Netflix has decided to pull the plug on the upcoming Bill Cosby comedy special that was to air on Nov. 27.
This comes after multiple women have forward with allegations that the comedian sexually assaulted them.
“At this time we are postponing the launch of the new stand up comedy special ‘Bill Cosby 77,’” a Netflix spokesman said on Tuesday.
Janice Dickinson is the latest to step forward with allegations against Cosby, saying he drugged and assaulted her in the 80s. The model claims that she wanted to write about the assault in her 2002 autobiography, “No Lifeguard on Duty,” but his lawyers forced Dickinson and her publisher, HarperCollins, into leaving the incident out.
Amidst the controvery, Cosby still has an NBC sitcom on the table. It will be another family show “about a patriarch of a multi-generational family who shares his many years of wit, wisdom and experience to help his daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren navigate their complicated modern lives.”
NBC has yet to say whether or not they are canceling their deal with Cosby.
