Bill Cosby has remained nearly mute about his side of the sexual assault allegations, however when Whoopi Goldberg and Jill Scott both vocalized their support of the legendary actor, he hopped on Twitter to publicly thank them both for their support.
Goldberg publicly defended him “The View”during the cast roundtable discussion. “Quite honestly, look, I’m sorry, having been on both sides of this where people allege that you do something — it doesn’t matter now. The cat is out of the bag, people have it in their head,” Goldberg said. “I have a lot of questions for the lady. Maybe she’ll come on,” Whoopi said in response to Barbara Bowman coming out with allegations against Cosby. She continued, “I hope that there is justice for this lady. I hope somebody gets to the bottom of this, but I’m going to reserve my judgment because I have a lot of questions, as I said. It’s crazy, but I have a lot of questions, because I know we all have friends who have gone through this.”
And Jill Scott tweeted various people, standing by Cosby’s legacy and saying that the media/society is doing what they can to tarnish it. Here’s one of the exchanges:
@JasBaileyTweets sides with Mr. Cosby? No. I side with substantiated proof when media/society is attempting to destroy a magnificent Legacy
