Comedienne Roseanne Barr is speaking out about the sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Barr said that she was unsurprised by the allegations and that it took a man - comic Hannibal Buress - to reignite the issue for the media to cover the stories of sexual assault.

"You know, like every woman in Hollywood, there's hardly any hairdressers or waitresses or working women who don't know somebody. We've all heard it for a long time and it surprises nobody. We all know women who know somebody, if they didn't go through it themselves with Bill Cosby," Barr said.

When asked why nobody has spoken up until now, Barr said that "nobody gives a damn 'til a man says it," referring to Buress.

Barr and Cosby both had hit sitcoms in the 1980s that were produced by the same production company. Barr added that she has hope that Cosby will "make it right," though he continues to dispute the claims.
