Ga. – Bill Cosby has issued a statement about his upcoming show in metro Atlanta.

Cosby is set to perform May 2 at the Cobb County Performing Arts Centre. A petition urging Outback Concerts, the promoter renting the venue, to postpone the show has garnered more than 9,500 signatures.

Nearly 40 women have come forward in recent months claiming the comedian sexually assaulted them.

Cosby doesn't address the allegations in the short video about his Cobb Centre performance.

"I'm going to perform because I love it when you laugh, I love it when you smile – I love it," Cosby said.


Brandy Betts, an Atlanta woman organized the petition against the event said, in response to the video, "We are not laughing. We are not smiling. We will be at the Cobb Energy Center May 2 alongside survivors to peacefully protest this show. We will stand in solidarity with all the brave women who have come forward with their stories."

Cosby hasn't been charged any crimes, and the statutes of limitation have expired on most of the allegations.
