Jill Scott Says She Was “Wrong” To Have Supported Bill Cosby
During the height of the Bill Cosby sex abuse scandal, Jill Scott came to the comedian’s defense and supported the 77-year-old despite the egregious allegations.
But after Cosby’s recent deposition confirming that he got prescriptions for Quaaludes back in the 70s with the intent to give them to women he wanted to have sex with, Scot quickly renounced her support.
“About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which is ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations,” she wrote in a series of tweets on Tuesday morning.
“1) We live in America. Many African American men are detained &/or imprisoned for crimes without evidence. I will never jump on bandwagons. 2) based on social media or hearsay. Proof will always matter more than public opinion. The sworn testimony is proof. Completely disgusted. I stood by a man I respected and loved. I was wrong. It HURTS!!! When you get it ALL right, holla.”
More than 25 women have come forward, accusing Cosby of sexual assault.
