Bill Cosby to FLORIDA TODAY: I won't mention allegations


MELBOURNE -- Embattled comedian and actor Bill Cosby said offers of cash and prizes to heckle his Friday night performance at the King Center for the Performing Arts only fed a "frat house mentality," and he defended his public silence as more women accuse him of sexual assault.

"I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos," Cosby said during a one-one-one backstage interview with FLORIDA TODAY before his show began with a standing ovation.

Cosby was greeted in Melbourne by a sellout show of supporters — and the national media. A couple dozen media trucks, vans and vehicles descended on the King Center, broadcasting images of his Space Coast fans across the country. A news helicopter briefly circled overhead.

Melbourne resident David Love, a Harris Corp. mechanical engineer, attended the show with five friends.
