Just a day after Bill Cosby’s wife Camille spoke out in defense of her husband in the wake of serious rape allegations, now Bill’s youngest daughter Evin is speaking out to defend her dad.
In a statement to Access Hollywood, Evin addresses the wave of sexual assault allegations against her father.
“He is the FATHER you thought you knew. The Cosby Show was my today’s TV reality show. Thank you. That’s all I would like to say :),” the statement from Evin Cosby reads.
She also took to her Facebook page to voice her opinion on rape.
“Rape is a serious allegation and it is supposed to be taken VERY seriously but so is falsely accusing someone,” Evin Cosby’s post reads. “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.”
Evin Cosby also called into question the validity of the alleged victims’ stories of the supposed incidents.
“Drugged- you can remember the whole damn day but you were drugged? Just sayin. Memory- you can remember you looked at (allegedly) each other, people were starring allegedly remembering your home address allegedly the name you called him allegedly but you were allegedly drugged,” she wrote.
She also expressed her gratitude for the support the family has received.
“I would like to thank EVERYONE that has been sharing, voicing and putting their beautiful positive energy out there for me and my family. There will always be jealous, vengeful and crazy people out there to break anyone down. Every day we wake up and appreciate the love and support from everyone. There’s more positive in life then we think. It’s the BS that can be overwhelming. We keep fighting each day. The challenges in life can only make us stronger.”
We can imagine how difficult it is for a daughter to have her once-‘perfectly wholesome’ father labeled as a rapist in mainstream media.
