- “On my Birthday, I wholeheartedly thank you for your support, thank you for fighting for my freedom, and thank you for staying grounded and on the case
Bill Cosby shared a message to his supporters to celebrate his 84th birthday on Monday, a day after Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele insisted that the comedian belongs back in a Pennsylvania prison.
Cosby’s 2018 sexual assault conviction was overturned by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court last week after it found that an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged in the case.
To celebrate his birthday, Cosby, who continues to deny any wrongdoing, thanked his supporters for their support.
“On my Birthday, I wholeheartedly thank you for your support, thank you for fighting for my freedom, and thank you for staying grounded and on the case,” Cosby said in a statement to supporters.
The comic additionally shared an image of himself, standing collectively together with his fingers in a white sweatshirt that learns “Hello Friend” in multicoloured letters.
Cosby’s celebration of his newfound freedom comes days after multiple women who had previously accused him of sexual assault gathered at Independence Mall in Philadelphia for a vigil to do the exact opposite. The women united to protest Cosby’s release from prison.
The group carried signs that read, “Bill Cosby: America’s Predator,” and, “Serial Rapist Cosby Freed = No Justice.”
At least three women who have accused Cosby of raping them; Lili Bernard, Stacey Pinkerton, and Victoria Valentino were present at the vigil to make their voices heard, according to WCAU.
