Bill Cosby’s Publicist Clarifies Actor’s Comments On R. Kelly Being ‘Railroaded’ In Trial: Those Were My Words, Not Mr. Cosby’s

Update #1 (Oct. 1): Bill Cosby’s publicist is setting the record straight on remarks the actor appeared to make concerning the guilty verdict against R. Kelly. 

Taking to Bill Cosby’s Instagram, Andrew Wyatt wrote,

“As the publicist of Mr. Cosby, I have the right to my opinion and my opinion is not a reflection of Mr. Cosby’s. Yes, I feel that Robert Kelly was railroaded and those were my words, not the words of Mr. Cosby. I will continue to reflect my views because the 1st Amendment allows me the same privileges as the media. Thank you very much.”

In addition to systemic racism, Cosby also blames Gloria Allred, who has represented victims in both Cosby’s and Kelly’s cases.

As previously reported, on Monday, Sept. 28th, 2021, singer R.Kelly was found guilty on all counts of racketeering and sex trafficking charges.

In his trial prosecutors alleged,

“[R.Kelly] traveled throughout the United States and abroad to perform at concert venues…and to recruit women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity with Kelly.

Following testimonies from dozens of witnesses who accused him of having sexual relationships with underage girls and subjecting them to sexual and physical abuse, the six-week trial came to end when the jury, which consisted of six women and seven men, found the ‘Step In the Name of Love’ singer guilty.


Although Kelly is facing 10 years to life in prison, Whyatt is confident he will not face prison time and will be free like Bill Cosby.
