Actress Phylicia Rashad is speaking out in support of comedian Bill Cosby.
The beloved TV mom (known as Claire Huxtable on the Cosby Show) spoke exclusively to ABC News correspondent Linsey Davis via “World News Tonight with David Muir.”
Rashad called Cosby a “genius” who is “generous and kind”. Further showing support she revealed: “What has happened is declaration in the media of guilt, without proof.”
When asked about an alleged quote dismissing the accusers, she denied ever saying so and called it a misquote. “What I said is that this is not about the women, this is about the obliteration of legacy, I am a woman I would never say such a thing.”
