one thing there is no confusion on is that many are still ups-et with Phylicia Rashad.
The newly appointed Howard University dean has been a target ever since, with many calling for the university to f*** her.
Cosby has since responded to this in a twitter exchange today with singer Stephanie Mills. On June 30th, Rashad’s now deleted tweet read “FINALLY!!!! A ter!ibl! wr-ong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!” This was her response to the news that her former television husband had been freed.
Cosby’s case was thrown out on a technically following some mi!han*ling with the statement used to co*vict him. According to the New York Post, “Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned Bill Cosby’s conviction.
Wednesday after finding an agreement with a previous ccprevented him from being charged in the case.” Phylicia Rashad has stood by Cosby since day one.
Following her initial statement, Rashad followed it up clarifying that while she was happy her friend is free, she still stands with vi*ti*s. She claims her post was in no way meant to be insensitive to their truth, noting that she knows first hand from friends and family how these type of instances can ruin lives.
Howard was also forced to release a statement, distancing themselves from Rashad and her stance while promising their loyalty to women who have been affe-cted.
They said “Howard will stand with su*viv!rs and challenge systems that would deny them justice, we have full confidence that our fac-ulty and school leadership will live up to this s-acr-ed commitment.”
In response to mounting pr-essure to fire Rashad, singer Stephanie Mills chimed in asking Howard to also return the millions of dollars that Cosby has donated over the years. Cosby responded to the tweet saying Thank you @iamstephaniemills your voice has always been powerful!”
