Hugh Hefner Responds to Bill Cosby Sexual Abuse Allegations

Hugh Hefner is responding to sexual abuse claims against Bill Cosby, one of which allegedly took place in his home.

The 88-year-old Playboy founder said in a statement, “Bill Cosby has been a good friend for many years and the mere thought of these allegations is truly saddening.”

Judy Huth filed a lawsuit earlier in the week claiming the 77-year-old actor sexually assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion back in 1975 when she was only 15 years old, which has led to the LAPD opening an investigation.

Hugh‘s statement continued, “I would never tolerate this kind of behavior, regardless of who was involved.”

    Why is a 15 year old in the playboy mansion. They are both pieces of sh!t.

    The lady said Cosby told her to lie about her age. If anyone asked, she was supposed to say she was 19. That’s what she said in her latest interview.

    Hefner is full of BS. He is as Gross as Cosby. POS. No one cares about either of their sick bs.

    Not tolerating it, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

    I have very mixed feelings about these stories. Do I think most of the women are telling the truth, yes some of them. Do I believe the Playboy mansion story, no, there are too many statements she provided that contradict each other. End game, I am sorry to hear this about a man I once admired very much and saw him in Vegas.

    That’s right, because it is much different when teenage girls (and anybody) “willingly, voluntarily” have sex with old men for money, luxury, fame, etc. That can be tolerated very well. In fact, it should be legalized!

    Do not forget that the show business is not the Mecca of decent, honest, moral people. The show business is essentially based on the trickery, so those who cultivate it, what kind of persons can be?
    Everyone knows that Hollywood is full of paedophiles and other kind of monsters.

    Am I the only person who thinks because he was closely associated and such good friends with a man who has made millions from women being objectified and dehumanized as mere sexual objects, that this does not make his case stronger? In fact knowing he was so involved with Hugh makes me think its more likely to be true than not. Hugh is a vile creep and having to defend Cosby because he himself is also likely to be an abuser as well.
