Film director Judd Apatow said Monday that he would “absolutely” like to see Bill Cosby behind bars following sexual assault allegations from more than two dozen women.

“One thing I do know, is I’m not comfortable with him running around the country doing stand-up like nothing’s happening,” he told standup comic Marc Maron in his WTF podcast, Mediaite reported. “I absolutely would like to see him in jail. That’s where people who commit sexual assaults go.

“I think that when celebrities commit heinous crimes, people don’t want to let go of their love for their work and their lifelong relationship with them,” Mr. Apatow continued. “If we admit that Cosby did this, we’re not allowed to enjoy everything that made us so happy, and I guess in some primal way we don’t want to let go of those memories and those feelings.”

The director then referenced a offhand joke Mr. Cosby made during a stand-up performance, in which he was reported telling a female audience member that she should be “careful” drinking around him.

Mr. Maron expressed outrage that Mr. Cosby was “now using our form and his form [stand-up] to sort of trivialize this thing,” Mediaite reported.
