Hannibal Buress Refuses to Talk Bill Cosby During Interview, Hangs Up
Looks like Hannibal Buress is over Bill Cosby.
According to an article by Morning Call writer John Moser, during an interview Buress was giving to promote his upcoming gig at Sands Bethlehem Event Center this Friday, the comedian refused to talk about the Cosby rape allegations when asked, saying, “Um, let’s keep it moving. I’m burned out on it, man, so let’s talk about something else.”
However, when pressed about the issue, Buress hung up.
Moser wrote that a publicist for Buress stated that “he was just frustrated because there are so many other things that he has going on to talk about.”
Buress and Cosby came under immense media scrutiny after Buress’s October 2014 set at Philly’s Trocadero where he called Cosby a rapist. Since then, numerous women have come forth claiming that Cosby had allegedly sexually molested them. Cosby has denied all allegations and has not been criminally charged with any wrongdoing.
