Bill Cosby Thanks Jill Scott For Coming To His Defense

As the rape allegations continue to mount against Bill Cosby – including a new lawsuit by a woman who claims he raped her at 15 years old – it seems the comedian appreciates any support he can get.

Earlier this week, Jill Scott came to his defense, stating that society and media are “attempting to destroy a magnificent legacy.” Whoopi Goldberg also showed skepticism in regard to the allegations against Cosby on an episode of The View last month. “I’m going to reserve my judgement because I have a lot of questions,” she remarked to her co-hosts.

Today (Dec. 3), Cosby took to his Twitter account to thank both Scott and Goldberg for their comments:

Cosby has not offered any new comment in response to the latest claims made against him.
