A woman allegedly raped by Bill Cosby in 1984 fumed over the decision to overturn his sexual assault conviction Wednesday, calling it “bulls–t” and driven by “money and power.”
“It’s bulls–t! I think it’s all bulls—t,” Beth Ferrier, 63, told The Post when asked about her reaction to the fallen funnyman’s release from a Pennsylvania prison.
“It’s money and power. He’s so guilty of what he did. It doesn’t matter, and it sets a precedent,” she said in the phone call. “It’s not OK.”
“Is it because of power and money that he gets to do this?” Ferrier wondered.
“I’m floored by it. He’s guilty. We got him in prison.”
Ferrier, who lives in Denver with her husband, said she feared Cosby would “become world famous again” and profit off writing a book following the ruling that overturned his 2018 conviction.
“What will we get from it? He took everything from us,” she said. “I’m anxious to see what comes of this. He is guilty, I lived through it.”
The former aspiring model, who was Jane Doe #5 in Andrea Constand’s civil suit against Cosby, said the 83-year-old should now pay financially for his crimes if he’s not going to serve the rest of his three- to 10-year prison sentence.
“He owes money to a victim fund. He should be held accountable,” she said. “He’s yet to apologize.”
The mother of three adult children, including model Kensington Tilo, said she’s been writing a book and involved herself in various activist and charitable causes, including with Habitat for Humanity.
Ferrier, who had a consensual relationship with Cosby before breaking things off, has said she was raped by the comedian after he slipped something in her coffee and she passed out while in Denver.
“I woke up and I was in the back of my car all alone,” she recalled in 2005, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. “My clothes were a mess. My bra was undone. My top was untucked. And I’m sitting there going, ‘Oh my God. Where am I? What’s going on?’ I was so out of it. It was just awful.”
Cosby walked free from a Philadelphia-area prison Wednesday after serving more than two years of his sentence. In overturning his conviction, Pennsylvania’s highest court found a decades-old agreement should’ve barred him from being prosecuted in the first place.
