Bill Cosby reached out Thursday evening to his 4.1 million Twitter followers, just 24 hours after his arrest on aggravated indecent assault charges. “Friends and fans, Thank You,” he wrote. The 78-year-old comedian and actor was arraigned the day before on the felony charge stemming from a 2004 incident in which Andrea Constand says he drugged and assaulted her. Cosby paid his $1 million bail and handed over his passport Wednesday afternoon. He will be back in court for a hearing on Jan. 14.
CNN also reported Friday that Cosby’s wife, Camille Cosby, will be deposed in a defamation suit after a Massachusetts court denied her motion requesting not to testify. In the civil suit, seven women allege that the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted them.
