Thank you @MissJillScott, from the Cosby Family.— Bill Cosby (@BillCosby) December 3, 2014
Allegations of sexual assault first resurfaced in October when comedian Hannibal Buress accused Cosby of being a rapist during a stand-up set and a video of the performance went viral. Shortly thereafter, Goldberg used her position on The View to say she had a "lot of questions" about the entire situation.
Meanwhile, Scott took to her own Twitter account to defend the actor, posting messages like, "So they've proven the alleged allegations? I didn't know. Will they also be giving him back the millions he's donated?"
Very few of Cosby's former collaborators have come out in support of him, but actress Lisa Bonet, who played Cosby's daughter on the The Cosby Show,recently shot down rumors that she trashed Cosby on Twitter, claiming the account was fake.
Raven-Symoné also denied rumors that he ever assaulted her.
