The empty chair sits next to the 35th woman in a recent New York Magazine project shedding light on Bill Cosby’s sexual assaults.

Judd Apatow is not going to let the Bill Cosby scandal go. On last night's Late Night with Seth Meyers, Apatow said that people that claim he should stop criticizing Cosby are more or less saying “Leave a rapist alone.” Apatow has come under fire for his criticism of Cosby—and though he did admit he shouldn’t respond to so many tweets from Cosby defenders, he refuses to stop his ridiculing.
