Phylicia Rashad Defends Bill Cosby Against Sexual Assault Allegations

Bill Cosby’s longtime onscreen wife, Phylicia Rashad, came to his defense today saying that we should just “forget” the women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault.

Rashad told Showbiz 411: “Forget these women … What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.”

The actress said that she doesn’t believe the women, namely Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson, who have accused Cosby of sexual assault. As proof, Rashad claimed that Camille Cosby would never sit idly by as her husband assaulted women.

Rashad said: “his is a tough woman, a smart woman. She’s no pushover.”

So where did these allegations come from? According to Rashad, someone is trying to keep Cosby off TV .

Rashad said: “Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV … And it’s worked. All his contracts have been cancelled.”

Phylicia Rashad’s comments created quite a stir online. Many people came to Twitter to express their bewilderment about the actress’ comments.
