Talk about strange timing. After a new actress came forward, claiming Bill Cosby raped her several times in the ’80s, the comedian’s planned appearance on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ was canceled.
Bill Cosby, who is facing new allegations of rape, has been removed as a guest from the Nov. 19 episode of The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS. His rep confirmed that the comedian’s scheduled appearance on the show has been canceled.

Bill’s rep confirmed the news to the Associated Press, but he did not say why the guest-spot was canceled.
HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Bill’s rep for comment.
This news comes after Barbara Bowman, a former actress, wrote a Washington Post column, alleging Bill, 77, raped her several times in the ’80s. And this isn’t the first time Barbara has made these disturbing allegations.
In 2006, Barbara talked to PEOPLE about how Bill allegedly assaulted her when she was just 18.

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Bill has been accused of similar allegations many times over the last several years, but they resurfaced when comedian Hannibal Burress called Bill a rapist in October, during one of his stand-up routines.
Twitter users added insult to injury when they mocked Bill with memes, referencing the allegations.
And just in case you forgot, Bill was also set to appear on The Queen Latifah Show in October, but that appearance was canceled.
The comedian will next appear in Comedy Central’s Far From Finished, a concert special airing on Nov. 23.
