In 1970, comedy legends Dick Cavett and Bill Cosby hosted the Emmy Awards together. Fast forward to 2015, and Cosby has become the target of award show digs as a result of recent sexual assault allegations from multiple women:

Cavett sat down on StandUp! with Pete Dominick Thursday to comment on the allegations, which have been made by more than 20 women.

“It’s a terrible tragedy for everybody involved. It’s a great shame. Clearly, it’s a case of extreme mental pathology, and why that wasn’t noted, treated, instead of apparently protected and coddled, I don’t know. But I also feel very sorry for the women whose lives were, in some cases, virtually ruined,” Cavett said.

“I don’t know how sorry to feel for him because I don’t know what his mentality must be to be able to do those things.”
