Bill Cosby takes stage despite protest over sex-assault claims.

DENVER — About 100 people chanting “Rape is not a joke!” and “No means no!” protested outside a theater in Denver before comedian Bill Cosby took the stage on Saturday, but his first of two performances of the night went on without a disturbance. Beth Ferrier said during the gathering called by Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred that Cosby put drugs in her coffee when she went to see one of his shows in Denver. “I cannot tell you how horrific of a feeling that is,” she said, adding that the next thing she remembered was waking up hours later in the back of her car “practically naked.” Ferrier, 55, has said previously she was assaulted by Cosby. About 25 demonstrators gathered outside the Pueblo show, chanting “no means no” and “Colorado believes the women.” Making his first appearance in Pueblo since a 1996 show at the Colorado State Fair, the 77-year-old was embraced by a mostly middle-aged and older crowd.

Cosby was welcomed to the stage during his first show with a standing ovation and hoots of “We love you Bill!” He did not make any reference to the allegations during the two-hour-long show. “I believe that if you’re not convicted of a crime, then why should you be judged? All it takes is for one person to say something, then you have all these other people wanting to get their 15 minutes of fame,” he said of Cosby’s accusers. More recently, a model who claims Cosby drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 met with Los Angeles police Wednesday to pursue criminal charges. Chloe Goins’ attorney said that his client is the first woman accusing Cosby of sexual misconduct whose case may fall within the statute of limitations.
