No revisions or future editions are planned for a biography on Bill Cosby. Simon & Schuster vice president and director, Cary Goldstein said that that no further paperback book has been scheduled for Mark Whitaker’s Cosby biography book and that it will be the same for the ebook and hardcover. These were released last September to positive reviews but was shortly greatly criticized for overlooking the many rape allegation claims against Cosby.
Simon & Schuster, publisher of the book, had pulled statements of praise from Billy Crystal, Mary Tyler Moore, and a few other celebrities from advertisements and dedicated online pages on Amazon, Barnes & Noble.com, and other retailers. Some of that was due to the fact that representatives for a number of the celebrities had contacted Schuster Simon & about removing their praise. This comes just on the heels of filmmakers affirming that Cosby had been cut from a documentary about black stuntmen yesterday. Over 40 women have come forward in the past few months to accuse Cosby of sexually molesting them after drugging them with pills. Cosby’s representatives have denied many of the accounts and he has never been charged.
