Judd Apatow to Whoopi Goldberg: Stop Supporting Bill Cosby
By Raphael Chestang
Whoopi Goldberg has been vocal about withholding judgment regarding Bill Cosby's sexual assault allegations and presuming his innocence, but Judd Apatow thinks she should be giving her support elsewhere.
"I believe it is wise to be careful, but at some point we need to support the survivors of his violence," the Trainwreck director tweeted on Thursday.
Earlier this week, Goldberg spoke about the Cosby allegations on The View, following his admission in 2005 court documents that he obtained Quaaludes to give to "young women" that he "wanted to have sex with."
"I don't like snap judgments because I've had snap judgments made on me so I'm very, very careful," she said. "Save your texts, save your nasty comments, I don't care. And I say this because this is my opinion and in America, still -- I know it's a shock -- we're actually innocent until proven guilty. He has not been proven."
Apatow acknowledged that Goldberg may be "trying to be a loyal friend," but he still thinks that she's on the wrong side.
I think @WhoopiGoldberg is trying to be a loyal friend. It is sad that Bill Cosby is so sick that he puts his friends in that position.
