ONE of The Cosby Show stars has bro­ken ranks with for­mer cast­mates, say­ing “of course Bill Cosby is guilty” of rape, as Barack Obama weighed into the scan­dal.

Joseph C. Phillips, who played Martin Kendall, the hus­band of Cosby’s on-screen daugh­ter, Denise (Lisa Bonet), has writ­ten a blog post en­ti­tled “of course Bill Cosby is guilty”.

Phillips says claims that Cosby had drugged and raped as many as 40 women had left him feel­ing con­flicted be­cause of his adu­la­tion.

Mean­while, the US Pres­i­dent weighed in to the Cosby scan­dal.

“I make it a pol­icy not to com­ment on specifics of cases ... I’ll say this: if you give a woman, or a man, for that mat­ter, with­out his or her knowl­edge, a drug, and then have sex with that per­son with­out con­sent, that’s rape.’’
