Chuck D wants y'all to know that though he doesn't endorse any of Bill Cosby's recent actions, he is still not here here for wiping out the comedian/actor's historical career.

Chuck D's comments follow shortly after civil rights activists called for the removal of Cosby's star from Hollywood's most star struck sidewalk: the Walk of Fame. Many of Cosby's co-signers also retracted their support for the black entertainment icon, including Jill Scott and Stacey Dash.
