Bill Cosby’s Spokesman Says the Comedian Thinks Prison Is an ‘Amazing Experience’

Bill Cosby has a unique perspective of his time in prison so far: He's calling it "amazing". "He said they told him if he was going to continue to fight for civil rights, something like this was bound to happen, and he's been preparing for it and he knows he's in prison not for rape, but for infidelity", Wyatt told Washington Informer.

"Despite the circumstances, he said this is an unbelievable experience", Wyatt told NBC 10 Philadelphia in a series of interviews published this week.

In the freaky statement, Cosby says he'll "never have remorse", blames his verdict on a "corrupt Judge", and calls himself a "political prisoner" akin to "Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela" and others. Wow.

What adjective do you think Bill Cosby uses to describe his prison experience?

And Wyatt had some updates on what that experience is like for the 81-year-old, who is four months into a 3- to 10-year sentence for sexual assault.

Cosby, who is being held at the State Correctional Institution-Phoenix around 30 miles outside of Philadelphia, was moved into the prison's general population two weeks ago, CNN reported. In the TV interview, Wyatt states that Cosby is in "mentally strong". He is forgoing bread and desert, and "hasn't drank any coffee since he's been in there", Wyatt explained.

Reporters asked her the importance of that phrase, and the young singer remained enthusiastic and unapologetic. They're artists that I love and admire, and I'm so glad to be able to share that with them".

Wyatt also said Cosby was unapologetic.

He believes it was the political aspirations of a district attorney and a judge that landed him in prison, according to the statement. He said The Cosby Show star rinses off his prison food in a cup of water before every meal to reduce his salt intake.

The case came after dozens of women came forward with accusations that Cosby had drugged and assaulted them in similar incidents over his lengthy career atop the comedy world.

He said Cosby's wife, Camille, has not visited her husband at the maximum-security SCI Phoenix facility outside Philadelphia - by Cosby's choice.

Wyatt did not explain how Cosby did that however, since he was removed from the general population at that time.
