The latest news on Bill Cosby’s rape allegations looks to have confirmed what many have accused the comedic icon of doing. Released court documents dating back to 2005 have revealed that Cosby once admitted to using ‘quaaludes’ as an attempt to sleeping with women, NBCNews points out.
Bill Cosby said in a 2005 legal deposition that he obtained prescriptions of a powerful sedative to give to women he wanted to have sex with, according to documents released Monday in a Pennsylvania court. The comedian’s testimony was part of a civil suit involving a woman who accused him of drugging her and sexually assaulting her. At one point, Cosby was asked by the woman’s attorney about his use of prescriptions for the pills, known as Quaaludes. “When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?” the lawyer asked. “Yes,” Cosby said, according to the document, which was released after a request by The Associated Press.
The revealing has come as a surprise for some and even has left many Cosby supporters speechless. We were able to find several comedians reactions to the news as well as others. See what they had to say via Twitter below.
The admission by Bill Cosby that he obtained drugs to have sex with women shuts ANY discussion of doubt down. It’s over. Finished.

About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which is ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations.

I ain’t saying Bill Cosby stole all that pussy, but I think he did steal some of it.

A Different World piqued my interest in Black Greek life. The Cosby Show gave me a perspective of a “complete” functional Black family.
