(AllHipHop News) Many critics of the #MeToo movement pointed out that some of the men accused of sexual misconduct were never given due process in a court of law. Bill Cosby has become the exception to that complaint since the legendary comedian was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

However, there are some Cosby fans that still question if he really sexually violated his accusers. Konvict Muzik founder Akon appears to be one of those skeptics.


"You don't really know if he did it or he didn't do it," Akon told TMZ. After the cameraman mentioned the conviction, the singer/producer replied, "Yeah, but it's been a lot of people convicted that's innocent. In a situation like this, I don't know."

Akon added, "I've already been painted a picture of Bill Cosby. He's a hero to me from the pictures that's been painted. It's hard to flip that around because I grew up as a child looking up to this man. And I wasn't there at the trial, so whatever was revealed... These are allegations from 30, 40 years ago. The truth is always a great thing to me."
