After refusing to comment on the long string of sexual-assault allegations against him, Bill Cosby briefly addressed the claims during a Good Morning America interview this morning. “I have been in this business over 52 years and I have never seen anything like this,” he admitted. “Reality is the situation, and I can’t speak.” Cosby is currently working alongside the Black Belt Foundation on a campaign to aid schools in the poorest parts of Alabama, and on Friday, he will lead a group of Selma high-schoolers across the Edmund Pettus bridge. He told GMA that despite the 40-plus allegations, his message to young people is still worth listening to: “My point is, okay, listen to me carefully, I’m telling you where the road is out. I’m telling you where as you’re driving you’re going to go into water and it looks like it may only be three inches but you and your car are going to go here. Now, you want to go here, or you want to be concerned about who’s giving you the message?”
