Malcolm-Jamal Warner Is Right On Cosby

malcolm-jamal warner

Malcolm-Jamal Warner is correct about Cosby.


 
Malcolm-Jamal Warner inquires why Bill Cosby’s work has been pulled from TV while Woody Allen’s has not been. “There is no one that’s calling for Woody [Allen’s] movies to be pulled off the air,” Warner said on “The Real” TV show, which discussed “The Cosby Show” being pulled off the air.
 
Personally, I do not watch anything from Woody Allen nor Roman Polanski for that reason. What Malcolm-Jamal Warner misses with Bill Cosby is the hypocrisy there that wasn’t with Woody Allen or Roman Polanski that’s contributing to the backlash.
 
Cosby held himself up as a role model and lectured other people about how they weren’t meeting his moral standards. Woody and Roman did not. Also Allen and Polanski were accused by one person, whereas Cosby is accused by dozens and dozens of women.

On the other hand, I think his point is valid. While Cosby’s public persona somehow makes what he did worse, that doesn’t necessarily make it true unless we’re to introduce personality conditions to mitigate horrific crimes. Is it worse if a priest molests a kid as opposed to a stranger? No, they’re both terrible sex crimes regardless of the perp. Kipp Jones regails the Woody Allen and Roman Polanski details:
 

According to Vanity Fair’s Maureen Orth, who authored two in-depth articles about Allen’s alleged abuse of Dylan, the case against Woody Allen was strong:

Allen had been in therapy for alleged inappropriate behavior toward Dylan with a child psychologist before the abuse allegation was presented to the authorities or made public. Mia Farrow had instructed her babysitters that Allen was never to be left alone with Dylan….

Allen refused to take a polygraph administered by the Connecticut state police. Instead, he took one from someone hired by his legal team. The Connecticut state police refused to accept the test as evidence….

In his 33-page [custody] decision, Judge [Elliott] Wilk found that Mr. Allen’s behavior toward Dylan was “grossly inappropriate and that measures must be taken to protect her.” The judge also recounts Farrow’s misgivings regarding Allen’s behavior toward Dylan from the time she was between two and three years old. According to the judge’s decision, Farrow told Allen, “You look at her [Dylan] in a sexual way. You fondled her . . . You don’t give her any breathing room. You look at her when she’s naked.”….

The state attorney, Maco, said publicly he did have probable cause to press charges against Allen but declined, due to the fragility of the “child victim.” Maco told me that he refused to put Dylan through an exhausting trial, and without her on the stand, he could not prosecute Allen.

Allen later contended that Farrow had coached 7-year-old Dylan into making the accusation as a form of payback against him for his romantic relationship with Mia’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

Judge Wilk disagreed with that conclusion, stating “there is no credible evidence to support Mr. Allen’s contention that Ms. Farrow coached Dylan or that Ms. Farrow acted upon a desire for revenge against him for seducing Soon-Yi.”

Farrow was awarded sole custody of their children, and Allen lost all subsequent appeals against her and was ordered to pay more than $1 million of her legal fees.

Years later, their daughter Dylan, now an adult, detailed the alleged molestation in a letter published in The New York Times in February 2014:

When I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me.

He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we’d go to Paris and I’d be a star in his movies.

As Orth notes, Dylan’s account of the alleged assault “was consistent with the testimony of three adults who were present that day” and was partially corroborated by several adult witnesses at the time of the investigation. Several witnesses have described unusual and inappropriate behavior between Allen and young Dylan that day and prior to this alleged incident, noting that Allen seemed to have an “obsession and strange intensity” with the 7-year-old.

While the case against Allen was undeniably strong, he was never tried.

In 1977, Polanski was charged for sexually assaulting a young girl in Los Angeles, California, after giving her a Quaalude and plying her with champagne. Despite being drugged, 13-year-old Samantha Gailey (now Samantha Geimer) repeatedly told Polanski “no” as he proceeded to rape and sodomize her, according to her grand jury testimony.

Like Cosby with many of his alleged victims, Polanski had lured Geimer into this situation on the pretense of helping her advance her career. Polanski eventually pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, but fled to Europe before he could be sentenced. To date, there have been numerous attempts to have Polanksi extradited to the United States to face justice for preying on Geimer.
