Note: This petition contains descriptions of assault.
At least 40 women have now come forward to tell their stories of sexual assault by entertainer Bill Cosby.
On Entertainment Tonight, former model Janice Dickinson recounted her experience of Cosby taking her to Lake Tahoe, giving her what she thought was a pain pill, and raping her.
NBC and Netflix have set aside plans for Bill Cosby's upcoming show, but he still has an upcoming show planned. His appearance in Las Vegas and other places have been canceled. Sign this petition to ask promoter Outback Concerts to cancel or postpone Cosby's Cobb Energy Centre show in Atlanta May 2.
I am writing to urge you to cancel your show featuring Bill Cosby due to serious allegations that he has repeatedly violated women.
Five women have come forward to detail the assault they suffered. Instead of treating these accusations seriously, the performer and his legal representatives have attempted to carelessly dismiss them.
NBC and Netflix have canceled his upcoming show. I am asking that you take the same step by canceling his upcoming performance at the Cobb Energy Centre venue. While this may be an inconvenience to you, I believe it would be wrong to help bring this man more success and profit.
Thank you for your consideration.
