Last night, Don Lemon invited Joan Tarshis, one of the numerous women calling out comedian Bill Cosby for alleged rape, to CNN to discuss her claims. (She had also appeared on Lemon’s show on Monday.)
On the show, Tarshis repeated her story: that Cosby had slipped something into her drink back in the late ’60s, and forced himself on her. “I didn’t go to the police because I was 19 years old,” she told him. “I was scared. And I thought nobody would believe me. I’m a 19-year-old girl and he was Mr. America — Mr. Jell-O as I called him. Why would anybody believe me, take my word against his word?”
