Outspoken Bill Cosby critic Judd Apatow used his book tour last month to be sure the sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby did not disappear.

Here was Apatow's reaction this afternoon on Twitter after the Associated Press broke the news of a 2005 deposition in which Cosby admitted that he "obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women."

Apatow also gave the following statement to Esquire, calling on Cosby's wife, Camille, and his "Cosby Show" wife Phylicia Rashad, to speak up for the victims as well:

I don't think there is anything new here. It is only new to people who didn't believe an enormous amount of women who stated clearly that he drugged them. We shouldn't need Bill Cosby to admit it to believe forty people who were victimized by him. I am sure there are many victims who have not come forward. Maybe now more people in show business and all around our country will stand up and tell the people he attacked that we support you and believe you. I also hope Camille Cosby and Phylicia Rashad will now stand with the victims and not with their attacker.
