Bill Cosby’s surprising release from prison Wednesday was a “beautiful day” not just for the disgraced TV star but for women across the county, his spokesman claimed in an interview with The Post.
“It’s a beautiful day, not just for Bill Cosby because this is about all Americans, making sure that they get justice,” spokesman Andrew Wyatt said after Cosby, 83, was freed from a Pennsylvania prison because his sex-assault conviction was vacated.
“And you know, this was a fight for justice. And that’s what I fight for every day –– justice and vindication for people done wrong by the judicial system.”
The former star of “The Cosby Show” remains defiant despite being accused by multiple women of drugging and sexual assault – and his spokesman claimed Cosby “millions” of women were on his side.
“It’s a beautiful day, and it’s a beautiful day, also for women,” Wyatt said.
“Millions of supporters and millions of women have gotten in touch with us and said ‘We know these women made up these allegations. We know it’s not true,’” he alleged.
“But the beauty of today, another great thing, they can no longer call him a sexual violent predator. No longer call him a rapist. No longer call him these horrible things. He’s now Bill Cosby, an American and national treasure.”
Cosby was convicted on assault charges against Andrea Constand and sentenced to three to 10 years behind bars, but he was let out after a little more than two years because a court found a deal with prosecutors years ago should have prevented him from a criminal trial on those accusations.
Multiple women testified at the trial making similar claims as Constand, while others have stepped forward with a range of sexual misconduct accusations of their own against the man once known as “America’s Dad.”
Cosby’s spokesman also said Wednesday was “a great day for all men, especially for young boys.”
