Jay Leno On Bill Cosby Allegations: 'I Don't Know Why It's So Hard To Believe Women'

During an interview with NATPE/ Content First, Jay Leno was asked about the sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby. "I don't know why it's so hard to believe women," Leno said. "You go to Saudi Arabia, you need two women to testify against a man. Here you need 25."

Leno also referenced comedian Hannibal Buress' viral video about Cosby and juxtaposed comedy to media perception. "He's a stand-up comedian and he made a flat-out statement that reverberated around the world," Leno said of Buress. "If that had been on television, it would have been edited. But because somebody would put the news out raw and unfiltered — which I think is fantastic — it was a great thing."

You can watch the whole interview below, and see Leno speak at the 16:05 mark.
