Cosby, prepping a stand-up comedy tour, was originally scheduled to appear on the daytime talk show, but has postponed an interview with Queen Latifah two weeks after comedian Hannibal Buress called the 77-year-old comedian “a rapist” during an Oct. 16 Philadelphia show.
“Mr. Cosby’s scheduled appearance on The Queen Latifah Show was postponed at his request and was in no way related to any of our recent or upcoming scheduled guests,” a spokesperson for The Queen Latifah Show tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Cosby was accused of sexually assaulting 13 women in the past, but those allegations are not new. He has been sued (Cosby settled a lawsuit in 2006), but was never convicted. TMZ first reported the news.
Cosby is also readying a new NBC comedy — a “classic, big, extended family sitcom” — from Sony Pictures Television that will be co-produced by Mike O’Malley and Mike Sikowitz.
