Phylicia Rashad Pens Letter To Howard Students Over Bill Cosby Support: “I Offer My Most Sincere Apology”

Published: Saturday 3rd Jul 2021 by Sam

Phylicia Rashad may be revered for being one of American television’s most iconic matriarchs, but it didn’t stop her from receiving an avalanche of critique for publicly supporting Bill Cosby. 

As reported, the actress celebrated the 83-year-old’s release from prison following the controversial overturning of his conviction for sexual assault.

Rashad’s comments came a day before she commenced her role as the new dean of the Howard University College of Fine Arts.

Now, in a unique turn of events, the 73-year-old has issued a letter expressing her “most sincere apology” to students and their parents.

Full story below…

CNN obtained the letter, which read:

“My remarks were in no way directed towards survivors of sexual assault. I vehemently oppose sexual violence, find no excuse for such behavior, and I know that Howard University has a zero-tolerance policy toward interpersonal violence.” 

The star – who appeared alongside Bill in ‘The Cosby Show’ – added that over the next few weeks she will “engage in active listening and participate in trainings to not only reinforce University protocol and conduct, but also to learn how I can become a stronger ally to sexual assault survivors and everyone who has suffered at the hands of an abuser.”

Rashad’s latest comments follow a statement from Howard, which voiced similar support for victims of sexual assault and created a demarkation from her initial Cosby support.

    People hear and read what they want to when they’re determined to feel a certain way. They are misdirecting their anger toward Phylicia who is celebrating one case in which she believes a miscarriage of justice was rectified. They should be mad at the prosecutors and their misconduct for having other accusers testify with no right to do so. If they had solid evidence, they should’ve been able to prove their case without the smoke and mirrors and other tricks to get a nearly all-white jury. They are wrong for how they worked to put Bill away the same way they’ve done so many other black men who were unfairly tried.

    In essence, all Phylicia has ever said is that Bill was not given due process, and the Supreme Court agreed. Don’t be mad at her and the court because prosecutors tried to cheat the law to make up for other cases like OJ’s. They knew exactly what they were doing and they’re mad they didn’t get away with it.

      She’s an old dog that needs to be put down.

    Why are people celebrating Cosby being released over a legal technicality as him being innocent. A civil case was brought years ago where he ADMITTED to drugging and abusing women. He was ordered to pay undisclosed funds but made a deal he couldn’t be prosecuted. He is a proven perv and deviant by his own admission. Jail or not he’s guilty.

    I don’t really care for Cosby but I do care about Ms Rashad…Leave her tf alone
