Bill Cosby said racism could be fueling the sexual assault charges made against him


Bill Cosby said during a radio interview just weeks before his criminal trial is set to begin that racism and "nefarious" forces could be fueling the allegations of sexual assault made against him, CNN reported.

Cosby spoke with Michael Smerconish on SiriusXM radio, saying, "Nefarious is a great word. And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that."

The interview appears to be a part of a media blitz designed to begin swaying opinion weeks before the trial is set to begin.

On Monday, two of Cosby's daughters released statements that ran on other radio shows, blaming the media for hurting their father's reputation. 

"My father has been publicly lynched in the media," said Ensa Cosby in an audio recording. 

"I will be the first to say that the acts of which my father is accused are unthinkable knowing the man who is my dad," Erinn Cosby said in her statement.

Not many on social media are thrilled with Cosby's theories.
