Stacey Dash Defends Bill Cosby: He Never Raped Me

Published

on

Republican troll pundit Stacey Dash is one of the few voices in Hollywood coming out and defending comedian, Bill Cosby. Several women have come forward recently accusing the legendary TV actor of raping them. Dash took to Twitter this week to recount her experiences with Cosby, saying he was always respectful towards her:

“I worked with @BillCosby in ’86 when I was 19. We were alone together many times. He was a perfect gentleman and became a mentor to me.”

We’re not sure Dash’s tweet vindicates Mr. Cosby from the damning allegations being levied against him, but it did anger a lot of her followers.

“SHUT THE F*CK UP, STACEY!! YOU IDIOT PIECE OF SH*T!!” one Twitter user wrote.

“You’re about as credible as a crackhead on a speedball. Stick to tryin to be pretty,” another person tweeted.

Earlier this week, former supermodel Janice Dickinson claimed Cosby raped her back in 1982, an allegation his legal team adamantly denies.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
