“Your’re a rapist,” yelled one man who was quickly ejected from Cosby’s show in London Ontario, Canada last night. Cosby was performing for the first time since a rape accusation scandal caused a number of cancellations on his “comeback tour” over a month ago. However, aside from this one incident, the show went smoothly by all reports with Cosby actually making light of the rape allegations of over a dozen women that have been levied against him. Per the BBC:

Before being heckled, the comedian had apparently alluded to the allegations against him, many of which accuse Cosby of spiking women’s drinks before assaulting them.

As one female audience member got up from a front row and walked past the stage, Cosby asked where she was going.

When she answered that she was going to the lobby to grab a drink Cosby responded: “You have to be careful about drinking around me.”

The remark was met with loud applause…

One woman reportedly walked out after Cosby made this joke. Outside the show, protesters braved the frigid weather to bring attention to the accusations against Cosby. TC mark
