Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara has spoken out to slam a liberal radio station for claiming that she was “rumored” to be one of Bill Cosby’s victims.
Radio program En Candela made the claim on Friday after a cringe-worthy video surfaced of Cosby interviewing the actress on The Late Show over ten years ago.
“A video of an interview of Bill Cosby and a young Sofia Vergara came out. It’s rumored if she could’ve been one of his victims,” En Candela tweeted out in Spanish, according to Daily Mail.
Vergara didn’t take long to shoot down these claims. Later that same day, she tweeted, “Respect people. Stop inventing nonsense.”
The awkward interview occurred in 2003, when Cosby was guest-hosting for Letterman and Vergara was promoting her film, Chasing Papi. Cosby made it clear he was attracted to Vergara, telling her she made him, “excited.”
“Men look at you, and they think only of sin,” the comedian told her. “What you have on tonight is wonderful. This is just wonderful. When you walked out, many people became attentive.”
