The debate surrounding Bill Cosby‘s controversial release from prison and the resulting fall-out rages on.
And this time it’s Naturi Naughton who is weighing in with her two cents.
Full story below…
As reported, Bill’s ‘Cosby Show’ co-star Phylicia Rashad came under fire when she took to social media to celebrate the overturning of the 83-year-old’s conviction for sexual assault.
At the time, the 73-year-old tweeted that “a terrible wrong has been righted.” Remarks that irked many given that Bill arguably only secured his release due to a legal technicality that had nothing to do with innocence.
In the time since Rashad’s new role as dean of Howard University’s College of Fine Arts has been called into question and several apologies have followed. Rashad also confirmed that she’ll be undertaking “training” so as to become a “stronger ally to sexual assault survivors”
However, actress Naughton intimates that the whole situation has been blown out of proportion.
Taking to Instagram Stories, the former ‘Power’ star wrote:
“Why are Black people so quick to #Cancel each other!
We are ALLOWED to have different opinions and it doesn’t make you ANTI-anything. @phyliciarashad I stand with you.
