Bill Cosby’s daughter has come to the defense of her comedian father. In a brief statement to Access Hollywood, Evin Cosby says that Cosby is “the FATHER you thought you knew.”
“The Cosby Show was my today's tv reality show. That's all I would like to say.”
The youngest Cosby daughter also took to her Facebook page to decry the allegations made against her father. Yesterday, as model Beverly Johnson appeared on The View, she wrote, “If someone isn’t feeling well…. What you do? Do you A. Call a doctor B. Go to the hospital or C. Can’t believe I called someone BLEEP??? It’s either A or B!”
In another post, Evin wrote that rape allegations are to be taken seriously, but that anyone falsely accusing someone of rape should also be prosecuted. “Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone,” she wrote. “When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim.They are not ONLY destroying innocent people’s life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped.”
In another post, the 38-year-old boutique owner and mother of two encouraged anyone who has been falsely accused of rape to “stand up and say something.”
“There are plenty of them that have experienced being accused of a major crime that they NEVER committed. Let's hear your voice!"
On her boutique's Twitter page, Evin thanked everyone who had supported her family. "It's takes a strong crew to make a strong statement," she tweeted.
