Bill Cosby Interview Cancelled Following Rape Allegations

Not only did a comedian kick off the legend's nightmare in a set in Philadelphia last week, a 47-year-old woman also claims Cosby raped her repeatedly 25years ago... Which show would want him on air?

Looks like comic genius Bill Cosby won't be getting on the Queen Latifah talk show this week as planned after fresh new rape allegations resurfaced.

Reports say the talk show host and her crew got cold feet after a young comedian and his alleged former rape victim came out firing Cosby for being a serial rapist last and earlier this week.We previously reported that comedian Hannibal Buress, 33, called out Cosby, 77, last week during a stand up set in Philadelphia ... wondering out loud if people remembered Bill had been accused of rape by 13 women over the years. The old news got re-circulated, even though there were not fresh allegations.

A 47-year-old woman also got to the press this week with her story claiming Cosby repeatedly raped her about 25years ago but couldn't come out until Hannibal mentioned Cosby's crimes in his set.According to gossip site TMZ, Latifah honchos didn't want the association so they cancelled on Cosby – who was to promote his comedy tour on the show.

They're particularly sensitive because a video from Latifah's show just went viral, showing a 13-year-old gay kid going crazy on the showafter winning VIP Ru Paul tickets.Cosby has never been criminally charged with sexual assault ... but he has been sued.One of the show's spokesperson however later told TMZ, "Mr. Cosby's scheduled appearance on The Queen Latifah Show was postponed at his request and was in no way related to any of our recent or upcoming scheduled guests."
