    Bill Cosby referenced the #MeToo movement after a dinner at an Italian restaurant in Philadelphia.

    The news site says he shook a reporter's hand and said "Please don't put me on #MeToo," the social media movement denouncing sexual assault.

    When asked about his April retrial on charges he drugged and molested a woman in 2004, he replied, "We're ready."
