Bill Cosby Slams Howard University After Phylicia Rashad Controversy

Bill Cosby has a lot to say to actress Phylicia Rashad, a dean at Howard University, who faced a lot of flak for defending Cosby.

Recall that Cosby’s conviction was tossed out of the court due to technicalities, and while many people mourned this miscarriage of justice, Rashad took to her Twitter to gloat in support of the disgraced comedian. “FINALLY!!! A terrible wrong is being righted – a miscarriage of justice is corrected,” she said.

This earned her a lot of criticisms, prompting her to apologise and declare support for sexual assault victims, and to also delete the offensive tweet. “My remarks were in no way directed towards survivors of sexual assault. I vehemently oppose sexual violence, find no excuse for such behavior, and I know that Howard University has a zero-tolerance policy toward interpersonal violence,” she wrote.

Yesterday, Cosby released a statement, slamming Howard University for not defending the actress. “Howard University you must support ones Freedom of Speech (Ms. Rashad), which is taught or suppose to be taught everyday at that renowned law school, which resides on your campus,” he said, per Complex.

He continued, “This (sic) mainstream media are the Insurrectionists, who stormed the Capitol. Those same Media Insurrectionists are trying to demolish the Constitution of these United State of America on this Independence Day. No technicality — it’s a violation of ones rights & we the people stand in support of Ms. Phylicia Rashad.”

83-year-old Cosby was freed from prison after serving more than two years of a three-to-10-year sentence after dozens of women accused him of rape and sexual assault. However, on Wednesday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decided that a “non-prosecution agreement” the actor struck with a previous prosecutor should have prevented him from being charged in a case that stemmed from a 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand.
