Bill Cosby tells woman at show 'be careful about drinking around me'

During his stand-up performance Thursday night in Canada's London, Ontario, Bill Cosby reportedly made light of recent allegations of sexual assault against him, telling a female audience member "you have to be careful about drinking around me."

Many of the women who have accused Cosby of assault have said he spiked their drinks. National Post reporter Richard Warnica, who was at the show, tweeted that the incident began when the woman got up from her seat and Cosby asked where she was going:

Warnica said that at first the audience gasped, but quickly found the exchange humorous:

Warnica also reported that audience members were given notice upon arriving that "disruptive behavior will not be tolerated and will result in removal, possible legal action and/or banning from the venue." Warnica tweeted that one man was removed from the audience by security while shouting "You are a rapist!" and another was briefly detained after failing to identify himself. (Hat-tip to BuzzFeed.)
