LONDON, Ontario (AP) — Bill Cosby has jokingly warned a woman in the audience during a show in Canada to be careful drinking around him.

Cosby made the remark Thursday at his second performance in a row after a string of cancellations that followed sexual assault allegations from more than 15 women. Some of the women accused Cosby of drugging them by slipping something in their drinks before he assaulted them.

A woman who got up from one of the front rows and walked past the stage was asked by Cosby where she was going. When she answered that she was going to the lobby to grab a drink Cosby responded: “You have to be careful about drinking around me.” The remark was met with loud applause.
