“That song is irresistible,” said Wood, who joked people were sitting “watching the news all angry” but then forgot about the serious nature of the allegations as soon as the tune came on.
“Stop playing his music and just tell us what he did,” Wood urged, before using footage of disgraced comedian Bill Cosby ― who is now serving prison time for a 2004 sexual assault ― to prove his point.
