Keisha Knight-Pulliam Fired From Apprentice For Refusing To Call Bill Cosby
On Donald Trump's often controversial show Celebrity Apprentice, teams of celebrities work through a series of challenges in order to earn money for a charity of their choice. On January 4 the show debuted with a bang, as Keisha Knight-Pulliam, known for being the youngest daughter on The Cosby Show, was fired after refusing to call on her former television dad for help.
When asked to call Cosby (who is currently battling multiple allegations of sexual assault) and ask for a donation during a contest, Pulliam refused, revealing that the two had not spoken in years. She was then slammed by teammates prior to being let go by Trump who later took to Twitter to state, "This show was taped just before the terrible Bill Cosby revelations came to light. She still should have asked him for money-goes to charity."
Pulliam explained, "I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don't know how long. So for me to pick up the phone, having not talked to you for five years, except for when we run into each other for a Cosby event, I feel that's not my place to do."
