Actress Vivica A. Fox is the latest woman to support Bill Cosby in the midst of his sexual assault scandal.
During an appearance on The Meredith Vieira Show, Fox voiced her view on the situation and said that she will continue to support the comedian, who has been accused of sexual assault by over two dozen women.
“I worked on the Cosby show and was honored to do the show” Fox said. “The man I met was nothing like the man they are describing. He was nice, kind, there was no sexual overtones or anything so I defend him and I stand by him as well, too.”
Phylicia Rashad and Jill Scott have also come to Cosby’s defense during this difficult time.
Cosby has yet to comment on the allegations but during a show in Canada last night (Jan. 8), he joked about the allegations that have been destroying his legacy.
When a woman got up during the show, Cosby asked her where she was going and when she said she was going to get a drink she asked if he wanted one. After he said no, he jokingly told her “You have to be careful about drinking around me.” The crowd surprisingly laughed.
Though one man had to be escorted out for shouting “You’re a rapist” and the woman whom he joked with ended up leaving, Cosby got a standing ovation at the end of the show.
