“If a disruption occurs, please remain calm until the matter is resolved and do not confront the person making the disruption,” Cosby said in a statement issued Tuesday, as reported by CTV News. The comedian is going ahead with concerts in Kitchener on Jan. 7, London on Jan. 8 and Hamilton on Jan. 9 after at least 15 women have come forward to claim Cosby sexually assaulted them decades ago.
Most of the women allege he drugged them before they were assaulted. Cosby, who starred as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show from 1984 to 1992, has never been charged in connection with any of the allegations, and through his representatives he has denied them.
Also Tuesday, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said she would not attend any of Cosby’s Ontario dates owing to the “very serious” allegations of sexual assault he faces. The three Ontario concert halls also expect disruption this week, but insist contractual obligations, including a guaranteed fee for Cosby and refunding patrons, leave them unable to cancel his shows.
