His performance may have received a standing ovation, but Bill Cosby saw underwhelming attendance for his 2015 stand-up debut in Canada, according to reports.
It was his first gig since last November, when allegations of sexual assault reappeared in the press. Though it isn’t Cosby’s first "accusation" rodeo, the allegations seem more severe this time around. While the performance itself received positive reviews, Cosby’s Kitchener show was also met with several protesters, the Hollywood Reporter reveals.
“That was a misquote, and that is not what I said,” the actress told ABC. “What I said is that this is not about the women. This is about something else. This is about the obliteration of a legacy.”

More than a dozen women have stepped forward to accuse Cosby of sexual assault. As a result, Cosby has suffered a number of professional setbacks, including NBC canceling a potential sitcom and Netflix postponing a comedy special. The comedian was slated to star in both projects.
Since Rashad's interview, Cosby's reps have yet to comment.
