Whoopi Goldberg and Raven-Symoné Defend Bill Cosby: ‘He Has Not Been Proven a Rapist’


Bill Cosby's sworn testimony from a 2005 deposition in which he admitted acquiring drugs to slip to women he intended to have sex with is NOT enough for Whoopi Goldberg or Raven Symone to consider him a rapist.


On today’s episode of The View Whoopi Goldberg stood by her claim that Cosby is innocent. She told viewers;

“Save your texts, save your nasty comments, I don’t care. I say this because this is my opinion, and in America still, I know it’s a shock, but you actually were innocent until proven guilty. He has not been proven a rapist.”

Not too far behind was new host Raven Symone who didn't have too much to say, but ultimately echoed Whoopi's sentiments about requiring proof.

“I don’t like to talk about it that much, because he’s the reason I’m on this panel in the first place, he gave me my first job. At the same time, you need the proof. Then I’ll be able to give my judgment here or there.”

What more proof do you need, Raven?
