Comedian Bill Cosby responded to people outside of court on Tuesday, after the second day of his trial on sexual assault charges, with a "Hey, hey, hey" - the well-known greeting he popularized as '70s animated character Fat Albert.
Andrea Constand walks from the courtroom after testifying at Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Tuesday, June 6, 2017.
The attorney who is representing the slew of women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault was kicked out of court after her cell phone rang during the proceeding. Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting C.
The playing of the tape coincided with the appearance on the witness stand of Gianna Constand, who proved to be a significant prosecution ally and a formidable adversary for Cosby's defense team.

Bill Cosby has arrived at a suburban Philadelphia courthouse for the third day of his sexual assault trial.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys have battled back and forth, arguing whether Constand and Cosby had a romantic relationship, which would negate her claims of an assault.
The then-30-year-old director of women's basketball at Temple University - where Cosby was serving on the board of trustees - said she had asked the television star if the pills were herbal and he indicated that they were. Johnson, her mother, Patrice Sewell, and her lawyer, Joseph Miller, were permitted to take the witness stand to offer details of Cosby's alleged violation of Johnson while she was an employee of the William Morris Agency, according to Jezebel.
Breaking down in tears, she told the courtroom, "They were good friends".
When Gianna Constand heard about her daughter's accusation of sexual assault against Bill Cosby in early 2005, she quickly confronted the comedian during an nearly two-hour phone call.
Ms Constand says she went to his home to seek career advice after coming to regard the pioneering black comedian, movie actor and television star as a mentor. "Mom, she even had an orgasm'".

Tim Cook also finally followed up on years of interviews in which he said that Apple was interested in augmented reality . At just under 7 inches tall, HomePod can be placed nearly anywhere in the home and is available in white and space gray.
The accuser's testimony marked the first time she had spoken publicly about the incident.
"I wanted him to stop", she told the jury.
Cosby is charged with aggravated indecent assault.
For years Cosby was feted by millions as "America's Dad" for his role as a lovable obstetrician and father on The Cosby Show.
In fiery and captivating testimony, Andrea Constand's mother, Gianna Constand, detailed Wednesday her two-plus hour phone call with Bill Cosby after learning that he allegedly assaulted her daughter in January 2004.
But Constand said she was returning calls Cosby made to her university-issued cellphone about the basketball team. He then apologized to Andrea and her mother, Gianna Constand said.
The phone calls lasted less than a minute and involved leaving a message for him, records show.
For months, Cosby's topflight defense lawyers - and even a former Montgomery County district attorney who once investigated her claim - had vowed that her credibility had been irreparably harmed by the way she acted, and the shifting stories she gave police, in the months after her alleged 2004 attack.
Under cross-examination from the defense at the end of the day or what she called "testing my memory about irrelevant things", the testimony of Gianna Constand concluded just after 5:16 PM ET.
Defense lawyer Angela Agrusa homed in on successive statements that Constand gave to law enforcement in January and February 2005 - a year after the alleged assaut - as the 79-year-old disgraced megastar sat in court looking away from his accuser.
