“It’s so sad and disappointing that successful Black Women are being used to tarnish the image and legacy of successful Black Men, even in death,” Cosby, 82, wrote. “Are these people that are in need of fame, ratings and/or money? On behalf of myself, Camille and my family, thank you, thank you and thank you. My heartfelt prayers are with Kobe and his family, as well as with Michael Jackson and his family. May their legacies live on forever.”
Cosby went on to add the hashtags #ThankYouSnoopDogg, #BetOnBlackLegacy, #StopTearingDownBlackMen, #EnoughIsEnough, #KobeLegacyLivesOn, #GiannaLegacyLivesOn, #MichaelJacksonLegacyLivesOn, and #BillCosbyFarFromFinished.
King slammed her own network for distributing the “out-of-context” clip and said she plans to hold a “very intense” conversation with CBS News executives.
“I’ve been up reading the comments about the interview I did with Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant, and I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I’d be extremely angry with me too,” King said in an Instagram video. “I am mortified. I am embarrassed and I am very angry.”
Cosby is serving a three-to-10-year sentence for his 2018 conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and molesting Temple University staffer Andrea Constand.
