Looks like Bill Cosby has at least one person in his corner, Phylicia Rashad is celebrating Bill Cosby’s shocking release from prison.
“FINALLY!!!!” she tweeted. “A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!”
As previously reported, Cosby was accused of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004. He was charged for the incident in 2015 and convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault nearly three years later. On Wednesday (June 30), after serving more than two years in his three-to-10-year sentence, the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court overturned Cosby’s sexual assault conviction, noting that an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged in the case.

Needless to say that tweet has Twitter BIG MAD today.
I’m sure Phylicia Rashad being the new dean of Howard University’s College of Fine Arts will have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on how that program handles student claims of sexual harassment and assault. Yep, nothing to see here, folks. Shut up and dance. https://t.co/MoNjHeFCYW

This is disgusting. Especially given that @PhyliciaRashad will be serving as the new Dean of Howard University’s College of Fine Arts.
Think of how students who are survivors will feel. https://t.co/AaBxFkEri0

I love @PhyliciaRashad but Howard need to remove her cause how safe would you feel if your dean is defending a man who ADMITTED he drugged and raped women.

That Tweet from @PhyliciaRashad is toxic rape enabling at an institutional level. I shudder for the safety of all of the women (and all students, frankly) at @HowardU if this is the public position being taken by an HU dean regarding a man with 50-plus KNOWN victims. Disgraceful. https://t.co/E7n98pFzB4
