Scott now joins a list of other celebrities who have publicly spoken up for Cosby, including Stacey Dash and Raven-Symone. Thankfully, the singer did not take the offensive routes Faizon Love and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League did last month in their tweets in support of the comedian. Cosby remains reticent on the matter.
