CO-STAR SAYS COSBY ‘GUILTY’
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.’’
