New Bill Cosby Accuser Says He Raped Her in the 1970s


Yet another woman has come forward accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault: Casting agent and actress Katherine McKee says that The Cosby Show comedian raped her in a Michigan hotel room in the early 1970s.

McKee told the Daily Mail that she hung out in the celebrity circles of her day and was Sammy Davis Jr.’s “road wife.” One day, there was a boat party and Cosby told her to bring some ribs from a local spot in Michigan and meet him at his hotel room before the party.

‘I remember I walked in the door, and he had a robe and cap on. He took the ribs from my hands and just grabbed me,’ said recalls. ‘It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable.’
McKee says the rest of the night Cosby was ‘rude and cold’ to her for the rest of the night. She never told her famous lover what happened.
‘I didn’t want to put that in Sammy’s head,’ McKee said.

Although she’d never spoken out until now, McKee says she assumed at the time that Cosby was just one of those guys who thought he could take whatever he wanted from women. But as more stories surfaced from other accusers like Beverly Johnson, Janice Dickinson and the scores of others, McKee says it “flushed” out her experience.

Cosby still hasn’t directly addressed the rape allegations outside of encouraging black media to stay “neutral” because… race? That statement came after he shamed a white AP reporter into not asking him about the rape allegations on camera last month. Many of these cases have outlived their statute of limitations, and Cosby has had no criminal charges brought against him for his alleged crimes; he and his camp have done a considerable job of keeping the situation under wraps for decades, which Deadspin chronicled in a piece about Andrea Constand, the first of Cosby’s accusers.

Like Wille D of the Geto Boys said so prophetically (and randomly) last week:

“Your skin color shouldn’t give you a pass when you do something and you violate somebody … I don’t care if you’re a corrupt cop in Ferguson or you’re a beloved actor in Hollywood. If you did it, you need to claim it.”
