NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — The list of canceled shows is growing for embattled comedian Bill Cosby, as Foxwoods in Connecticut and the Capitol Theatre in Yakima, Washington, have pulled the plug on upcoming appearances.
Cosby was set to perform at the Capitol on Nov. 29th, and Foxwoods on January 31st. These dates join the list of previously canceled shows in Las Vegas, Arizona, Champaign, Illinois, Reno, Nevada, Florence, South Carolina, and at the Choctaw Casino Resort in Oklahoma.
Despite the cancellations, at least 29 dates remain on Cosby's current tour itinerary, running through May 2015.
Cosby has become an increasingly controversial figure in recent weeks amidst a new round of accusations form a growing list of women, including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress Michelle Hurd, who alleged that Cosby acted inappropriately with her in her dressing when she appeared on an episode of The Cosby Mysteries in 1995.
“It started innocently, lunch in his dressing room, daily, then onto weird acting exercises were [sic] he would move his hands up and down my body,” Hurd alleged in a post on her Facebook page. “I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone what we did together (he said other actors would become jealous) and then fortunately, I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened. At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, ‘No, I’ll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened.’”
While Cosby has not commented on any of the allegations, his attorney has denied the claims, characterizing them as "unsubstantiated" and "decades old" and suggesting that the media has been exacerbating the matter.
Cosby has never been criminally charged in connection with any of these claims. – Staff Writers
