Jill Scott Defends Bill Cosby Over Sexual Assault

Jill Scott Gets Involved in the Bill Cosby Controversy

Singer Jill Scott has spoken out on Twitter to address the continuing sexual assault allegations against comic Bill Cosby. When asked by a follower if she supported Bill, Jill said, "I side with substantiated proof when media/society is attempting to destroy a magnificent legacy." Jill faced immediate backlash from her followers for her comments and later posted a tweet referring to rape as a "despicable, cowardly crime."

Bill Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting at least 13 women. The allegations have been around for years, but they reemerged after comic Hannibal Buress called Bill a "rapist" during a stand-up set in October. Several women have recently come forward to detail their alleged sexual assault at the hands of Bill, including model Janice Dickinson.
