Naturi Naughton: “Black People Are So Quick To Cancel Each Other, ‘The Cosby Show’ Changed Lives”

Published: Monday 5th Jul 2021 by Sam

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.

    Black women love defending ràpìists and child m********

    So because the Cosby show changed live we should allo the star of the show bill Cosby to ràpè women and get away with it?

    Black women are not known for their intelligence.

        So because white men get away with rààpe, black men should also?

        Damn, f**** them abused kids and abused women and abused men right?

        Pls change ur mentality.
        This is not a game of black and white.

        Black women are dumb!

      Perhaps you should start with spellcheck!

    • Tai July 6, 2021

      Didn’t white stand by and allow their husbands to r*** thousands of women and girls during slavery? Do not white women have a history of lying on black men about r***?

  2. Hmmm… July 5, 2021

    Why would anyone have a difference of opinion on r*** or s3xual assault/harassment? Girl, shut up. The Cosby Show have to do with the allegations. We’re supposed to give a pass because of a tv show you liked? FOH. Also, since when are black people quick to cancel each other? Please see exhibit R Kelly.

  3. Kiely Williams July 5, 2021

    Who cares about The Cosby Show! It’s still being played on TVone, Aspire, Bounce and streaming services. Check your local listings. See this is why I threw a 3-piece from KFC at her dense ass.

    Naturi we are with you, don’t let the millennials who breed n sleep this internet world fool you with their cheesy shaming tactics used when their feelings are hurt.


  6. Louisa July 5, 2021

    The trauma of being drugged and r**** changes lives, too. And it’s people of ALL ethnic backgrounds that disagreed with #ByePhylicia and called for to step down from her role.

  7. Section8DaGreat July 5, 2021

    I just said this. That is why our community is the slowest to make progress. A bunch of crabs in a barrel.

  8. Roberta FlackSabbath July 5, 2021

    There’s always some messed-up auntie who defends r*** and abusive black men.

    It’s like when Celie told Harpo to beat Sofia in The Color Purple. Celie was jealous that Sofia knew how to stand up for herself when Celie was simply beaten-down & weak.

    Black people just can’t stop showing themselves to be DUMB. But then they do support a racist like Joe Biden, so you can’t expect them to have any intelligence any time soon.

  13. Ijs July 5, 2021

    This girl sounds silly. She just wated something to say so interjects herself into the conversation and makes herself sound like a complete idiot. I guess she missed the part where Phylicia promptly walked back her statement because she understood where she went wrong and saw the bigger picture. Race and accomplishments are irrelevant here. Bill should be held accountable.

  14. eric July 5, 2021

    Black people have to have audio and video to validate claims of crime and corruption, but white women are automatically supposed to be believed with zero evidence to show in the court of law. Does that not sound like the way things were when black men were put on trial for fun and promptly hung? History will repeat itself if we don’t fight for fair and due process which is what I thought we were all fighting for along with Phylicia. These people cheated to try to prove their case against Cosby and people are actually okay with that. Unbelievable.

    • Fancy BISH (FCK Maristench, SEWER QUEEN, Danzou The Fool & Clarksdump 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 July 5, 2021

      You’re so on point ✅✅✅💯

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 5, 2021

      He ADMITTED TO IT. What is wrong with you all? Always avoiding FACTS when it comes to race.

      • Hmmm July 5, 2021

        Bill Cosby is r***** that should be in jail of course but the LAW IS THE LAW. If white people can get off on legal technicalities, so can black people. In order to obtain Cosby’s deposition wherein he admitted to drugging the girl, the district attorney PROMISED Cosby that he would NOT be prosecuted. The new district attorney that was subsequently appointed reneged on this promise and moved forward with the prosecution. Put another way, but for the old DA’S promise not to prosecute Cosby, he would have NEVER testified and incriminated himself (5th Amendment guarantees). Based on your comments, I can tell you’re definitely not an attorney or legal expert so SIT DOWN.

      Dear eric,
      Black people are the bottom of the barrel, that’s why nobody believes their lying stinky ass.

  15. True Tea July 5, 2021


    The real problem here is how America want us all to focus on trivia sh*” like this while ignoring internal issues plaguing our communities.

    Bill Cosby is wealthy AF & can clearly afford the best lawyers. I do not GAF about any of these people or their personal problems.

    If anything Black people need to stop focusing on these celebrities. Do celebrities not have family members or close friends who can speak for them?

    If the Black community is supposedly dealing with issues steming from slavery, why burden the people with more BS like this?

    Wonder why the Black community as a collective cannot heal? The very people admired, are in the business of creating more drama. WAKE UP from this spiritual warfare. Protect your energy from the vultures.

    Well that’s why y’all was slaves for 400 years

  17. Unnatural July 5, 2021

    She’s right. With all this talk of building and preserving black excellence, it’s interesting to see how quick black ppl are to cancel each other. Phylicia Rashad gave her opinion and supporting her friend. But ppl quick to ask for cancellation. Want to her be taken down as dean. Mind you after years of black ppl saying she’s never been recognized for her awesome work on the Cosby show, in one fell swoop they are ready to get her fired from a position she earned. A black woman, who has been in this industry for decades and given us her all in entertainment, they want to cancel her. The Cosby show is a classic. A great family show with black actors. Despite what Cosby the man is guilty of, his genius, along with that of the Cosby show cast gave us a gem! But black ppl, again who stay complaining that there is black representation on tv, want to cancel it. With the exception of RKelly, because he put his nasty ish in his music which makes it hard to enjoy the same, go down the list of black entertainers who’ve been crapped on by their own. Nicki Minaj, Megan the Stallion… etc it’s crazy.?

    • True Tea July 5, 2021

      Phylicia Rashad is held to a different standard. Many rappers have done or said things far worse than Phylicia while our society still support them.

      Everything isn’t about race. There are cultural, gender & class privileges within’ every race. Ask yourself why is Chrisette Michele cancelled while Kayne & Lil’ Wayne recieve passes?

      Why does Sha’Carri blame Rhianna for domestic abuse although she was never on the scene? These are clear signs of favoritism & selective outrage based on things outside of race.

  18. Adele July 5, 2021

    Bill Cosby is a self admitted r***** and needs to be cancelled. I don’t understand what these celebs don’t understand. This isn’t a he said she said because Bill admitted to drugging those women. Anyone that is caping for him supports rapists.

  19. Tracee July 5, 2021

    I agree with her

    • Adele July 5, 2021

      Then you’re a dumbass too

  20. Anne July 6, 2021

    She must be slow in the mind. The man has like 60 allegations that include some victims that he admitted to drugging and sleeping with all while he was married and presenting himself as America’s dad and he got away with it for decades. There’s nothing “quick” about his cancellation…it’s long overdue.

    • Anne July 6, 2021

      Oops, my bad, I read her full statement after commenting based on the headline. I don’t think anyone’s cancelling Phylicia. But just like she has the right to support Bill others have the right to disagree with her and say how they feel about her supporting someone like that, especially considering her position on a college campus. Everyone is free to say what they want but you’re also free to suffer the consequences of your statements, especially when made publicly. Freedom of speech rights only protect you from governmental interference, members of the public are free to respond as they see fit as long as its within the law.

    • Eddie Bryant July 7, 2021

      Spoken like a true agent of the Me Too counter intelligence group.

  21. Joahn Webb July 6, 2021

    She is entitled to voice her opinion. We can agree to disagree.

  22. Carolyn July 6, 2021

    I stand with Bill, Ms. Phylicia, and Naturi.

  23. Brandon July 6, 2021

    Nothing about her post said what Bill Cosby did was okay or its okay for men to r*** woman. Geez. Let’s think intelligently and asses. We live in a SYSTEM that LOVES killing and demonizing the Black man. Did Bill Cosby drug and r*** people? Probably. We don’t know that for sure because we don’t have evidence and were not prosecutors, were mere spectators watching the media (that’s controlled by white ppl) Now, does anyone take into account they’re may have been woman who were groupies or woman who wanted s** in exchange for fame or whatever and if Bill Cosby said no or didn’t deliver, they decide to seek revenge and lie for MONEY? Nobody thinks about all these nuances. Bill Cosby was ordered to pay 3M to one person, yet she was so traumatized. What about Cardi B who CONFESSED to making men think she would give them s** while robbing them when they were drugged? Nobody is talking about that and she’s not canceled. I don’t understand that part. Cancelling Phylicia Rashad won’t change the fact that Cosby is out of prison.

  24. Eddie Bryant July 7, 2021

    In essence too many black people have not awakened and are still seeking acceptance from “massa”. They continue to fail to see that the plantation modality was built into the structure that is these united states of Amerikkka. To be pro-black in any way goes against the aforementioned structure. I will say with certainty, all cannot and will not awaken. It is time for the conscious to separate from the zombies or we will all go down when this failing Corporation implodes.

  25. GAIL WILLIAMS July 7, 2021

    I agree with this statement. As a black mom, married to a retired soldier. Who fought for freedom of speech for us all. I am wondering why do we always cast one another aside because of their, expressed feelings in the media. I may not agree with you and you may not agree with me. But we have this constitutional right. Fought for us by many.. let’s do the right thing and learn to disagree in a positive manner.

  26. Yvonne July 7, 2021

    First of all….I don’t believe those woman are solo innocent! If something ( blue pill) was put in their drink unknowingly…that’s another story..but for the ones that say…he gave me a blue pill to take and I took it! You got what you came for!! You just needed an excuse to say…He r**** me! Just in case you get caught! This game goes all the way back to Slavery!!
